Sometimes new translations of old favourites are surplus to our requirements.
Sometimes, though, a new translation really makes us see a favourite masterpiece afresh. Ready brings out this quality well.
That knife-edge between sentimentality and farce has been so skilfully and delicately captured here. The central scene in the book. We should treasure this new translation and, indeed, this new book.
This new Deluxe edition.
It is the real thing. Inside one finds an excellent apparatus: Ready manages to cleave as closely as any prior translator to both spirit and letter, while rendering them into an English that is a relief to read. Ready evokes the crux of Crime and Punishment with more power than the previous translators have.
Crime and Punishment
His translation also manages to revive the disturbing humor of the original. In the course of my work, I go through mountains of nonfiction to try to understand the world. This summer, I was reminded of the power of a novel to uncover something much deeper about the human spirit.

(Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)
On an exceptionally hot evening early in July a young man came out of the garret in which he lodged in S. Place and walked slowly, as though in hesitation, towards K.
He had successfully avoided meeting his landlady on the staircase. His garret was under the roof of a high, five-storied house and was more like a cupboard than a room.
The landlady who provided him with garret, dinners, and attendance, lived on the floor below, and every time he went out he was obliged to pass her kitchen, the door of which invariably stood open.
And each time he passed, the young man had a sick, frightened feeling, which made him scowl and feel ashamed. He was hopelessly in debt to his landlady, and was afraid of meeting her. This was not because he was cowardly and abject, quite the contrary; but for some time past he had been in an overstrained irritable condition, verging on hypochondria.
CRIME AND PUNISHMENT
He had become so completely absorbed in himself, and isolated from his fellows that he dreaded meeting, not only his landlady, but anyone at all. He was crushed by poverty, but the anxieties of his position had of late ceased to weigh upon him. He had given up attending to matters of practical importance; he had lost all desire to do so.
Nothing that any landlady could do had a real terror for him. But to be stopped on the stairs, to be forced to listen to her trivial, irrelevant gossip, to pestering demands for payment, threats and complaints, and to rack his brains for excuses, to prevaricate, to lie—no, rather than that, he would creep down the stairs like a cat and slip out unseen.
This evening, however, on coming out into the street, he became acutely aware of his fears. It would be interesting to know what it is men are most afraid of.

He was so weary after a whole month of concentrated wretchedness and gloomy excitement that he longed to rest, if only for a moment, in some other world, whatever it might be; and, in spite of the filthiness of the surroundings, he was glad now to stay in the tavern. The master of the establishment was in another room, but he frequently came down some steps into the main room, his jaunty, tarred boots with red turn-over tops coming into view each time before the rest of his person.
He wore a full coat and a horribly greasy black satin waistcoat, with no cravat, and his whole face seemed smeared with oil like an iron lock. At the counter stood a boy of about fourteen, and there was another boy somewhat younger who handed whatever was wanted. On the counter lay some sliced cucumber, some pieces of dried black bread, and some fish, chopped up small, all smelling very bad.
It was insufferably close, and so heavy with the fumes of spirits that five minutes in such an atmosphere might well make a man drunk. Crime and Punishment Fyodor Dostoevsky, Copyright notice These books are published in Australia and are out of copyright here.Jul 14, Pages download.
But when he commits a random murder, only suffering ensues. With my rags I ought to wear a cap, any sort of old pancake, but not this grotesque thing.
Reiss Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, , If they burn him alive in an intensely painful fashion, he would fear the pain of the fire, but he would have no stake in the justice of the foreign community that condemns him.
