Alyosha leaves Dmitri and goes to Katerina shortly thereafter. He finds Ivan just leaving, but his  brother remains long enough to hear what Alyosha says concerning Dmitri. When Ivan leaves,  Katerina becomes highly emotional and insists that Alyosha follow him; she is convinced that Ivan is  going mad. Alyosha rushes to rejoin Ivan and learns yet another piece of news. Ivan says that Katerina has a  "document in her hands . . . that proves conclusively" that Dmitri did indeed murder their father.  Alyosha denies that such a document could exist, and Ivan then asks who the murderer is. Alyosha  tells him, "It wasn't you who killed Father," explaining that he is aware that Ivan has been accusing  himself, but that God has sent Alyosha to Ivan to reassure him. Ivan is sickened by Alyosha's  religious mysticism and leaves him abruptly.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
