Leo Tolstoy: Collected Shorter Fiction Vol 2

£14.99

Product description

Written over a period of more than half a century, Tolstoy's enchanting short stories and novellas reflect every aspect of his developing art and outlook. Several short fables, printed in Volume 1 of the Everyman collection, pointed to Tolstoy's later preoccupation with the religious life. Volume 2 reveals how these spiritual intimations flowered into a series of extraordinary late masterpieces which equal anything in the earlier novels for intensity and power. Readers of 'The Death of Ivan Ilych', 'The Kreutzer Sonata', 'Father Sergius', 'Master and Man' and 'Hadji Murad' will recognize the brilliant younger novelist, now transfigured by his passionate quest for salvation and forgiveness. This is a school library copy and has library stamps on both front and rear end papers and an unused borrowing record sheet pasted to the front free end paper. The book has maroon boards and gilt titles on a black spine panel, and appears "almost new". The jacket is also in fine condition with some slight creases to spine ends and some light dust-soiling marks on the white rear cover. Translasted from the Russian by Louise and Aylmer Maude and Nigel J. Cooper. Introduction by John Bayley.
