Characteristics: Comment by Milagros: The two points are justified in subtitles when they represent a pause to introduce another detail to the title. Eg. "Caracas: City of contrasts". Otherwise, it is better to eliminate them.
The crime and punishment novel is told by an external narrator who speaks in the third person. It is narrated with elements of real events. It is of great psychological depth, exploring in the human unconscious. Crime and punishment, in a way recounts the suffering, states of confusion, dreams and delusions of the protagonist. As well as the redemption of a criminal through love. Dostoevski, as if I were a master of psychology, rummiates the emotions and feelings of the characters, as well as the games that the unconscious makes, determining in man behaviors that you can not explain to himself later.
This novel covers something very important when reading. On the other hand, crime and punishment is a work that Summit of Universal Literature. In addition to its literary value, the deepening of the aspects of the human psyche must be taken into account. Rummage in the personality and unconscious of man, through the different characters.
In this sense we can quote: "The states of confusion of the protagonist and his feelings of superiority reach the point of believing that crime can be executed without generating guilt, in the case of the death of someone who is harmful to humanity". Comment by Milagros: Who is the appointment? Who provides this information?
The personalities of the usurera, which the protagonist compares with a social plague is a tragedy since he would be killed with an ax. A moralizing aspect of the story is the attitude of the drunk’s wife run over by a truck, although he is a liar, he does not request compensation for the dead since he says that he, in his state of drunkenness, was responsible for throwing himselfTo the street without the slightest care. The work crime and punishment exposes the reader the human emotions and feelings and the circumstances in which they occur: the young woman who prostitutes itself, to relieve the misery of the family, is redeemed for love of Rodion. Comment by Milagros: What do you mean with "Personalities"? Does the usurera have a personality disorder?
The delighting crises, which the protagonist suffers, is due to a game of his own consciousness, which he blocked driven by the desire to get out of misery and now manifests himself a car judging by crime. It is the attitude of a person who has a moral fund that reproaches his behavior. In interrogations it is betrayed by its unconscious and betrays;as can happen in real life, that he in the end gives himself and declared himself guilty.
The attitude of a fat brush painter stands out, who was considered suspicious and the man, after many interrogations, confuses and says that he is the murderer, being innocent. These cases can happen and in criminology analysis there are similar cases. Rodión compares its crime with those committed by the insurrections and wars that pursue the purposes of power over others. He says that he finds no differences between those crimes and the one committed by him and that killing with bombs and weapons is the same as doing so with the resource of an ax.
You can see the great love and attachment you feel towards your sister and mother. He refuses to accept that the first marries, to financially help the family and does not accept that he sacrifice himself to get out of misery. When Rodión gets sick, he despises the help and affection that family members can provide. He encloses within himself, so that all his suffering suffers in solitude, without wanting to disturb their loved ones. Being in prison does not decline his attitude of superiority over others and manifests it with inmates, treating them with contempt. Until his beloved Sonia, the daughter of the dead drunk. He believes that she is going to die and then leans at her feet. There begins the redemption of the young. Love transforms and changes it, hoping that, when you fulfill the penalty, it will marry her.

Crime and punishment is the work with the highest number of citations in the world of literature, especially since, in addition to its literary value, they consider it as the beginning of the psychological genre of the novel.

Comment by miracles: although feelings are not frequently related to the mind, right?
Now we proceed to make a comparison with the book El Cuervo de Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe’s crow, was originally disclosed in January 1845, the poem often stands out for its rhythm, elegant expression and supernatural air, Poe claimed to have written the poem logically and methodically, with the intention of creating apoem that attracted both the taste of critics and that of common people, as explained in his complementary essay of 1846. He explains that each component of the poem is based on logic: the crow enters the camera to avoid a storm (the "dreary midnight" in the "gloomy December"), and its hanger on a pale white bust was to create visual contrast against thedark black bird. No aspect of the poem was an accident, he says, but is based on the total control of the author. Learn a little more about Poe’s composition in this video. Comment by Milagros: Crisxandra, if you are going to copy the Internet text, at least read what you are copying so as not to make mistakes of this type. Use information that we have not generated, without citing the source or giving credit to its author, is plagiarism.
Cuervo Edgar Allan Poe follows an anonymous narrator unlike crime and punish. He tells himself that he is nothing more than a visitor, and that he will wait tomorrow because he cannot find liberation in his pain for Leonora’s death. The strident curtains scare him, but he decides that he must be a late visitor and heads to the door, he asks for forgiveness to the visitor because he had been sleeping the nap.
However, when he opens the door, he sees and hears nothing except the word "Leonora", an echo of his own words. Upon returning to your room, again listens to a tracheteo and reason that it was probably the wind outside your window. When the window opens, however, a crow enters and quickly poses "on a blast bust" on its door. His arduous appearance entertains the narrator, who asks him for his names, the crow responds: "Never again".
This is a literary work very different from the previous one since it is about romanticism. Cuervo Edgar Allan Poe is the most famous poem of this author, notable for his melodic and dramatic qualities. Combined with the predominant scheme of the final rhyme and the frequent use of internal rhyme, "nothing else" and "never again" give the poem a musical touch when they are read aloud. Poe also emphasizes the sound in words like "Leonora" and "Never Again" to underline the melancholic and lonely sound of the poem, also establish the general atmosphere. Finally, the repetition of "never again" gives a circular meaning to the poem and contributes to what Poe calls the unit of effect, where each word and line is added to the broader meaning of the poem. Next on video another analysis of the crow by Edgar Allan Poe.
The fear of death or oblivion informs much of Poe’s writing, and "El Cuervo" is one of his most gloomy publications because he provides such a definitely negative response. On the contrary, when Poe uses Leonora’s name in a similar situation in the poem "Leonora", the protagonist Guy de Vere concludes that he does not need to cry in his mourning because he trusts that he will meet Leonora in heaven. Poe’s choice of a crow as a carrier of bad news is appropriate for a series of reasons.
Originally, Poe was only looking for a silly beast that was able to produce similar sounds to humans without understanding the meaning of words, and said that the previous conceptions of "El Cuervo" included the use of a parrot. In this sense, the crow is important because it allows the narrator to be the transmitter and interpreter of the sinister message, without the existence of an openly supernatural intervention. Due to the late time of the assembly of the poem and the mental confusion of the narrator, the poem questions the narrator’s reliability. At first, the narrator tries to give his experiences a rational explanation, but at the end of the poem, he has stopped giving the crow any interpretation beyond what he invents in his own head. The crow serves, as well as a fragment of his soul.
Leather unlike crime and punishment has a double impression, since Edgar Allan Poe’s crow made it a family name and a national celebrity almost immediately. The readers began to identify the poem with the poet, which earned Poe the nickname of "El Cuervo". The poem soon was widely reprinted, imitated and parodied. Although Poe Popular in his day, he did not bring him a significant financial success. As he later lamented, "I have not earned money".
These two books are different plus each achievement to be very recognized, crime and crime and punish. The crow has traditionally been considered a magical sign of bad omen, and POE refers to Nordic mythology, where the god Odin had two crows called Hugin and Munin, which meant respectively thought and memory. The narration of this story is incognito unlike crime and punishment that was narrated in the third person and pulling more to realism, which made it a little easier to understand.
It should be noted that the crow is a book that may like to hate it, but very interesting in exchange for crime and punishment that if the reader seeks something light to read and has no interest in psychology, or does not want to deepen that unfathomable ocean thatIt is the human mind, you may not produce this novel emotion.
Both very good but at the same time very different.
