two young women. After talking with Sonia, Raskolnikov fully confesses to the murder, and is sentenced to eight years in a siberian prision. Sonia follows him and with her help, Raskolnikov begins his regeneration. Rodian Raskolnikov is best seen as two characters. He often acts in one manner, and then suddenly in a manner completly contradictory.
