Alone, he begins to examine the basis of his theory. He still believes in the nobility of the theory, but  he worries about whether he might not have destroyed some of its nobility by practicing it on a  disgusting object like the old pawnbroker. Napoleon was a real ruler "to whom everything is  permitted," but he cannot believe Napoleon, who conquered "the pyramids" and "destroyed Toulon,"  would ever "crawl under a vile old woman's bed." He then realizes that he "killed not a human being  but a principle." Furthermore, he feels that he may also be a louse, and he again thinks of  confession. He falls asleep and dreams that he is again striking the old pawnbroker, but this time she refuses to  die. When he awakens from this dreadful dream, he notices Svidrigailov standing in his doorway.

    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.
