Book 7 Summary
BOOK 7 Analysis
Dmitri wants Grushenka to marry him and be his.

Samsonov rejected Dmitri's offer & told him to go to someone who could help him.

He sent him to a cruel man named Lyavgeny.

He asked for Madame Hohlakov's help, got rejected and was told to go to the gold mines instead
Dmitri did not know what to do anymore so he decided to go back to Grushenka.

He goes back to Grushenka's house to ask her servants about her whereabouts.

He came to realization that he cannot have Grushenka and a life without her is meaningless.

He went to Perhotin and redeemed his gun. Perhotin was puzzled when he saw the blood on

Dmitri's shirt, so he followed him. Dmitri went to buy large amounts of food and Perhotin is really confused with his actions.

Dmitri went to Grushenka and his ex lover and ironically treats them nicely,

Novels way back in time were not as exciting compared to the novels we wrtie todaty regardless,
Parallels to the idea in Perfume:
the way something smelled, deeply reveal of its inner qualities
smell good = good morality ; smell bad = corrupt
since Father Zossima's corpse emits a foul smell, they start thinking that maybe he is not the person they think he is.
believed that he is not holy and in reality a corrupt man

• Another factor that shows Dmitri is guilty is his anger towards Grigory
When Dmitri strikes Grigory, we can concluded that he is dangerous enough to kill anyone in his path, including his father, whom he loathes.

Hearing about this, what do you think of Dmitri?
Do you believe he is capable of killing his father? Why or why not?

"Never judge anyone because man shares the responsibility for the sins of all other men." -Father Zossima

- In our society, judging other people is in our human nature, why do you think people judge others without really knowing them?

Dmitri is a very angry & sinful person but at the same time he is very faithful and a follower of God
Parallels with nature of humanity:

 Do you think that we have free will?
 Does our free will allows us to overcome our sinful nature and live within our good nature?
God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:26-27). if this is so, then why is it in our nature to commit sin?
The fact is that each and every person born from the beginning has inherited the sin nature of his parents,
David says, "Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me” (Psalm 51:5
