Crime and Punishment
Original title: Crime et châtiment
The first graphic adaptation of a Russian literary classic.
Bastien Loukia, a scenarist and illustrator, has created a remarkable graphic adaptation of Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky, first published in 1866.
Here, Raskolnikov is the narrator as well as the main character. Having found the perfect balance between text and illustration, Loukia uses his voice and talent to bring out the Russian writer’s psychological and sociological sensitivity. His plates, with intense colours and haunting brushstrokes, take us to the heart of the Dostoyevskian darkness and the obscurity of the human condition.
