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.
