Homework Help: Crime and Punishment

Posted by Ashley on Friday, December 15, 2006 at 10:56am.

In the novel Crime and Punishment, what qualities in the landlady's daughter endeared her to Raskolnikov? Is the attraction comparable to or opposite from Luzhin's attraction to Dounia?

I'm not sure of where in the novel this information would be, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

This site will help!

From what I remember, Dostoevski described characters in incredible detail -- their looks as well as their personalities/character traits.

Better yet, you could go here and search for the characters by name:
