IB: Transgression and Redemption Final

  1. How does the city serve simultaneously as a symbol of society and of Raskolnikov's state of mind?
  2. Does Razumikhin serve as Raskolnikov's foil? Defend, challenge or qualify.
  3. What impact do the descriptions of the various apartments--including those of Raskolnikov, Alyona, Sonya, Luzhin, and Dunya and Pulcheria Alexandrovna--have on our understanding of the characters who inhabit them and the events that take place within them?
  4. What effect does having the murder occur at the very beginning of the novel have on the structure of the novel?
Prep all four; draw on exam day. You will use your prepped notes and your novel to answer the question you draw.
