As soon as Doodle is born the narrator shows a sense of disappointment and hatred towards his brother. One of the first signs of the narrator's feelings is in the third paragraph when he says “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow.” This shows that the narrator was disappointed and horrified of having a brother who would not be all there.

In “Property,” Stony never flat out states that he is hurt about the passing away of his wife; but his friction with objects, that appear to be so mundane, like the platform bed is central to our understanding of what exactly is hurting him. A bed is more than just a place of rest; it holds all the memories central to everyone’s lives. In demeaning the bed and finding every way to disassociate himself with it, it becomes obvious that Stony is forcing himself to avoid recollecting his union with Pamela and their many memories. Stony only allows us to see how hurt he is through his actions and the author’s diction. Ranging from the author’s association of the bed as a torture device to Stony moving and placing the bed in the studio with the other precious items, Stony’s true feelings towards his wife’s passing are
Crime and Punishment exposes us to a character who is engrossed by his dueling personalities. Raskolnikov, throughout the novel, is shown as one of two people; a sensitive, caring, and compassionate person, or a dark and indifferent psychopath. His “dark side” is what leads to committing the murders of Alyona Ivanova and her sister. The personality battle presented in Raskolnikov after the murders show that it creates an inner conflict. This inner conflict grows and grows, becoming worse and worse until it drives him insane with guilt and forces him to confess to his act.
Peter Petrovich, the fiancé of Raskolnikov’s sister, first meets Raskolnikov when Raskolnikov is ill in his apartment. Raskolnikov’s preconceived dislike towards Petrovich conveys the idea that Petrovich is not likeable.

Whether or not Petrovich is an enjoyable person, his thoughts about self-importance and self-love are easily extendable to outside the world of Crime and Punishment.
