I have for you today three stupid questions for the price of one.
Part I, chapter 3
What happened to Raskolnokov’s father?
In Mrs. Raskolnikov’s letter she writes, “Rodya, you are everything to us–our one hope, our one consolation.”
Doesn’t it sound like she’s describing Jesus and not her questionably sane son who’s pondering murder?
What’s up with Mrs. Rask closing her lengthy letter with “Yours till death”?
Now that’s the kind of closing that just gives a child a warm, fuzzy feeling, isn’t it?
