A person will always be interested in another person. His life, his story.
We read literature primarily in order to more, even if imaginary characters, to comprehend themselves, their lives.
The better it will be if we take not the most unambiguous character. Let’s turn to the image of Rodion Raskolnikov from the novel by F. M. Dostoevsky “Crime and Punishment”. It will also be appropriate to Grigory Pechorin (M. Yu. Lermontov “Hero of Our Time”), and Eugene Onegin (AS Pushkin “Eugene Onegin”), and Luka (MA Gorky “At the bottom”), and Woland M. A. Bulgakov “Master and Margarita”).
Not all the people we meet in our lives are interesting to us, not all of us accept. Similarly, we do not accept some characters
What can we accept in the person who committed the hardest of all human sins – the murder of another person? Rodion Raskolnikov in Fyodor Dostoevsky’s novel “Crime and Punishment” kills an old woman-interest-paying woman in order to test her theory. The essence of this is that all people are divided into 2 categories: the creatures are trembling, and those who have the right.
I understand the motive of Raskolnikov, because Alena Ivanovna (the old woman who is a penny-pinch) is really a miserable person who, through her actions, her greed, has led many to a desperate situation.
But no matter how great ideas and intentions a person is enveloped in, he should in no way act as an ax in the destinies of other people.
Not out of a good life, Raskolnikov took such a step, he really saved many, like Rodion, from having to repay debts.
We can arbitrarily condemn the way of life that the old woman-percent-owner was leading, but each of us must be able to decide how to live, so as not to be in conflict with his inner world.
You can understand Raskolnikov, but the right to kill, no normal society, no normal person – should not take.
