The Key Biblical Subtext in the Epilogue to Crime and Punishment

Olga Meerson. "The Key Biblical Subtext in the Epilogue to Crime and Punishment ." Dostoevskij i mirovaia kul’tura 30. 2 (2013).

The article is in Russian. It is dedicated to the seemingly belated repentance of Raskolnikov in the Epilogue to Crime and Punishment, with the argument that Raskolnikov undergoes a complete change of mind because of an existential, not an intellectual, experience cast in the terms of the Bible: like the Biblical character Isaac, he finds himself in the position of someone surviving his own death. Besides Isaac and Raskolnikov, the experience was shared by Dostoevsky himself and tremendously relevant for his poetics and philosophy.
