Raskolnikov, a conflicted former student, lives in a tiny, rented room in Saint Petersburg. He refuses all help, even from his friend Razumikhin, and devises a plan to murder and rob an elderly pawn-broker and money-lender, Alyona Ivanovna. His motivation comes from the overwhelming sense that he is predetermined to kill the old woman by some power outside of himself.Rodion Romanovitch Raskolnikov est un ancien étudiant en Droit âgé de 23 ans, sans le sou. Par manque d'argent, il a dû abandonner ses études et vit dans un quartier mal famé de Saint-Pétersbourg. Rongé par la pauvreté, il s'isole du reste du monde. Après qu'il vend son dernier bien, la montre de son père, à une usurière, une idée lui vient à l'esprit : un meurtre est-il moralement tolérable s'il conduit à une amélioration de la condition humaine ? Il a décidé d'assassiner l'usurière depuis quelque temps, mais son plan ne se déroule pas comme prévu et il commet un double meurtre. Pris de remords et de culpabilité, il se rend compte qu'il ne peut être pardonné et qu'il ne sera jamais un grand homme, comme il l'espère tant. Raskolnikov passe du crime au châtiment. Après être tombé malade et être resté au lit, cloué par la fièvre, pendant plusieurs jours, Raskolnikov s’imagine que tous ceux qu’il rencontre le suspectent du meurtre ; la conscience de son crime le rend presque fou. Mais il rencontre Sonia Semionovna, une jeune prostituée dont il tombe amoureux.
