I am stuck trying to figure out something from Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment. In the following passage:
The young man stepped into the dark entry, which was partitioned off from the tiny kitchen
which is from the first chapter of the 4th page, in the Dover Thrift edition of the novel. It is describing Alyona Ivanovna's apartment. I am troubled by the outline of her apartment. Where is this kitchen? We have the landing, the thin, dark, passageway, and then a door to her parlor, but where is the kitchen? Is the kitchen a shared kitchen in the landing where Raskolnikov is standing? Does it branch off from the passageway into its own tiny subsection, separate from the parlor? Is it part of the parlor? In any case, can anyone provide some sort of interpretation of this to stop my annoyance at not understanding where this damned kitchen is!
