The Punishment of "Crime and Punishment"

I remember spending innumerable amounts of time suffering my way through Dostoyevsky's novel Crime and Punishment in high-school. True it’s a deeply psychological novel, but at that point I hadn’t quite grasped the concept of psychology and having to read the book (despite moments of interest) was for me the equivalent of a literary torture rack. Now, years later I’ve felt a spark of interest and a desire to not only reread Crime and Punishment but to give Dostoyevsky’s other books a try as well (I secretly think this is mostly due to the influence of the Russian Literature class I am taking at the moment). However, for those of you who found Crime and Punishment to be, well, not a form of punishment imposed upon you by a zealous school system and if you enjoy dissecting Dostoyevsky’s literature, here is an article that gives a deep reading on the story of “The Grand Inquisitor” that is present in Dostoyevsky’s book The Brothers Karamazov. Enjoy! :)
