Dostoevsky said: “Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart. The really great men must, I think, have great sadness on earth.” The first American edition of the author’s masterpiece, Crime and Punishment was published in New York in 1886. Since our teenage years, we have been discussing the poor student, who decides to kill the old lady.
