[PART I] [13] On an exceptionally hot evening early in July a young man came out of

[PART I] [32] upon him. He had given up attending to matters of practical

[PART I] [60] houses, which are particularly numerous in that part of the town, and

[PART I] [67] speaking into a complete blankness of mind; he walked along not
[PART I] [69] to time, he would mutter something, from the habit of talking to
[PART I] [76] quarter of the town, however, scarcely any shortcoming in dress would
[PART I] [77] have created surprise. Owing to the proximity of the Hay Market, the
[PART I] [78] number of establishments of bad character, the preponderance of the
[PART I] [80] alleys in the heart of Petersburg, types so various were to be seen in
[PART I] [83] man's heart, that, in spite of all the fastidiousness of youth, he
[PART I] [84] minded his rags least of all in the street. It was a different matter

[PART I] [126] employed on the building. The young man was very glad to meet none of
[PART I] [136] porters who were engaged in moving furniture out of a flat. He knew
[PART I] [141] the bell of the old woman's flat. The bell gave a faint tinkle as
[PART I] [142] though it were made of tin and not of copper. The little flats in such
[PART I] [144] note of that bell, and now its peculiar tinkle seemed to remind him of
[PART I] [149] eyes, glittering in the darkness. But, seeing a number of people on

[PART I] [177] and pointing to the door of the room, she said, letting her visitor
[PART I] [178] pass in front of her:
[PART I] [190] The furniture, all very old and of yellow wood, consisted of a sofa
[PART I] [191] with a huge bent wooden back, an oval table in front of the sofa, a

[PART I] [312] burning thirst. He longed for a drink of cold beer, and attributed his
[PART I] [313] sudden weakness to the want of food. He sat down at a sticky little
[PART I] [319] all to worry about! It's simply physical derangement. Just a glass of
[PART I] [320] beer, a piece of dry bread--and in one moment the brain is stronger,
[PART I] [324] But in spite of this scornful reflection, he was by now looking
[PART I] [327] even at that moment he had a dim foreboding that this happier frame of
[PART I] [331] drunken men he had met on the steps, a group consisting of about five
[PART I] [335] extremely so, sitting before a pot of beer, and his companion, a huge,
[PART I] [339] apart and the upper part of his body bounding about on the bench,
[PART I] [363] society of every sort, more especially of late. But now all at once he
[PART I] [365] taking place within him, and with it he felt a sort of thirst for
[PART I] [366] company. He was so weary after a whole month of concentrated
[PART I] [368] a moment, in some other world, whatever it might be; and, in spite of
[PART I] [369] the filthiness of the surroundings, he was glad now to stay in the

[PART I] [377] like an iron lock. At the counter stood a boy of about fourteen, and
[PART I] [379] On the counter lay some sliced cucumber, some pieces of dried black
[PART I] [381] insufferably close, and so heavy with the fumes of spirits that five
[PART I] [393] weary of it, showing a shade of condescending contempt for them as
[PART I] [394] persons of station and culture inferior to his own, with whom it would

[PART I] [397] continual drinking, was of a yellow, even greenish, tinge, with
[PART I] [398] swollen eyelids out of which keen reddish eyes gleamed like little
[PART I] [400] in his eyes as though of intense feeling--perhaps there were even
[PART I] [401] thought and intelligence, but at the same time there was a gleam of
[PART I] [404] one he had buttoned, evidently clinging to this last trace of
[PART I] [416] experience admonishes me that you are a man of education and not
[PART I] [423] grandiloquent style of the speaker and also at being so directly
[PART I] [424] addressed. In spite of the momentary desire he had just been feeling
[PART I] [425] for company of any sort, on being actually spoken to he felt
[PART I] [430] thought! I'm a man of experience, immense experience, sir," and he
[PART I] [435] spoke fluently and boldly, only occasionally losing the thread of his

[PART I] [444] out of human society with a stick, he is swept out with a broom, so as
[PART I] [449] understand? Allow me to ask you another question out of simple
[PART I] [456] so. . . ." He filled his glass, emptied it and paused. Bits of hay
[PART I] [468] habit of frequently entering into conversation with strangers of all
[PART I] [471] kept in order at home. Hence in the company of other drinkers they try
[PART I] [491] why should he? For he knows of course that I shan't pay it back. From
[PART I] [509] wagging of their heads; for everyone knows everything about it
[PART I] [520] so be it, I am a pig, but she is a lady! I have the semblance of a
[PART I] [521] beast, but Katerina Ivanovna, my spouse, is a person of education and
[PART I] [523] a woman of a noble heart, full of sentiments, refined by education.
[PART I] [528] she only does it out of pity--for I repeat without being ashamed, she
[PART I] [540] order of things, but her stockings, her stockings I have sold for
[PART I] [554] to read some trouble of mind. When you came in I read it, and that was
[PART I] [555] why I addressed you at once. For in unfolding to you the story of my
[PART I] [558] a man of feeling and education. Know then that my wife was educated in
[PART I] [559] a high-class school for the daughters of noblemen, and on leaving she
[PART I] [561] which she was presented with a gold medal and a certificate of merit.
[PART I] [562] The medal . . . well, the medal of course was sold--long ago, hm . . .
[PART I] [563] but the certificate of merit is in her trunk still and not long ago
[PART I] [566] of her past honours and of the happy days that are gone. I don't
[PART I] [568] recollection of the past, and all the rest is dust and ashes. Yes,
[PART I] [569] yes, she is a lady of spirit, proud and determined. She scrubs the
[PART I] [577] father's house. She was exceedingly fond of her husband; but he gave
[PART I] [579] her at the end: and although she paid him back, of which I have
[PART I] [580] authentic documentary evidence, to this day she speaks of him with
[PART I] [582] though only in imagination, she should think of herself as having once
[PART I] [586] and downs of all sort, I don't feel equal to describing it even. Her
[PART I] [589] widower, with a daughter of fourteen left me by my first wife, offered
[PART I] [590] her my hand, for I could not bear the sight of such suffering. You can
[PART I] [591] judge the extremity of her calamities, that she, a woman of education
[PART I] [600] that through no fault of mine but through changes in the office; and
[PART I] [606] lost it: for my weakness had come out. . . . We have now part of a
[PART I] [608] what we pay our rent with, I could not say. There are a lot of people
[PART I] [612] step-mother whilst she was growing up, I won't speak of. For, though
[PART I] [613] Katerina Ivanovna is full of generous feelings, she is a spirited

[PART I] [620] end. We stopped at Cyrus of Persia. Since she has attained years of
[PART I] [621] maturity, she has read other books of romantic tendency and of late
[PART I] [624] extracts from it to us: and that's the whole of her education. And now
[PART I] [630] civil counsellor--have you heard of him?--has not to this day paid her
[PART I] [639] three days! I was lying at the time . . . well, what of it! I was
[PART I] [643] that?' And Darya Frantsovna, a woman of evil character and very well
[PART I] [646] jeer, 'you are something mighty precious to be so careful of!' But
[PART I] [649] illness and the crying of the hungry children; and it was said more to
[PART I] [653] kerchief and her cape, and go out of the room and about nine o'clock

[PART I] [700] man of modern political and enlightened ideas. I returned home, and
[PART I] [705] party of revellers already drunk came in from the street, and the
[PART I] [706] sounds of a hired concertina and the cracked piping voice of a child
[PART I] [707] of seven singing "The Hamlet" were heard in the entry. The room was

[PART I] [713] revive him, and was positively reflected in a sort of radiance on his
[PART I] [717] and Sonia heard of it, mercy on us, it was as though I stepped into
[PART I] [718] the kingdom of Heaven. It used to be: you can lie like a beast,
[PART I] [729] dreamed of till then. She had not any dresses . . . none at all, but
[PART I] [732] all, she'd done her hair nicely, put on a clean collar of some sort,
[PART I] [747] spite of your propensity to that foolish weakness, since you promise
[PART I] [751] herself, and not simply out of wantonness, for the sake of bragging;
[PART I] [758] you would not think much of me as a husband, would you? . . . Well,
[PART I] [763] appearance of the man, the five nights in the hay barge, and the pot
[PART I] [764] of spirits, and yet this poignant love for his wife and children
[PART I] [770] to others, and perhaps I am only worrying you with the stupidity of
[PART I] [771] all the trivial details of my home life, but it is not a laughing
[PART I] [772] matter to me. For I can feel it all. . . . And the whole of that
[PART I] [773] heavenly day of my life and the whole of that evening I passed in
[PART I] [774] fleeting dreams of how I would arrange it all, and how I would dress
[PART I] [776] rescue my own daughter from dishonour and restore her to the bosom of
[PART I] [778] Well, then, sir" (Marmeladov suddenly gave a sort of start, raised his
[PART I] [782] Katerina Ivanovna the key of her box, took out what was left of my
[PART I] [783] earnings, how much it was I have forgotten, and now look at me, all of
[PART I] [785] there and it's the end of my employment, and my uniform is lying in a
[PART I] [787] on . . . and it's the end of everything!"
[PART I] [792] slyness and affectation of bravado, he glanced at Raskolnikov, laughed
[PART I] [798] "You don't say she gave it to you?" cried one of the new-comers; he
[PART I] [814] means? And here I, her own father, here I took thirty copecks of that
[PART I] [825] Shouts of laughter and even oaths followed. The laughter and the oaths
[PART I] [827] nothing but were simply looking at the figure of the discharged
[PART I] [836] oh judge, crucify me but pity me! And then I will go of myself to be
[PART I] [838] . . . Do you suppose, you that sell, that this pint of yours has been
[PART I] [839] sweet to me? It was tribulation I sought at the bottom of it, tears
[PART I] [844] cross, consumptive step-mother and for the little children of another?
[PART I] [852] and the meek. . . . And when He has done with all of them, then He
[PART I] [854] drunkards, come forth, ye weak ones, come forth, ye children of
[PART I] [857] of the Beast and with his mark; but come ye also!' And the wise ones
[PART I] [858] and those of understanding will say, 'Oh Lord, why dost Thou receive
[PART I] [860] this is why I receive them, oh ye of understanding, that not one of
[PART I] [861] them believed himself to be worthy of this.' And He will hold out His
[PART I] [867] oblivious of his surroundings and plunged in deep thought. His words
[PART I] [868] had created a certain impression; there was a moment of silence; but
[PART I] [889] "It's not Katerina Ivanovna I am afraid of now," he muttered in
[PART I] [892] she does begin pulling it, that's not what I am afraid of . . . it's
[PART I] [893] her eyes I am afraid of . . . yes, her eyes . . . the red on her
[PART I] [896] excited? I am frightened of the children's crying, too. . . . For if
[PART I] [898] don't know! But blows I am not afraid of. . . . Know, sir, that such
[PART I] [901] her heart . . . it's better so . . . There is the house. The house of
[PART I] [907] was quite dark at the top of the stairs.
[PART I] [909] A grimy little door at the very top of the stairs stood ajar. A very
[PART I] [911] the whole of it was visible from the entrance. It was all in disorder,
[PART I] [912] littered up with rags of all sorts, especially children's garments.
[PART I] [915] and a sofa covered with American leather, full of holes, before which
[PART I] [917] of the table stood a smoldering tallow-candle in an iron candlestick.
[PART I] [918] It appeared that the family had a room to themselves, not part of a
[PART I] [923] there. Words of the most unceremonious kind flew out from time to
[PART I] [933] light of the candle-end playing upon it made a sickening impression.

[PART I] [941] girl of six, was asleep, sitting curled up on the floor with her head
[PART I] [943] corner, probably he had just had a beating. Beside him stood a girl of
[PART I] [950] larger still from the thinness of her frightened face, were watching
[PART I] [952] on his knees in the very doorway, pushing Raskolnikov in front of him.
[PART I] [956] had to pass through hers to get there. Taking no further notice of
[PART I] [992] in dressing gowns flung open, in costumes of unseemly scantiness, some
[PART I] [993] of them with cards in their hands. They were particularly diverted,
[PART I] [999] by ordering her with coarse abuse to clear out of the room next day.
[PART I] [1008] taken it, he dismissed it with a wave of his hand and went back to his
[PART I] [1014] Sonia! What a mine they've dug there! And they're making the most of
[PART I] [1015] it! Yes, they are making the most of it! They've wept over it and
[PART I] [1022] whole race of mankind--then all the rest is prejudice, simply
[PART I] [1032] looked with hatred at his room. It was a tiny cupboard of a room about
[PART I] [1035] that a man of more than average height was ill at ease in it and felt
[PART I] [1041] whole of one wall and half the floor space of the room; it was once
[PART I] [1046] clean and dirty, by way of a bolster. A little table stood in front of
[PART I] [1049] It would have been difficult to sink to a lower ebb of disorder, but
[PART I] [1050] to Raskolnikov in his present state of mind this was positively
[PART I] [1052] in its shell, and even the sight of a servant girl who had to wait
[PART I] [1057] thought of expostulating with her, though he went without his dinner.
[PART I] [1074] She set before him her own cracked teapot full of weak and stale tea
[PART I] [1075] and laid two yellow lumps of sugar by the side of it.

[PART I] [1083] have some cabbage soup instead of sausage? It's capital soup,
[PART I] [1098] "You don't pay her money and you won't turn out of the room. That's
[PART I] [1116] "What sort of work?"
[PART I] [1120] Nastasya was overcome with a fit of laughter. She was given to
[PART I] [1127] "One can't go out to give lessons without boots. And I'm sick of it."
[PART I] [1131] "They pay so little for lessons. What's the use of a few coppers?" he

[PART I] [1156] mother, from the province of R----. He turned pale when he took it. It
[PART I] [1167] so dear and familiar, of the mother who had once taught him to read
[PART I] [1168] and write. He delayed; he seemed almost afraid of something. At last
[PART I] [1170] two large sheets of note paper were covered with very small
[PART I] [1179] given up the university some months ago, for want of means to keep
[PART I] [1181] How could I help you out of my hundred and twenty roubles a year
[PART I] [1183] borrowed, as you know, on security of my pension, from Vassily
[PART I] [1184] Ivanovitch Vahrushin a merchant of this town. He is a kind-hearted
[PART I] [1185] man and was a friend of your father's too. But having given him
[PART I] [1190] congratulate ourselves on our good fortune now, of which I hasten
[PART I] [1207] governess in their family, on condition of part of her salary
[PART I] [1220] nothing when it is now all over. In short, in spite of the kind
[PART I] [1221] and generous behaviour of Marfa Petrovna, Mr. Svidrigalov's wife,
[PART I] [1222] and all the rest of the household, Dounia had a very hard time,
[PART I] [1224] regimental habits, was under the influence of Bacchus. And how do
[PART I] [1227] beginning, but had concealed it under a show of rudeness and
[PART I] [1229] flighty hopes, considering his years and his being the father of a
[PART I] [1233] Dounia an open and shameful proposal, promising her all sorts of
[PART I] [1235] her to another estate of his, or even abroad. You can imagine all
[PART I] [1237] not only on account of the money debt, but also to spare the
[PART I] [1238] feelings of Marfa Petrovna, whose suspicions would have been
[PART I] [1239] aroused: and then Dounia would have been the cause of a rupture in
[PART I] [1243] awful house for another six weeks. You know Dounia, of course; you
[PART I] [1247] me about everything for fear of upsetting me, although we were
[PART I] [1252] of it all. An awful scene took place between them on the spot in
[PART I] [1258] it up and packing it. And a heavy shower of rain came on, too, and
[PART I] [1267] full of sorrow, I could not. For a whole month the town was full
[PART I] [1268] of gossip about this scandal, and it came to such a pass that
[PART I] [1269] Dounia and I dared not even go to church on account of the
[PART I] [1273] intending to insult us in a shameful way, smearing the gates of
[PART I] [1278] coming into the town, and as she is rather talkative and fond of
[PART I] [1279] gossiping about her family affairs and particularly of complaining
[PART I] [1280] to all and each of her husband--which is not at all right--so in
[PART I] [1288] and unmistakable proof of Dounia's innocence, in the form of a
[PART I] [1294] with great heat and indignation for the baseness of his behaviour
[PART I] [1296] and head of a family and telling him how infamous it was of him to
[PART I] [1300] cannot read it without tears. Moreover, the evidence of the
[PART I] [1305] us, but she was completely convinced of Dounia's innocence. The
[PART I] [1314] nobility of her feelings and her behavior. What was more, she
[PART I] [1317] copies of it--which I must say I think was superfluous. In this
[PART I] [1324] for every reading of it, even many who had heard it several times
[PART I] [1326] opinion a great deal, a very great deal of all this was
[PART I] [1329] the whole ignominy of this affair rested as an indelible disgrace
[PART I] [1333] several families, but she refused. All of a sudden everyone began
[PART I] [1343] This was how it happened. He is already of the rank of a
[PART I] [1351] Petersburg, so that every moment is precious to him. At first, of
[PART I] [1356] that he is forty-five years old, but he is of a fairly
[PART I] [1362] will do, beware of judging him too hastily and severely, as your
[PART I] [1371] he shares, as he expressed it, many of the convictions 'of our
[PART I] [1372] most rising generation' and he is an opponent of all prejudices.
[PART I] [1374] likes to be listened to, but this is scarcely a vice. I, of
[PART I] [1375] course, understood very little of it, but Dounia explained to me
[PART I] [1376] that, though he is not a man of great education, he is clever and
[PART I] [1379] has a passionate heart, as I know very well. Of course, there is
[PART I] [1381] clever girl and has the heart of an angel, and will make it her
[PART I] [1383] happiness his care. Of that we have no good reason to doubt,
[PART I] [1385] haste. Besides he is a man of great prudence and he will see, to
[PART I] [1386] be sure, of himself, that his own happiness will be the more
[PART I] [1387] secure, the happier Dounia is with him. And as for some defects of
[PART I] [1388] character, for some habits and even certain differences of opinion
[PART I] [1397] course of conversation, he declared that before making Dounia's
[PART I] [1398] acquaintance, he had made up his mind to marry a girl of good
[PART I] [1405] obviously not said of design, but slipped out in the heat of
[PART I] [1409] and answered that 'words are not deeds,' and that, of course, is
[PART I] [1411] her mind, and, thinking that I was asleep, she got out of bed and

[PART I] [1422] be of the greatest use to you, in every way indeed, and Dounia and
[PART I] [1427] blessing. Dounia is dreaming of nothing else. We have even
[PART I] [1429] Petrovitch. He was cautious in his answer, and said that, of
[PART I] [1433] be doubt of your being fitted!) but then he expressed doubts
[PART I] [1436] thinking of nothing else now. She has been in a sort of fever for
[PART I] [1440] student of law. I am in complete agreement with her, Rodya, and
[PART I] [1442] probability of realising them. And in spite of Pyotr Petrovitch's
[PART I] [1446] upon. Of course we are careful not to talk of any of these more
[PART I] [1447] remote plans to Pyotr Petrovitch, especially of your becoming his
[PART I] [1450] I breathed a word to him of the great hopes we have of his helping
[PART I] [1451] us to pay for your university studies; we have not spoken of it in
[PART I] [1452] the first place, because it will come to pass of itself, later on,
[PART I] [1453] and he will no doubt without wasting words offer to do it of
[PART I] [1458] like this and I quite agree with her. And we have not spoken of
[PART I] [1462] that one could never judge of a man without seeing him close, for
[PART I] [1476] have a crust of bread of my own, and such children as you and
[PART I] [1478] most joyful piece of news, dear Rodya, I have kept for the end of
[PART I] [1481] after a separation of almost three years! It is settled /for
[PART I] [1487] before the fast of Our Lady, if it could be managed, or if that is
[PART I] [1490] joyful thought of seeing you, she said one day in joke that she
[PART I] [1501] roubles on the security of my pension, so that perhaps I shall be
[PART I] [1504] though Pyotr Petrovitch has been so kind as to undertake part of
[PART I] [1505] the expenses of the journey, that is to say, he has taken upon
[PART I] [1506] himself the conveyance of our bags and big trunk (which will be
[PART I] [1507] conveyed through some acquaintances of his), we must reckon upon
[PART I] [1524] Rodya, and believe in the mercy of our Creator and our Redeemer? I
[PART I] [1526] spirit of infidelity that is abroad to-day; If it is so, I pray
[PART I] [1545] dread of meeting anyone; he had forgotten his dread. He turned in the
[PART I] [1546] direction of the Vassilyevsky Ostrov, walking along Vassilyevsky
[PART I] [1549] to himself, to the astonishment of the passers-by. Many of them took
[PART I] [1562] of his decision. "No, mother, no, Dounia, you won't deceive me! and
[PART I] [1570] your prayers were like before the Holy Mother of Kazan who stands in
[PART I] [1575] holds two government posts and who shares the ideas of our most rising
[PART I] [1582] the idea of prepossessing me in favour of Mr. Luzhin? Oh, the
[PART I] [1583] cunning of them! I should like to know one thing more: how far they
[PART I] [1587] speak of it aloud, and better not to speak of it. Most likely it was
[PART I] [1604] Luzhin. The chief thing is he is 'a man of business and /seems/ kind,'
[PART I] [1613] be sure it's a matter of business, a partnership for mutual benefit,
[PART I] [1615] your tobacco. The business man has got the better of them, too. The
[PART I] [1621] meanness, but the /tone/ of the whole thing. For that will be the tone
[PART I] [1622] after marriage, it's a foretaste of it. And mother too, why should she

[PART I] [1631] and twenty roubles of pension when Afanasy Ivanovitch's debt is paid?
[PART I] [1635] the time on Mr. Luzhin's generosity; 'he will offer it of himself, he
[PART I] [1640] of the other side of the picture, yet they won't face the truth till
[PART I] [1641] they are forced to; the very thought of it makes them shiver; they
[PART I] [1644] like to know whether Mr. Luzhin has any orders of merit; I bet he has
[PART I] [1647] wedding, too! Enough of him, confound him!
[PART I] [1654] and a half years I have been thinking about it, thinking of just that,
[PART I] [1656] Mr. Svidrigalov and all the rest of it, she certainly can put up with
[PART I] [1658] that she can put up with Mr. Luzhin, who propounds the theory of the
[PART I] [1659] superiority of wives raised from destitution and owing everything to
[PART I] [1664] man, of course, but she will have to live with the man. Why! she'd
[PART I] [1668] not that sort when I knew her and . . . she is still the same, of
[PART I] [1675] advantage. And if Mr. Luzhin had been of unalloyed gold, or one huge
[PART I] [1677] Why is she consenting then? What's the point of it? What's the answer?
[PART I] [1698] taken the measure of your sacrifice, both of you? Is it right? Can you
[PART I] [1701] be no question of love,' mother writes. And what if there can be no
[PART I] [1708] question of starvation. It has to be paid for, it has to be paid for,
[PART I] [1733] have become of your sister in ten years? What may happen to her during
[PART I] [1737] finding a kind of enjoyment in it. And yet all these questions were
[PART I] [1742] had taken the form of a fearful, frenzied and fantastic question,
[PART I] [1764] suddenly became aware of this himself. . . . He felt a hammering in
[PART I] [1769] Boulevard. There was a seat about a hundred paces in front of him. He
[PART I] [1772] seat, he had noticed a woman walking some twenty paces in front of
[PART I] [1773] him, but at first he took no more notice of her than of other objects
[PART I] [1777] about the woman in front of him, that gradually his attention was
[PART I] [1783] about in an absurd way. She had on a dress of some light silky
[PART I] [1785] open at the top of the skirt, close to the waist: a great piece was
[PART I] [1791] let her head sink on the back of the seat and closed her eyes,
[PART I] [1795] him the face of a quite young, fair-haired girl--sixteen, perhaps not
[PART I] [1799] indecorously, and showed every sign of being unconscious that she was
[PART I] [1805] quite deserted. And yet on the further side of the boulevard, about
[PART I] [1806] fifteen paces away, a gentleman was standing on the edge of the
[PART I] [1808] with some object of his own. He, too, had probably seen her in the
[PART I] [1857] not knowing what she is doing, and now he is very eager to get hold of
[PART I] [1862] pretending to make a cigarette. . . . Think how can we keep her out of
[PART I] [1896] "I tell you she was walking in front of me, staggering, just here, in
[PART I] [1910] "The chief thing is," Raskolnikov persisted, "to keep her out of this
[PART I] [1915] and seemed about to fly into a rage again, but thought better of it,
[PART I] [1919] "Keep her out of his hands we can," said the constable thoughtfully,
[PART I] [1923] She opened her eyes fully all of a sudden, looked at him intently, as
[PART I] [1936] complete revulsion of feeling came over him.
[PART I] [1948] "Well!" ejaculated the policeman, with a gesture of contempt, and he
[PART I] [1959] In spite of those strange words he felt very wretched. He sat down on
[PART I] [1968] then maybe, turn her out of doors. . . . And even if she does not, the
[PART I] [1969] Darya Frantsovnas will get wind of it, and the girl will soon be
[PART I] [1971] hospital directly (that's always the luck of those girls with
[PART I] [1983] maybe we might feel more uneasy. . . . But what if Dounia were one of
[PART I] [1984] the percentage! Of another one if not that one?
[PART I] [1989] now I remember. What for, though? And what put the idea of going to
[PART I] [1992] He wondered at himself. Razumihin was one of his old comrades at the
[PART I] [1999] He was very poor, and there was a sort of haughty pride and reserve
[PART I] [2001] to some of his comrades to look down upon them all as children, as
[PART I] [2008] youth, good-natured to the point of simplicity, though both depth and
[PART I] [2009] dignity lay concealed under that simplicity. The better of his
[PART I] [2010] comrades understood this, and all were fond of him. He was extremely
[PART I] [2012] was of striking appearance--tall, thin, blackhaired and always badly
[PART I] [2013] shaved. He was sometimes uproarious and was reputed to be of great
[PART I] [2021] extremes of cold and hunger. He was very poor, and kept himself
[PART I] [2022] entirely on what he could earn by work of one sort or another. He knew
[PART I] [2023] of no end of resources by which to earn money. He spent one whole
[PART I] [2039] "Of course, I've been meaning lately to go to Razumihin's to ask for
[PART I] [2053] means of Razumihin alone?" he asked himself in perplexity.
[PART I] [2060] had reached a final determination. "I shall go to Razumihin's of
[PART I] [2070] but the thought of going home suddenly filled him with intense
[PART I] [2071] loathing; in that hole, in that awful little cupboard of his, all
[PART I] [2076] shivering; in spite of the heat he felt cold. With a kind of effort he
[PART I] [2085] to his weary eyes after the dust of the town and the huge houses that
[PART I] [2100] object he had taken the money out of his pocket. He recalled it on
[PART I] [2102] Going into the tavern he drank a glass of vodka and ate a pie of some
[PART I] [2110] In a morbid condition of the brain, dreams often have a singular
[PART I] [2111] actuality, vividness, and extraordinary semblance of reality. At times
[PART I] [2121] childhood in the little town of his birth. He was a child about seven
[PART I] [2122] years old, walking into the country with his father on the evening of
[PART I] [2127] a copse lay, a dark blur on the very edge of the horizon. A few paces
[PART I] [2129] always aroused in him a feeling of aversion, even of fear, when he
[PART I] [2135] of which was always black. It was a winding road, and about a hundred
[PART I] [2137] middle of the graveyard stood a stone church with a green cupola where
[PART I] [2139] mother, when a service was held in memory of his grandmother, who had
[PART I] [2142] of rice pudding with raisins stuck in it in the shape of a cross. He
[PART I] [2145] marked by a stone, was the little grave of his younger brother who had
[PART I] [2153] some kind of festivity going on, there were crowds of gaily dressed
[PART I] [2154] townspeople, peasant women, their husbands, and riff-raff of all
[PART I] [2155] sorts, all singing and all more or less drunk. Near the entrance of
[PART I] [2156] the tavern stood a cart, but a strange cart. It was one of those big
[PART I] [2157] carts usually drawn by heavy cart-horses and laden with casks of wine
[PART I] [2160] along a perfect mountain with no appearance of effort, as though it
[PART I] [2162] say, in the shafts of such a cart he saw a thin little sorrel beast,
[PART I] [2163] one of those peasants' nags which he had often seen straining their
[PART I] [2164] utmost under a heavy load of wood or hay, especially when the wheels
[PART I] [2168] take him away from the window. All of a sudden there was a great
[PART I] [2169] uproar of shouting, singing and the balalaka, and from the tavern a
[PART I] [2170] number of big and very drunken peasants came out, wearing red and blue
[PART I] [2173] "Get in, get in!" shouted one of them, a young thick-necked peasant
[PART I] [2176] But at once there was an outbreak of laughter and exclamations in the
[PART I] [2200] "Don't you mind her, mates, bring a whip each of you, get ready!"
[PART I] [2209] they help laughing? That wretched nag was to drag all the cartload of
[PART I] [2211] whips ready to help Mikolka. With the cry of "now," the mare tugged
[PART I] [2214] blows of the three whips which were showered upon her like hail. The
[PART I] [2247] of you! Get in, all of you! I will have her go at a gallop! . . ."
[PART I] [2250] mare, roused by the shower of blows, began feebly kicking. Even the
[PART I] [2251] old man could not help smiling. To think of a wretched little beast
[PART I] [2263] . . . He ran beside the mare, ran in front of her, saw her being
[PART I] [2265] choking, his tears were streaming. One of the men gave him a cut with
[PART I] [2274] the whip, bent forward and picked up from the bottom of the cart a
[PART I] [2275] long, thick shaft, he took hold of one end with both hands and with an
[PART I] [2281] swinging blow. There was a sound of a heavy thud.
[PART I] [2287] the spine of the luckless mare. She sank back on her haunches, but
[PART I] [2297] "She'll fall in a minute, mates, there will soon be an end of her,"
[PART I] [2309] "Finish her off," shouted Mikolka and he leapt beside himself, out of
[PART I] [2332] and carried him out of the crowd.
[PART I] [2368] vile . . . the very thought of it made me feel sick and filled me with
[PART I] [2382] was a sense of relief and peace in his soul. "Lord," he prayed, "show
[PART I] [2383] me my path--I renounce that accursed . . . dream of mine."
[PART I] [2386] glowing red sun setting in the glowing sky. In spite of his weakness
[PART I] [2387] he was not conscious of fatigue. It was as though an abscess that had
[PART I] [2396] predestined turning-point of his fate. He could never understand and
[PART I] [2400] need to go. It was obviously and quite unnecessarily out of his way,
[PART I] [2401] though not much so. It is true that it happened to him dozens of times
[PART I] [2406] at the very hour, the very minute of his life when he was just in
[PART I] [2415] and costermongers of all kinds were crowding round the taverns in the
[PART I] [2416] dirty and stinking courtyards of the Hay Market. Raskolnikov
[PART I] [2420] scandalising people. At the corner of an alley a huckster and his wife
[PART I] [2424] Ivanovna, or, as everyone called her, Lizaveta, the younger sister of
[PART I] [2428] a single woman of about thirty-five, tall, clumsy, timid, submissive
[PART I] [2430] trembling of her sister, who made her work day and night, and even
[PART I] [2432] wife, listening earnestly and doubtfully. They were talking of
[PART I] [2433] something with special warmth. The moment Raskolnikov caught sight of
[PART I] [2434] her, he was overcome by a strange sensation as it were of intense
[PART I] [2444] "Upon my word, what a fright you are in of Alyona Ivanovna," gabbled
[PART I] [2459] "And we'll have a cup of tea," added his wife.
[PART I] [2466] by a thrill of horror, like a shiver running down his spine. He had
[PART I] [2473] condemned to death. He thought of nothing and was incapable of
[PART I] [2475] freedom of thought, no will, and that everything was suddenly and
[PART I] [2479] he could not reckon on a more certain step towards the success of the
[PART I] [2501] But Raskolnikov had become superstitious of late. The traces of
[PART I] [2504] strange and mysterious, as it were, the presence of some peculiar
[PART I] [2507] to give him the address of Alyona Ivanovna, the old pawnbroker, in
[PART I] [2522] had played a game of billiards and began drinking tea. All at once he
[PART I] [2524] Ivanovna and give him her address. This of itself seemed strange to
[PART I] [2526] name. Of course it was a chance, but he could not shake off a very
[PART I] [2533] and she is not above taking a pledge for a rouble. Lots of our fellows
[PART I] [2538] gave a quarter of the value of an article and took five and even seven
[PART I] [2551] being the child of a different mother. She was thirty-five. She worked
[PART I] [2554] all she earned. She did not dare to accept an order or job of any kind
[PART I] [2556] will, and Lizaveta knew of it, and by this will she would not get a
[PART I] [2558] was left to a monastery in the province of N----, that prayers might
[PART I] [2559] be said for her in perpetuity. Lizaveta was of lower rank than her
[PART I] [2570] and eyes. Strikingly so. And the proof of it is that lots of people
[PART I] [2583] hotly. "I was joking of course, but look here; on one side we have a
[PART I] [2593] for want of help and by thousands, on every side! A hundred thousand
[PART I] [2596] set on the right path; dozens of families saved from destitution, from
[PART I] [2598] her, take her money and with the help of it devote oneself to the
[PART I] [2599] service of humanity and the good of all. What do you think, would
[PART I] [2600] not one tiny crime be wiped out by thousands of good deeds? For one
[PART I] [2603] value has the life of that sickly, stupid, ill-natured old woman in
[PART I] [2604] the balance of existence! No more than the life of a louse, of a
[PART I] [2606] wearing out the lives of others; the other day she bit Lizaveta's
[PART I] [2607] finger out of spite; it almost had to be amputated."
[PART I] [2609] "Of course she does not deserve to live," remarked the officer, "but
[PART I] [2613] for that, we should drown in an ocean of prejudice. But for that,
[PART I] [2614] there would never have been a single great man. They talk of duty,
[PART I] [2626] "Of course not! I was only arguing the justice of it. . . . It's
[PART I] [2632] Raskolnikov was violently agitated. Of course, it was all ordinary
[PART I] [2637] at the moment when he had brought away the embryo of his idea from the
[PART I] [2650] time. At last he was conscious of his former fever and shivering, and
[PART I] [2688] "You'd better go out and get a breath of air," she said after a pause.
[PART I] [2707] he fancied that he was in Africa, in Egypt, in some sort of oasis. The
[PART I] [2715] his head, looked out of the window, and seeing how late it was,
[PART I] [2725] concentrated all his energies on thinking of everything and forgetting
[PART I] [2728] overcoat--a work of a moment. He rummaged under his pillow and picked
[PART I] [2730] shirt. From its rags he tore a long strip, a couple of inches wide and
[PART I] [2732] wide, strong summer overcoat of some stout cotton material (his only
[PART I] [2733] outer garment) and began sewing the two ends of the rag on the inside,
[PART I] [2737] on his table in a piece of paper. As for the noose, it was a very
[PART I] [2738] ingenious device of his own; the noose was intended for the axe. It
[PART I] [2742] put the head of the axe in the noose, and it would hang quietly under
[PART I] [2744] hold the end of the handle all the way, so that it did not swing; and
[PART I] [2752] there. This pledge was, however, only a smoothly planed piece of wood
[PART I] [2753] the size and thickness of a silver cigarette case. He picked up this
[PART I] [2754] piece of wood in one of his wanderings in a courtyard where there was
[PART I] [2755] some sort of a workshop. Afterwards he had added to the wood a thin
[PART I] [2756] smooth piece of iron, which he had also picked up at the same time in
[PART I] [2758] piece of wood, he fastened them very firmly, crossing and re-crossing
[PART I] [2761] difficult to untie it. This was in order to divert the attention of
[PART I] [2765] of wood. All this had been stored by him beforehand under the sofa. He
[PART I] [2782] more absurd they at once became in his eyes. In spite of all his
[PART I] [2784] could believe in the carrying out of his plans.
[PART I] [2788] uncertainty of any kind had remained, he would, it seems, have
[PART I] [2790] whole mass of unsettled points and uncertainties remained. As for
[PART I] [2792] nothing could be easier. Nastasya was continually out of the house,
[PART I] [2799] it back, and Nastasya had come back and was on the spot. He would of
[PART I] [2805] and indeed he had no time. He was thinking of the chief point, and put
[PART I] [2810] (i.e. his visit with the object of a final survey of the place) was
[PART I] [2826] impossibility of concealing the crime, as in the criminal himself.
[PART I] [2827] Almost every criminal is subject to a failure of will and reasoning
[PART I] [2830] that this eclipse of reason and failure of will power attacked a man
[PART I] [2832] before the perpetration of the crime, continued with equal violence at
[PART I] [2833] the moment of the crime and for longer or shorter time after,
[PART I] [2837] by something of the nature of disease, he did not yet feel able to
[PART I] [2842] would remain unimpaired at the time of carrying out his design, for
[PART I] [2844] omit all the process by means of which he arrived at this last
[PART I] [2846] that the practical, purely material difficulties of the affair
[PART I] [2850] minutest details of the business. . . ." But this preparation had
[PART I] [2857] of which was open as usual, he glanced cautiously in to see whether,
[PART I] [2862] was occupied there, taking linen out of a basket and hanging it on a
[PART I] [2865] and walked past as though he noticed nothing. But it was the end of
[PART I] [2886] between two chunks of wood; at once, before going out, he made it fast
[PART I] [2887] in the noose, he thrust both hands into his pockets and went out of
[PART I] [2895] as possible. Suddenly he thought of his hat. "Good heavens! I had the
[PART I] [2897] A curse rose from the bottom of his soul.
[PART I] [2899] Glancing out of the corner of his eye into a shop, he saw by a clock

[PART I] [2909] great fountains, and of their refreshing effect on the atmosphere in

[PART I] [2912] to the garden of the Mihailovsky Palace, it would be a splendid thing
[PART I] [2915] necessity, but in some peculiar way inclined to live in those parts of
[PART I] [2917] dirt and smell and all sorts of nastiness. Then his own walks through
[PART I] [2919] reality. "What nonsense!" he thought, "better think of nothing at
[PART I] [2930] moment, as though expressly for his benefit, a huge waggon of hay had

[PART I] [2953] torn off--they had gone away! . . . He was out of breath. For one
[PART I] [2968] No answer. To go on ringing was useless and out of place. The old
[PART I] [2969] woman was, of course, at home, but she was suspicious and alone. He
[PART I] [2970] had some knowledge of her habits . . . and once more he put his ear to
[PART I] [2973] he suddenly heard something like the cautious touch of a hand on the
[PART I] [2974] lock and the rustle of a skirt at the very door. Someone was standing
[PART I] [2978] he might not have the appearance of hiding, then rang a third time,
[PART I] [2982] were clouded at moments and he was almost unconscious of his body.
[PART I] [2990] suspicious eyes stared at him out of the darkness. Then Raskolnikov
[PART I] [2994] not hoping that the sight of him would disarm her suspicions, he took
[PART I] [2995] hold of the door and drew it towards him to prevent the old woman from
[PART I] [3018] in the eyes of her uninvited visitor. She looked intently, maliciously
[PART I] [3029] He had not even thought of saying this, but it was suddenly said of
[PART I] [3033] "But why, my good sir, all of a minute. . . . What is it?" she asked,
[PART I] [3036] "The silver cigarette case; I spoke of it last time, you know."
[PART I] [3058] (all her windows were shut, in spite of the stifling heat), she left
[PART I] [3070] it with both arms, scarcely conscious of himself, and almost without
[PART I] [3077] and fastened by a broken horn comb which stood out on the nape of her
[PART I] [3078] neck. As she was so short, the blow fell on the very top of her skull.
[PART I] [3079] She cried out, but very faintly, and suddenly sank all of a heap on
[PART I] [3085] starting out of their sockets, the brow and the whole face were drawn
[PART I] [3091] full possession of his faculties, free from confusion or giddiness,
[PART I] [3096] the bedroom with them. It was a very small room with a whole shrine of
[PART I] [3099] chest of drawers. Strange to say, so soon as he began to fit the keys
[PART I] [3112] there was a perfect pool of blood. All at once he noticed a string on
[PART I] [3115] the front of the dress, but something held it and prevented its
[PART I] [3121] two crosses, one of Cyprus wood and one of copper, and an image in
[PART I] [3134] there with the small keys could not possibly belong to the chest of
[PART I] [3137] chest of drawers, and at once felt under the bedstead, knowing that
[PART I] [3142] sheet, was a coat of red brocade lined with hareskin; under it was a
[PART I] [3147] suddenly came to himself. "Good God, am I going out of my senses?" he
[PART I] [3152] out to be various articles made of gold among the clothes--probably
[PART I] [3156] with tape. Without any delay, he began filling up the pockets of his
[PART I] [3166] ran out of the bedroom.
[PART I] [3168] In the middle of the room stood Lizaveta with a big bundle in her
[PART I] [3171] run out of the bedroom, she began faintly quivering all over, like a
[PART I] [3178] what frightens them and are on the point of screaming. And this
[PART I] [3185] at one blow all the top of the head. She fell heavily at once.
[PART I] [3191] as fast as possible. And if at that moment he had been capable of
[PART I] [3193] all the difficulties of his position, the hopelessness, the
[PART I] [3194] hideousness and the absurdity of it, if he could have understood how
[PART I] [3196] commit, to get out of that place and to make his way home, it is very
[PART I] [3199] loathing of what he had done. The feeling of loathing especially
[PART I] [3203] But a sort of blankness, even dreaminess, had begun by degrees to take
[PART I] [3204] possession of him; at moments he forgot himself, or rather, forgot
[PART I] [3205] what was of importance, and caught at trifles. Glancing, however, into
[PART I] [3206] the kitchen and seeing a bucket half full of water on a bench, he
[PART I] [3207] bethought him of washing his hands and the axe. His hands were sticky
[PART I] [3209] piece of soap that lay in a broken saucer on the window, and began
[PART I] [3212] washing the wood where there were spots of blood rubbing them with
[PART I] [3222] overlooking. He stood in the middle of the room, lost in thought. Dark
[PART I] [3224] that moment he was incapable of reasoning, of protecting himself, that
[PART I] [3227] rushed into the entry. But here a shock of terror awaited him such as
[PART I] [3257] The steps sounded very far off, at the very bottom of the stairs, but
[PART I] [3280] indeed. The visitor took hold of the bell and rang it loudly.
[PART I] [3282] As soon as the tin bell tinkled, Raskolnikov seemed to be aware of
[PART I] [3285] violently and impatiently at the handle of the door. Raskolnikov gazed
[PART I] [3289] tempted to hold the fastening, but /he/ might be aware of it. A
[PART I] [3299] bell. He must certainly be a man of authority and an intimate
[PART I] [3328] "We must give it up, of course, but what did she fix this time for?
[PART I] [3329] The old witch fixed the time for me to come herself. It's out of my
[PART I] [3332] and yet here all of a sudden she is out for a walk!"
[PART I] [3357] "Why, don't you see? That proves that one of them is at home. If they
[PART I] [3399] Raskolnikov stood keeping tight hold of the axe. He was in a sort of
[PART I] [3426] Somebody dashed out of a flat below, shouting, and rather fell than
[PART I] [3427] ran down the stairs, bawling at the top of his voice.
[PART I] [3433] began noisily mounting the stairs. There were three or four of them.
[PART I] [3434] He distinguished the ringing voice of the young man. "They!"
[PART I] [3444] just been painted, in the middle of the room stood a pail and a broken
[PART I] [3446] open door and hidden behind the wall and only in the nick of time;
[PART I] [3469] less risky because there was a great crowd of people, and he was lost
[PART I] [3470] in it like a grain of sand. But all he had suffered had so weakened
[PART I] [3475] He was only dimly conscious of himself now, and the farther he went
[PART I] [3478] more conspicuous, and he had thought of turning back. Though he was
[PART I] [3482] He was not fully conscious when he passed through the gateway of his
[PART I] [3485] escape observation as far as possible in doing so. He was of course
[PART I] [3486] incapable of reflecting that it might perhaps be far better not to
[PART I] [3488] But it all happened fortunately, the door of the porter's room was
[PART I] [3490] was at home. But he had so completely lost all power of reflection
[PART I] [3495] chunk of wood as before. He met no one, not a soul, afterwards on the
[PART I] [3500] of thoughts were simply swarming in his brain, but he could not catch
[PART I] [3501] at one, he could not rest on one, in spite of all his efforts. . . .
[PART II] [3520] "Ah! the drunken men are coming out of the taverns," he thought, "it's
[PART II] [3551] some thick drops of congealed blood were clinging to the frayed edge
[PART II] [3552] of his trousers. He picked up a big claspknife and cut off the frayed
[PART II] [3556] of the old woman's box were still in his pockets! He had not thought
[PART II] [3557] till then of taking them out and hiding them! He had not even thought
[PART II] [3558] of them while he was examining his clothes! What next? Instantly he
[PART II] [3562] paper had come off the bottom of the wall and hung there in tatters.
[PART II] [3564] "They're in! All out of sight, and the purse too!" he thought
[PART II] [3570] He had not reckoned on having trinkets to hide. He had only thought of
[PART II] [3573] "But now, now, what am I glad of?" he thought, "Is that hiding things?
[PART II] [3577] another unbearable fit of shivering. Mechanically he drew from a chair
[PART II] [3587] Such a piece of evidence!"
[PART II] [3592] "Pieces of torn linen couldn't rouse suspicion, whatever happened; I
[PART II] [3594] of the room, and with painful concentration he fell to gazing about
[PART II] [3597] memory, and the simplest power of reflection were failing him, began
[PART II] [3604] floor in the middle of the room, where anyone coming in would see
[PART II] [3618] traces, stains on the lining of the pocket!
[PART II] [3621] and memory, since I guessed it of myself," he thought triumphantly,
[PART II] [3622] with a deep sigh of relief; "it's simply the weakness of fever, a
[PART II] [3623] moment's delirium," and he tore the whole lining out of the left
[PART II] [3624] pocket of his trousers. At that instant the sunlight fell on his left
[PART II] [3626] traces! He flung off his boots; "traces indeed! The tip of the sock
[PART II] [3631] He gathered them all up in his hands and stood in the middle of the
[PART II] [3634] "In the stove? But they would ransack the stove first of all. Burn
[PART II] [3645] it may be out of sight and done with, at once, at once!" Several times
[PART II] [3659] He jumped up and sat on the sofa. The beating of his heart was a
[PART II] [3682] "A summons to the police office, of course. You know which office."

[PART II] [3707] has got hold of a treasure . . ."
[PART II] [3712] intently upon her. Far as he was from being capable of rational
[PART II] [3734] thank God!" Then with a tremor he broke the seal of the notice and
[PART II] [3737] that day at half-past nine at the office of the district
[PART II] [3745] --not at the idea of prayer, but at himself.
[PART II] [3755] "That's all conventional, that's all relative, merely a way of looking
[PART II] [3756] at it," he thought in a flash, but only on the top surface of his
[PART II] [3765] mused, as he went out on to the stairs--"the worst of it is I'm almost
[PART II] [3771] possessed by such despair, such cynicism of misery, if one may so call
[PART II] [3772] it, that with a wave of his hand he went on. "Only to get it over!"
[PART II] [3774] In the street the heat was insufferable again; not a drop of rain had
[PART II] [3778] so that it hurt him to look out of them, and he felt his head going
[PART II] [3782] When he reached the turning into /the/ street, in an agony of
[PART II] [3789] The police-station was about a quarter of a mile off. It had lately
[PART II] [3790] been moved to new rooms on the fourth floor of a new house. He had
[PART II] [3792] the gateway, he saw on the right a flight of stairs which a peasant
[PART II] [3795] chance. He did not want to ask questions of anyone.
[PART II] [3801] kitchens of the flats opened on to the stairs and stood open almost
[PART II] [3804] their arms, policemen, and persons of all sorts and both sexes. The
[PART II] [3805] door of the office, too, stood wide open. Peasants stood waiting
[PART II] [3807] smell of fresh paint and stale oil from the newly decorated rooms.
[PART II] [3813] queer-looking set. He went up to one of them.
[PART II] [3824] particularly unkempt person with the look of a fixed idea in his eye.
[PART II] [3826] "There would be no getting anything out of him, because he has no
[PART II] [3833] packed full of people, rather better dressed than in the outer rooms.
[PART II] [3853] He was conscious of a terrible inner turmoil. He was afraid of losing
[PART II] [3862] and wore a number of rings on his well-scrubbed fingers and a gold
[PART II] [3863] chain on his waistcoat. He said a couple of words in French to a

[PART II] [3874] half the room and smelling so strongly of scent; and though her smile

[PART II] [3881] her seat on seeing him, and fell to curtsying in a sort of ecstasy;
[PART II] [3882] but the officer took not the smallest notice of her, and she did not

[PART II] [3888] of his humiliating position, his bearing was by no means in keeping

[PART II] [3897] "For the recovery of money due, from /the student/," the head clerk

[PART II] [3928] to all of us."

[PART II] [3946] "It is for the recovery of money on an I O U, a writ. You must either

[PART II] [3971] himself, but all mechanically. The triumphant sense of security, of
[PART II] [3975] questioning. It was an instant of full, direct, purely instinctive

[PART II] [3991] The paper fell out of Raskolnikov's hands, and he looked wildly at the
[PART II] [4002] storm. But, strange to say, the more numerous and violent the terms of
[PART II] [4005] curtsied incessantly, waiting impatiently for a chance of putting in
[PART II] [4008] "There was no sort of noise or fighting in my house, Mr. Captain," she
[PART II] [4010] confidently, though with a strong German accent, "and no sort of
[PART II] [4024] window, squealing like a little pig; it was a disgrace. The idea of

[PART II] [4133] unnecessary. But a year ago, the girl died of typhus. I remained

[PART II] [4169] of his sentimental effusions before Ilya Petrovitch, nor the meanness
[PART II] [4170] of the latter's triumph over him that had caused this sudden revulsion
[PART II] [4177] of sensation that he could never more appeal to these people in the
[PART II] [4180] sisters and not police-officers, it would have been utterly out of the
[PART II] [4181] question to appeal to them in any circumstance of life. He had never
[PART II] [4184] sensation, the most agonising of all the sensations he had known in
[PART II] [4187] The head clerk began dictating to him the usual form of declaration,
[PART II] [4200] Raskolnikov gave back the pen; but instead of getting up and going
[PART II] [4218] asked the porters to direct him, in the presence of the friends. Now,
[PART II] [4261] he, too, was looking through papers. He had, of course, come to look
[PART II] [4301] Raskolnikov went out. He caught the sound of eager conversation on his
[PART II] [4302] departure, and above the rest rose the questioning voice of Nikodim
[PART II] [4323] in all: two little boxes with ear-rings or something of the sort, he
[PART II] [4327] different pockets of his overcoat, and the remaining pocket of his
[PART II] [4329] purse, too. Then he went out of his room, leaving the door open. He
[PART II] [4331] his senses about him. He was afraid of pursuit, he was afraid that in
[PART II] [4332] another half-hour, another quarter of an hour perhaps, instructions
[PART II] [4340] in the night of his delirium when several times he had had the impulse
[PART II] [4341] to get up and go away, to make haste, and get rid of it all. But to
[PART II] [4342] get rid of it, turned out to be a very difficult task. He wandered
[PART II] [4343] along the bank of the Ekaterininsky Canal for half an hour or more and
[PART II] [4345] could not think of carrying out his plan; either rafts stood at the
[PART II] [4350] into the water. And what if the boxes were to float instead of
[PART II] [4351] sinking? And of course they would. Even as it was, everyone he met
[PART II] [4359] hour, worried and anxious in this dangerous past without thinking of
[PART II] [4361] simply because he had thought of it in delirium! He had become
[PART II] [4362] extremely absent and forgetful and he was aware of it. He certainly
[PART II] [4369] perhaps?" And though he felt incapable of clear judgment, the idea
[PART II] [4371] coming out of V---- Prospect towards the square, he saw on the left a
[PART II] [4373] hand, the blank unwhitewashed wall of a four-storied house stretched
[PART II] [4376] left. Here was a deserted fenced-off place where rubbish of different
[PART II] [4377] sorts was lying. At the end of the court, the corner of a low, smutty,
[PART II] [4378] stone shed, apparently part of some workshop, peeped from behind the
[PART II] [4391] big unhewn stone, weighing perhaps sixty pounds. The other side of the
[PART II] [4395] of haste.
[PART II] [4397] He bent down over the stone, seized the top of it firmly in both
[PART II] [4408] police-office. "I have buried my tracks! And who, who can think of
[PART II] [4411] were found, who would think of me? It is all over! No clue!" And he
[PART II] [4427] "Damn it all!" he thought suddenly, in a fit of ungovernable fury. "If
[PART II] [4451] the jewel-cases out of it. . . . Yes, so it was.
[PART II] [4457] But what if I don't get well at all? Good God, how sick I am of it
[PART II] [4464] everything surrounding him, an obstinate, malignant feeling of hatred.
[PART II] [4469] He stopped suddenly, on coming out on the bank of the Little Neva,
[PART II] [4471] house," he thought, "why, I have not come to Razumihin of my own
[PART II] [4508] face to face. Now, in a flash, he knew, that what he was least of all
[PART II] [4531] that, but there's a bookseller, Heruvimov--and he takes the place of a
[PART II] [4533] publishing of a kind, and issuing natural science manuals and what a
[PART II] [4537] has an inkling of anything, but, of course, I encourage him. Here are
[PART II] [4538] two signatures of the German text--in my opinion, the crudest
[PART II] [4540] And, of course, triumphantly proves that she is. Heruvimov is going to
[PART II] [4547] to begin a translation about whales, and then some of the dullest
[PART II] [4548] scandals out of the second part of /Les Confessions/ we have marked
[PART II] [4550] of Radishchev. You may be sure I don't contradict him, hang him! Well,
[PART II] [4551] would you like to do the second signature of '/Is woman a human
[PART II] [4593] walking in the very middle of the bridge in the traffic). He angrily
[PART II] [4594] clenched and ground his teeth. He heard laughter, of course.
[PART II] [4613] He took it and they passed on. It was a piece of twenty copecks. From
[PART II] [4615] asking alms in the streets, and the gift of the twenty copecks he
[PART II] [4621] in the Neva. The cupola of the cathedral, which is seen at its best
[PART II] [4628] attending the university, he had hundreds of times--generally on his
[PART II] [4634] finding the explanation of it. He vividly recalled those old doubts
[PART II] [4641] hidden far away out of sight all that seemed to him now--all his old
[PART II] [4646] became aware of the piece of money in his fist. He opened his hand,
[PART II] [4647] stared at the coin, and with a sweep of his arm flung it into the
[PART II] [4664] he caught the voice of his landlady. She was howling, shrieking and
[PART II] [4668] voice of her assailant was so horrible from spite and rage that it was

[PART II] [4692] There must have been numbers of them--almost all the inmates of the
[PART II] [4698] of infinite terror as he had never experienced before. Suddenly a
[PART II] [4700] a plate of soup. Looking at him carefully and ascertaining that he was
[PART II] [4749] She went downstairs and returned with a white earthenware jug of
[PART II] [4750] water. He remembered only swallowing one sip of the cold water and
[PART II] [4760] as though there were a number of people round him; they wanted to take
[PART II] [4761] him away somewhere, there was a great deal of squabbling and
[PART II] [4763] gone away afraid of him, and only now and then opened the door a crack
[PART II] [4769] month; at other times it all seemed part of the same day. But of
[PART II] [4770] /that/--of /that/ he had no recollection, and yet every minute he felt
[PART II] [4779] into the room at that hour, throwing a streak of light on the right
[PART II] [4794] discussions. She was a woman of forty, not at all bad-looking, fat and
[PART II] [4818] "Please sit down." Razumihin seated himself on the other side of the
[PART II] [4824] your head. Some nervous nonsense, the result of bad feeding, he says
[PART II] [4838] "Yes, indeed, sir, he is of more weight than I am."
[PART II] [4842] "At your mamma's request, through Afanasy Ivanovitch Vahrushin, of
[PART II] [4854] Well, it's always pleasant to hear words of wisdom."
[PART II] [4857] request of your mamma, who has sent you a remittance once before in
[PART II] [4860] thirty-five roubles in the hope of better to come."

[PART II] [4894] "No, no. Why should we trouble you? You are a man of judgment. . . .
[PART II] [4909] "Some of yesterday's," answered Nastasya, who was still standing
[PART II] [4925] In a couple of minutes Nastasya returned with the soup, and announced
[PART II] [4931] us up a couple of bottles of beer. We could empty them."
[PART II] [4939] and with his right hand gave him a spoonful of soup, blowing on it
[PART II] [4942] third. But after giving him a few more spoonfuls of soup, Razumihin
[PART II] [4946] Nastasya came in with two bottles of beer.
[PART II] [4954] chair, pulled the soup and meat in front of him, and began eating as
[PART II] [4958] mumbled with his mouth full of beef, "and it's all Pashenka, your dear
[PART II] [4960] don't ask for it, but, of course, I don't object. And here's Nastasya
[PART II] [4966] "A cup of tea, then?"
[PART II] [4968] "A cup of tea, maybe."
[PART II] [4980] some queer, almost animal, cunning he conceived the idea of hiding his
[PART II] [4982] yet in full possession of his faculties, and meanwhile listening to
[PART II] [4983] find out what was going on. Yet he could not overcome his sense of
[PART II] [4984] repugnance. After sipping a dozen spoonfuls of tea, he suddenly
[PART II] [4987] down pillows in clean cases, he observed that, too, and took note of
[PART II] [4996] through a lump of sugar.
[PART II] [4998] "She'll get it at the shop, my dear. You see, Rodya, all sorts of

[PART II] [5065] her intellectually, simply from the metaphysical point of view; there
[PART II] [5066] is a sort of symbolism sprung up between us, a sort of algebra or what
[PART II] [5072] get rid of you. And she's been cherishing that design a long time, but

[PART II] [5155] account of them in an hour or two. I will let Zossimov know at the

[PART II] [5272] cap?" he said, taking out of the bundle a fairly good though cheap and
[PART II] [5281] recommendation in its own way. Tolstyakov, a friend of mine, is always

[PART II] [5875] than ever, and at last he showed unmistakable signs of embarrassment.
[PART II] [5894] had a look at him. I am a comrade of Rodya's, like him, formerly a
[PART II] [5895] student, and now I am nursing him; so don't you take any notice of us,

[PART II] [5949] gloves, real Louvain, told the same tale, if only from the fact of his
[PART II] [5952] charming summer jacket of a fawn shade, light thin trousers, a
[PART II] [5953] waistcoat of the same, new and fine linen, a cravat of the lightest
[PART II] [5954] cambric with pink stripes on it, and the best of it was, this all
[PART II] [5969] notice of their oddities.

[PART II] [6171] five years, not to speak of the cases of robbery and arson everywhere,

[PART II] [6272] avoid crushing it as he stooped to go out of the door. And even the
[PART II] [6273] curve of his spine was expressive of the horrible insult he had

[PART II] [6361] about it, he did not even want to think of it. He drove away thought;
[PART II] [6366] From old habit he took his usual walk in the direction of the Hay
[PART II] [6368] the road in front of a little general shop and was grinding out a very
[PART II] [6369] sentimental song. He was accompanying a girl of fifteen, who stood on
[PART II] [6370] the pavement in front of him. She was dressed up in a crinoline, a

[PART II] [6394] Raskolnikov walked straight on and came out at the corner of the Hay
[PART II] [6402] "All sorts of people keep booths here," answered the young man,
[PART II] [6422] of peasants. He pushed his way into the thickest part of it, looking

[PART II] [6429] leading from the market-place to Sadovy Street. Of late he had often
[PART II] [6433] Now he walked along, thinking of nothing. At that point there is a
[PART II] [6434] great block of buildings, entirely let out in dram shops and eating-
[PART II] [6438] establishments in the lower storeys. From one of these a loud din,
[PART II] [6439] sounds of singing, the tinkling of a guitar and shouts of merriment,
[PART II] [6440] floated into the street. A crowd of women were thronging round the
[PART II] [6446] the road. Raskolnikov joined the throng of women, who were talking in
[PART II] [6448] goatskin shoes. There were women of forty and some not more than
[PART II] [6453] dancing frantically, marking time with his heels to the sounds of the
[PART II] [6454] guitar and of a thin falsetto voice singing a jaunty air. He listened

[PART II] [6468] "Won't you come in?" one of the women asked him. Her voice was still
[PART II] [6470] repulsive--the only one of the group.
[PART II] [6479] you just come out of a hospital?"
[PART II] [6509] "Well, that's too much," one of the women observed, shaking her head

[PART II] [6548] staircase, spontaneous combustion of a shopkeeper from alcohol, a fire
[PART II] [6568] turned to Zametov. There was a smile on his lips, and a new shade of
[PART II] [6590] "By way of a fee! You profit by everything!" Raskolnikov laughed,
[PART II] [6593] sport, as that workman of yours said when he was scuffling with
[PART II] [6594] Dmitri, in the case of the old woman. . . ."

[PART II] [6653] a whisper, bringing his face exceedingly close to the face of Zametov.

[PART II] [6673] extraordinary vividness of sensation a moment in the recent past, that
[PART II] [6686] Both were silent. After his sudden fit of laughter Raskolnikov became
[PART II] [6694] of bread in his mouth and, suddenly looking at Zametov, seemed to
[PART II] [6699] "There have been a great many of these crimes lately," said Zametov.
[PART II] [6700] "Only the other day I read in the /Moscow News/ that a whole gang of

[PART II] [6843] when I went out of the police-office? And why did the explosive

[PART II] [6856] He went out, trembling all over from a sort of wild hysterical
[PART II] [6857] sensation, in which there was an element of insufferable rapture. Yet
[PART II] [6869] Raskolnikov had hardly opened the door of the restaurant when he
[PART II] [6875] "So here you are!" he shouted at the top of his voice--"you ran away
[PART II] [6878] here he is after all. Rodya! What is the meaning of it? Tell me the

[PART II] [6971] he went into the house but stopped short of the stairs.
[PART II] [6975] just what Zossimov seemed afraid of." He struck his finger on his

[PART II] [6989] though on fire in the last rays of the setting sun, at the darkening
[PART II] [6990] water of the canal, and the water seemed to catch his attention. At
[PART II] [6994] uncanny and hideous sight. He became aware of someone standing on the
[PART II] [6995] right side of him; he looked and saw a tall woman with a kerchief on
[PART II] [7005] "A woman drowning! A woman drowning!" shouted dozens of voices; people
[PART II] [7012] "A boat, a boat" was shouted in the crowd. But there was no need of a
[PART II] [7015] her: she floated within a couple of yards from the steps, he caught
[PART II] [7016] hold of her clothes with his right hand and with his left seized a
[PART II] [7018] out at once. They laid her on the granite pavement of the embankment.
[PART II] [7023] "She's drunk herself out of her senses," the same woman's voice wailed
[PART II] [7024] at her side. "Out of her senses. The other day she tried to hang

[PART II] [7620] rags, death and despair. She, too, was in rags, her attire was all of

[PART II] [7845] to live in a square of space!
[PART II] [7861] he did not think of that.
[PART II] [7864] the idea struck him. "Well, that was . . . in case of emergency," he
[PART II] [7865] added and laughed himself at his boyish sally. He was in the best of

[PART II] [7874] entry, where two of the landlady's servants were busy behind a screen

[PART II] [7941] they such fools? I gave Zametov a bit of a thrashing at the time--
[PART II] [7943] you know of it; I've noticed he is a ticklish subject; it was at Luise

[PART II] [8000] level of the landlady's door, and they could, as a fact, see from

[PART II] [8032] beside themselves with alarm when they heard of his "running away"
[PART II] [8034] Heavens, what had become of him?" Both had been weeping, both had been
[PART II] [8037] A cry of joy, of ecstasy, greeted Raskolnikov's entrance. Both rushed

[PART III] [8071] to Razumihin to cut short the flow of warm and incoherent consolations
[PART III] [8088] "Don't torture me!" he said with a gesture of irritation.
[PART III] [8101] "Come, mamma, come out of the room at least for a minute," Dounia
[PART III] [8109] "No, Rodya, but he knows already of our arrival. We have heard, Rodya,
[PART III] [8121] what would come next. Both of them had heard of the quarrel from

[PART III] [8163] "But you're out of your mind! Despot!" roared Razumihin; but

[PART III] [8198] Raskolnikov home, he had indeed talked too freely, but he was aware of
[PART III] [8199] it himself, and his head was clear in spite of the vast quantities he

[PART III] [8217] confidence inspired by Nastasya's account of her brother's queer
[PART III] [8221] she was considerably reassured; it was characteristic of Razumihin
[PART III] [8223] so that people quickly saw the sort of man they had to deal with.
[PART III] [8231] quarter of an hour later, on my word of honour, I'll bring you news
[PART III] [8233] run home in a twinkling--I've a lot of friends there, all drunk--I'll

[PART III] [8243] So come home then! But the landlady is out of the question; it's all
[PART III] [8244] right for me, but it's out of the question for you: she wouldn't take
[PART III] [8246] account of Avdotya Romanovna and of you, too, if you want to know
[PART III] [8247] . . . of Avdotya Romanovna certainly. She is an absolutely, absolutely

[PART III] [8262] good-natured, was he capable of carrying out his promise? He seemed in
[PART III] [8271] notice: I am talking nonsense, I am not worthy of you. . . . I am
[PART III] [8272] utterly unworthy of you! The minute I've taken you home, I'll pour a
[PART III] [8273] couple of pailfuls of water over my head in the gutter here, and then

[PART III] [8367] I've been calling them all sorts of names just now, I do respect them
[PART III] [8374] Don't let anybody in. In a quarter of an hour I'll come back with
[PART III] [8400] forgiven him. "I am sure he will think better of it to-morrow," she
[PART III] [8404] Avdotya Romanovna said finally. And, of course, there was no going
[PART III] [8410] This walking up and down when she was thinking was a habit of Avdotya
[PART III] [8414] Razumihin, of course, was ridiculous in his sudden drunken infatuation

[PART III] [8456] great deal even of what was contrary to her convictions, but there was
[PART III] [8488] reserve and extreme seriousness of a young doctor at an important
[PART III] [8492] beauty of Avdotya Romanovna, he endeavoured not to notice her at all

[PART III] [8603] mustn't talk of love--she's bashful to hysterics--but just let her see
[PART III] [8611] other! I have often been reminded of you! . . . You'll come to it in
[PART III] [8614] attraction here--here you have the end of the world, an anchorage, a

[PART III] [8616] foundation of the world, the essence of pancakes, of savoury fish-
[PART III] [8617] pies, of the evening samovar, of soft sighs and warm shawls, and hot

[PART III] [8633] like that. He remembered every detail of the previous day and he knew
[PART III] [8638] positively ashamed of it, and he hastened to pass to the other more
[PART III] [8642] The most awful recollection of the previous day was the way he had
[PART III] [8644] because he had taken advantage of the young girl's position to abuse
[PART III] [8645] her /fianc/ in his stupid jealousy, knowing nothing of their mutual
[PART III] [8646] relations and obligations and next to nothing of the man himself. And
[PART III] [8651] he know the character of the lodgings? He was furnishing a flat . . .
[PART III] [8655] of his coarse and envious heart"! And would such a dream ever be
[PART III] [8657] drunken noisy braggart of last night? Was it possible to imagine so
[PART III] [8660] him of how he had said last night on the stairs that the landlady
[PART III] [8661] would be jealous of Avdotya Romanovna . . . that was simply
[PART III] [8663] hurt his hand and sent one of the bricks flying.
[PART III] [8665] "Of course," he muttered to himself a minute later with a feeling of
[PART III] [8666] self-abasement, "of course, all these infamies can never be wiped out
[PART III] [8667] or smoothed over . . . and so it's useless even to think of it, and I

[PART III] [8689] manners of a pothouse; and . . . and even admitting that he knew he

[PART III] [8691] to be proud of? Everyone ought to be a gentleman and more than that

[PART III] [8860] and that he noticed all the misery of her surroundings, his heart was
[PART III] [8861] filled with dread and he began to be afraid of every word he uttered,
[PART III] [8878] "You mean he is not capable of love?"
[PART III] [8882] remembering at once what he had just before said of her brother, he
[PART III] [8887] remarked, slightly piqued. "I am not talking of our present
[PART III] [8892] sure that he might do something now that nobody else would think of
[PART III] [8895] the idea of marrying that girl--what was her name--his landlady's

[PART III] [8925] which of them would have caused most misery to the other--he to her or
[PART III] [8933] seeking to excuse him on the score of his illness.
[PART III] [8942] "So this is your opinion of Pyotr Petrovitch?" Pulcheria Alexandrovna
[PART III] [8945] "I can have no other opinion of your daughter's future husband,"
[PART III] [8948] Romanovna has of her own free will deigned to accept this man. If I
[PART III] [8949] spoke so rudely of him last night, it was because I was disgustingly
[PART III] [8951] completely . . . and this morning I am ashamed of it."
[PART III] [8955] began to speak of Luzhin.
[PART III] [8964] "Of course, mother," said Avdotya Romanovna emphatically.
[PART III] [8967] speak of her trouble lifted a weight off her mind. "Very early this

[PART III] [9152] suffering, in place of its listless dejection. The light soon died
[PART III] [9153] away, but the look of suffering remained, and Zossimov, watching and
[PART III] [9154] studying his patient with all the zest of a young doctor beginning to
[PART III] [9155] practise, noticed in him no joy at the arrival of his mother and
[PART III] [9156] sister, but a sort of bitter, hidden determination to bear another
[PART III] [9157] hour or two of inevitable torture. He saw later that almost every word
[PART III] [9158] of the following conversation seemed to touch on some sore place and
[PART III] [9159] irritate it. But at the same time he marvelled at the power of

[PART III] [9266] the tragic end of Lieutenant Potanchikov, a friend of your father's--
[PART III] [9269] him out till next day. Of course, we exaggerated things. We were on
[PART III] [9270] the point of rushing to find Pyotr Petrovitch to ask him to help.
[PART III] [9273] to speak of Pyotr Petrovitch, although "we are quite happy again."
[PART III] [9275] "Yes, yes. . . . Of course it's very annoying. . . ." Raskolnikov
[PART III] [9308] performed in a masterly and most cunning way, while the direction of
[PART III] [9322] dozens--perhaps hundreds of thousands--hardly one is to be met with."
[PART III] [9336] unpardonable thing yesterday. I was literally out of my mind. I gave
[PART III] [9366] "It is as though they were afraid of me," Raskolnikov was thinking to

[PART III] [9424] said Raskolnikov irritably, as it were in spite of himself.
[PART III] [9429] "Why, are you all afraid of me?" he asked, with a constrained smile.
[PART III] [9446] pressing her hand. "We shall have time to speak freely of everything!"
[PART III] [9449] pale. Again that awful sensation he had known of late passed with
[PART III] [9452] never now be able to speak freely of everything--that he would never
[PART III] [9453] again be able to /speak/ of anything to anyone. The anguish of this
