In any novel as great as  Crime and Punishment , the details of the early or introductory chapters will  become central to the interpretation of the entire novel. In this first chapter, Raskolnikov is seen  isolated from everyone; later, he even feels uncomfortable around his mother and sister. And in the  Epilogue when Raskolnikov is in prison in Siberia, he feels isolated and estranged from his fellow  prisoners: ". . . he felt that terrible unbridgeable chasm which lay between him and the others. . .as if  he and they belonged to different races." Both in this first chapter and the Epilogue, Raskolnikov  avoided everyone. Throughout the novel he will begin a conversation with an individual and suddenly  without any reason, he will leave and isolate himself further.
