Mariya Dmitriyevna Isayeva m. (1857–64) [her death]

Fyodor Mikhaylovich Dostoyevsky[4] (11 November 1821[5] – 9 February[6] 1881) was a Russian writer and essayist,[7] best known for his novels Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov.

Dostoyevsky's literary works explored human psychology in the troubled political, social and spiritual context of 19th-century Russian society. Considered by many as a founder or precursor of 20th-century existentialism, Dostoyevsky wrote, with the embittered voice of the anonymous "underground man", Notes from Underground (1864), which was called the "best overture for existentialism ever written" by Walter Kaufmann.[8] Dostoyevsky is often acknowledged by critics as one of the greatest and most prominent psychologists in world literature.[9]
