When I left the Public Defender’s Office, 9th Judicial Circuit in Orlando, Florida, Joe DuRocher gave me this set of prints. The Honourable Joseph DuRocher was the Public Defender at the time. He was also my good friend and colleague especially in our political and social activism and work for human rights, liberty and justice especially abolition of the death penalty. Joe passed away in 2012.

In keeping with Eichenberg’s illustrations with wood engravings and his renown for illustrating the Russian literary classics, including works by Dostoevsky and Tolstoy, here are a few of his works for Fyodor Dostoevsky’s “Crime and Punishment” 1938.

The New Translation

I first touched on the new translation of Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment here including this excerpt:

From the new translation of Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment: This acclaimed new translation of Dostoyevsky’s “psychological record of a crime” gives his dark masterpiece of murder and pursuit a renewed vitality, expressing its jagged, staccato urgency and fevered atmosphere as never before. Raskolnikov, a destitute and desperate former student, wanders alone through the slums of St. Petersburg, deliriously imagining himself above society’s laws. But when he commits a random murder, only suffering ensues. Embarking on a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a suspicious police investigator, Raskolnikov finds the noose of his own guilt tightening around his neck. Only Sonya, a downtrodden prostitute, can offer the chance of redemption.
