He basically was informing the father that if his daughter does the same as his last wife then she would be killed as well. I cannot determine if the killing that took place in “Porphyria’s Lover”, was the right or wrong thing to do, but I know it was the wrong thing to do in “My Last Duchess”, because the woman did not know of his unhappiness. In “Porphyria’s Lover”, it seemed right, because she was promised to a man that she did not love; she would have been unhappy throughout the rest of her life. On the other hand it seemed wrong, because it was like if he couldn’t have her then no one else could. Porphyria told her lover that she would love him forever, and he made sure of that.

Dunya is presented as Svid’s prey but in reality she has as firm control of him emotionally as he does socially as a result of his knowledge of Raskolinov’s crime. Svid is in love with Dunya and either refuses or is unable to come to terms with the idea that she will not come to love him if they are married. Svid recognizes Dunya’s hatred of him when she attempts to shoot him during this scene. Svid probably killed his wife in order to move to St. Petersburg in an attempt to be with her. It is only after Dunya attempts to kill him that he understands that a life with Dunya is impossible, saying with a surprised tone, “So you do not love me.” She conveys this through her use of a gun.
