Description: 
Continues 'Gadfly - early '50s - Part 2.' Multiple people are speaking at once. Stan Brakhage discusses Fyodor Dostoyevsky's 'Crime and Punishment' and reads an excerpt from it. Speaker 2 analyzes Rodion Raskolnikov, the protagonist from Crime and Punishment. Brakhage compares 'Crime and Punishment' to Alfred Hitchcock's film 'Rope.' The speakers have a discussion about Raskolnikov's motives for his crime. Speaker 2 analyzes Rashkolnikov's character. Brakhage lauds Edgar Allan Poe's 'The Murders in the Rue Morgue' and mentions Thomas Mann's writings on Dostoyevsky. A radio advertisement for cigarettes plays. Note: This recording is likely from an extracurricular student meeting at South High School Denver, which Brakhage attended.
