Legacy section - draft[edit]

I think that section is too clunky. I propose a more structured version: {{Collapse|1=

Time to put the "disputed" tag back?[edit]

Before this edit by an IP, the article read "A detective novel,[188] Crime and Punishment describes Rodion Raskolnikov's life...". The source for this was (well, wasn't, more like it) Cicovacki p. 80, which says "... the title may suggest a detective novel. Nothing could be further from the truth", expanded on in a footnote: "... the view that C and P is not a detective novel follows A Cascardi ..." (emphasis mine). Given that SilkTork detected many inaccuracies in their meticulous review – none of which have been addressed – and this glaring factual error, wouldn't it be better to put the tag back again? I mean, how can we be sure, without checking everything against the sources, that there aren't more inconsistencies like this? Best, --Coco Lacoste (talk) 16:28, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

shorten lead[edit]

I think the lead section is extremely long, and should be shortened. Costatitanica (talk) 19:44, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

This article nominated for removal from list of vital articles[edit]

I just nominated this article to be removed from the "vital articles" list on the grounds that only one writer should represent the Great Russians and Tolstoy is a fraction more exemplary.
