A scene should be composed of the main unnatural and incongruous parts, however the surroundings and the presentation are so believable, the main points so sophisticated, so unforeseen, so artistically in concord with the entire photo, that the dreamer couldn't invent them for himself in his waking kingdom. Such morbid goals constantly make a robust influence at the dreamer’s already disturbed and excited nerves, and are remembered for a very long time. ” hence, Dostoevsky is asserting to the reader that Raskolnikov’s dream now and later may have distinct desiring to him and therefore all of the desires are symbolic in a single manner or one other. while Raskolnikov awakens, he wonders if he can truly “take an awl. . . cut up her cranium open. . . tread within the sticky hot blood. . .

This pertains to the pawnbroker’s titanic quantity of estate and the perfect to dispense with it as she pleases; whether she “wastes” it on clergymen chanting prayers for the lifeless, it's however her estate. the assumption of the blameless agony because the horse needs to undergo is implicit. the pony has been interpreted as being “mother Russia” when you consider that later while Raskolnikov confesses, Sonya tells him to bow down and kiss the earth of mom Russia that he has defiled. After the dream, the overheard dialog unearths that Lizaveta should be absent at 7:00 the subsequent evening. This forces Raskolnikov to think about it an ideal chance to dedicate the crime. Later Raskolnikov will try to justify the assumption of the crime and retain in simple terms that he done it sooner than the belief was once thoroughly formulated. yet at this aspect, the destitute poverty, the emotional letter from his mom, and the favorable situation of Alyona Ivanovna’s being on my own will mix to push the particular act into fast execution.
