Because the subconscious mind is so difficult to understand, the actions that it effects could be mislabeled by society as induced by madness. Because of the ordeal that Raskolnikov went through after the crime, he would never be able to hurt another soul as long as he lived.

Svidrigailov stands alone without the comfort of family and friends.

Dostoevsky presents several possible explanations as to why Raskolnikov committed the crime, including financial gain, humanitarian reasons, mental illness, and environmental influences, to name a few.

A religious epic? Firstly, his madness is limited to the topic of chivalry — he can comment rationally on almost any other issue. He believes that he is omnipotent, and the reader reluctantly believes that.

She reluctantly accompanies him to his rooms, where he reveals what he overheard and attempts to use it to make her yield to his desire.

He knows now that evil cannot satisfy intellect. Upon entering his room Raskolnikov is deeply shocked to see his mother and sister sitting on the sofa. Raskolnikov defends himself skillfully, but he is alarmed and angered by Porfiry's insinuating tone. He also kills her half-sister, Lizaveta, who happens to stumble upon the scene of the crime. We realize that Raskolnikov is the protagonist of Crime and Punishment. Timidly, she explains that he left his address with them last night, and that she has come to invite him to attend her father's funeral. What need does it fulfill? When they return the next morning Raskolnikov has improved physically, but it becomes apparent that he is still mentally distracted and merely forcing himself to endure the meeting. They both want to be beyond good and evil. As much as Raskolnikov wants to believe that his crime was a trial of sorts to see whether or he was a Napoleon or a louse, the truth seems to be that he already knows that he is no Napoleon. Because of these labors, there is now a fragmentary working draft of the story, or novella, as initially conceived, as well as two other versions of the text. Razumikhin exhibits his own sort of madness: he is always drunk, which obscures his reason and makes him socially overbearing. Dunya tells him to leave and never come back.
