Sonia follows him and, with her help, Raskolnikov begins his regeneration. Structure The general structure of the novel must be seen in terms of the main character, Raskolnikov. We must keep in mind his dual personality as the controlling idea behind the murder and behind his punishment. Raskolnikov is used as a representative of the modern young Russian intellectual whose fate is intricately bound up in the fate of Russia herself. Therefore the story is a parable of the fate of a nihilistic and skeptical youth in nineteenth century Russia, whose materialism and revolutionary opinions Dostoievsky hated and feared.
As she sank to the floor, he dealt her another and another blow with the blunt side of the ax on the same spot. Then, he lays the ax down by the body and begins to search through her pockets for keys. While searching for the keys, he notices that Alyona Ivanovna wears two crosses, one of cypress wood and one of copper. He takes the keys and also a small leather purse which is stuffed very full. As he searches the rooms, he suddenly hears footsteps in the entrance way. He comes upon Lizaveta staring at her murdered step-sister in horror.
In the dual murder scene, note that Alyona is murdered with the blunt side of the ax and that Lizaveta is murdered with the sharp side of the ax. In this dual murder, he has killed one person who is mean, wicked and cold (Alyona) and a second, Lizaveta, who is warm, friendly, humane and compassionate. Thus, in a figurative manner, the two murders represent the two aspects of Raskolnikov's character. The importance here is that later Raskolnikov seldom thinks of the murder of Lizaveta, but is always troubled about the murder of Alyona.
