He enters the room, furnished with old furniture, but clean, says that he brought a mortgage, and shows an old flat silver watch, promises to bring a little thing a few days ago, takes the money and leaves.
From there he was assigned to a Moscow hospital, where he served as military doctor, and inhe was appointed a senior physician. In he married Maria Nechayeva. The following year, he took up a post at the Mariinsky Hospital for the poor. Varvara —Andrei —Lyubov born and diedVera —Nikolai — and Aleksandra — Mikhail Dostoevsky and Maria Dostoevskaya born Nechayeva.
He was raised in the family home in the grounds of the Mariinsky Hospital for the Poor, which was in a lower class district on the edges of Moscow. From the age of three, he was reading heroic sagas, fairy tales and legends by his nanny, Alena Frolovna, an especially influential figure in his upbringing and love for fictional stories.
When a nine-year-old girl had been raped by a drunk, he was asked to fetch his father to attend to her. The incident haunted him, and the theme of the desire of a mature man for a young girl appears in The Devils, The Brothers Karamazov, Crime and Punishment, and other writings.
He was described as a pale, introverted dreamer and an over-excitable romantic. Dostoevsky felt out of place among his aristocratic classmates at the Moscow school, and the experience was later reflected in some of his works, notably The Adolescent.
The previous May, his parents had sent Dostoevsky and his brother Mikhail to St Petersburg to attend the free Nikolayev Military Engineering Instituteforcing the brothers to abandon their academic studies for military careers. Dostoevsky entered the academy in Januarybut only with the help of family members.
Mikhail was refused admission on health grounds and was sent to the Academy in RevalEstonia. As his friend Konstantin Trutovsky once said, "There was no student in the entire institution with less of a military bearing than F.
He moved clumsily and jerkily; his uniform hung awkwardly on him; and his knapsack, shako and rifle all looked like some sort of fetter he had been forced to wear for a time and which lay heavily on him. Although he was solitary and inhabited his own literary world, he was respected by his classmates.
His reclusiveness and interest in religion earned him the nickname "Monk Photius ". Had the serfs been found guilty and sent to SiberiaKhotiaintsev would have been in a position to buy the vacated land. He visited Mikhail in Reval, and frequently attended concerts, operas, plays and ballets.
During this time, two of his friends introduced him to gambling. Rizenkampf, a friend of Mikhail. Rizenkampf characterised him as "no less good-natured and no less courteous than his brother, but when not in a good mood he often looked at everything through dark glasses, became vexed, forgot good manners, and sometimes was carried away to the point of abusiveness and loss of self-awareness".
None were successful, and his financial difficulties led him to write a novel. His friend Dmitry Grigorovichwith whom he was sharing an apartment at the time, took the manuscript to the poet Nikolay Nekrasovwho in turn showed it to the renowned and influential literary critic Vissarion Belinsky.
Shortly thereafter, he wrote his second novel, The Doublewhich appeared in the journal Notes of the Fatherland on 30 Januarybefore being published in February.
Around the same time, Dostoevsky discovered socialism through the writings of French thinkers FourierCabetProudhon and Saint-Simon. Through his relationship with Belinsky he expanded his knowledge of the philosophy of socialism.
He was attracted to its logic, its sense of justice and its preoccupation with the destitute and the disadvantaged. Dostoevsky eventually parted with him and his associates. From to he released several short stories in the magazine Annals of the Fatherland, including " Mr.
These stories were unsuccessful, leaving Dostoevsky once more in financial trouble, so he joined the utopian socialist Betekov circle, a tightly knit community which helped him to survive. When the circle dissolved, Dostoevsky befriended Apollon Maykov and his brother Valerian. Inon the recommendation of the poet Aleksey Pleshcheyev he joined the Petrashevsky Circlefounded by Mikhail Petrashevskywho had proposed social reforms in Russia.
Mikhail Bakunin once wrote to Alexander Herzen that the group was "the most innocent and harmless company" and its members were "systematic opponents of all revolutionary goals and means".
Dostoevsky never attempted to complete it. Dostoevsky was accused of reading works by Belinsky, including the banned Letter to Gogol,  and of circulating copies of these and other works. Antonelli, the government agent who had reported the group, wrote in his statement that at least one of the papers criticised Russian politics and religion.
Dostoevsky responded to these charges by declaring that he had read the essays only "as a literary monument, neither more nor less"; he spoke of "personality and human egoism" rather than of politics. Even so, he and his fellow "conspirators" were arrested on 23 April at the request of Count A.
The members were held in the well-defended Peter and Paul Fortresswhich housed the most dangerous convicts.
They sentenced the members of the circle to death by firing squad, and the prisoners were taken to Semyonov Place in St Petersburg on 23 December where they were split into three-man groups.
