That is simple. Tatyana was the one of the 140 or so of them whom he liked the most. It is obvious from his love letter that he had something going with her for days or weeks. In answer to your question, he tried to kill his wife because he was crazy. He was writing 100 Ukrainian women because he was crazy. He was and is crazy. This explains all things that he did.
