Abstract

This study is about the idea of 'Superman', an extraordinary individual, who sets apart from most other men. Me has the right to commit any crime and to transgress the law in any way because he is extraordinary. This idea becomes one of the reflections of human?s life that has been portrayed in a literary work. One of the literary works that reflects this idea is Crime and Punishment, by Fyodor Dostoevsky. The main character in this novel, Raskolnikov, tries to apply an overman concept towards several aspects in his life. However, he has wrong implementations over it. This study tries to prove how raskolnikov?s wrong implementations cause him to fail to be an overman. Through the literary approach and Nietzschean overman theory, this study tries to show which character traits of Raskolnikov that make him fail to be an overman. Finally, this study showa that it is difficult to apply the overman theory into this life, which as an overman he must be able to stand alone that makes him alienated from the rest of the society.
