Yes, there's no denying, the Svidrigailovs are a bitter pill! It's a bitter thing to spend one's life a  governess in the provinces for two hundred roubles, but I know she would rather be a nigger on a  plantation or a Lett with a German master than degrade her soul, and her moral dignity, by binding  herself for ever to a man whom she does not respect and with whom she has nothing in common —  for her own advantage. And if Mr. Luzhin had been of unalloyed gold, or one huge diamond, she  would never have consented to become his legal concubine. Why is she consenting then? What's  the point of it? What's the answer? It's clear enough: for herself, for her comfort, to save her life she  would not sell herself, but for someone else she is doing it! For one she loves, for one she adores,  she will sell herself! That's what it all amounts to; for her brother, for her mother, she will sell herself!

What students are saying

    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.
