Description The author of the present study deals with the picture of family and family relationships which gained an important place especially in Russian literature of the 19th century. The study is focused on the interpretation of the motif of so-called accidental family in five works by Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky (1821–1881). This motif connects four novels Netochka Nezvanova (1849), Humiliated and Insulted (1861), The Adolescent (1875) and The Brothers Karamazov (1880) with A Writer’s Diary which is a work moving on the borders between belles-lettres and documentary literature. According to Dostoyevsky’s views on family and family happiness, the author tries to interpret the motif in connection with developing of this motif in Dostoyevsky’s works and with the genre of a diary as well. Among the works by Dostoyevsky the author highlighted an important role of A Writer’s Diary because of the fact that especially this work serves as a key to the interpretation of the motif of an accidental family.
