He spots an old worn Bible on the dresser, and he is surprised to learn that it was a gift from Lizaveta  who was her good friend and she has had a requiem said for Lizaveta. He asks her to read to him  the story of the raising of Lazarus. She hesitates because she did not want to read to an unbeliever,  but slowly and carefully, she read the story for both of them. After she finishes reading the story, Raskolnikov tells her how much he needs her and asks her to  join him and go the same road with him because they both have transgressed against life — that is  Sonya has transgressed against her own self, and he has taken life. As he is about to leave, he tells  Sonya that if he comes tomorrow, he will tell her who killed Lizaveta. At the end of the chapter, we discover that Svidrigailov has been standing and listening in the next  room, an empty one between his room and Sonya's. He so thoroughly enjoyed their conversation

    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.
