Fyodor Dostoevsky

Fyodor Dostoevsky is the classic example of a psychological writer. All of his characters are deeply introspective and his prose focuses upon their thoughts and feelings in regards to their situations. His writing is very cerebral and devoted to describing the feelings of horror and anguish that can come over someone when confronted with a terrible conflict. Usually his characters are put in situations dealing with murder or death and they are forced to examine themselves as a result. His writing is also realistic and deals with real situations in real settings. Dostoevsky's cerebral, realistic literary style best resembles your own. Your characters are just as introspective and tend to deal with the same mental conflicts as Dostoevsky's.
