The Brothers Karamazov

The Brothers Karamazov

  

by Fyodor Dostoevsky

The Brothers Karamazov Book 9, Chapter 4 Summary

The Second Torment

  • Parfenovich and Kirillovich continue their interrogation.
  • Full of good intentions, Dmitri gives a long, rambling, detailed account of the events of the past two days, but the district attorney and the prosecutor aren't too impressed with his candor. They only seem interested in a few questions of fact: how much money he had, how much money he needed, and why he grabbed the brass pestle.
