Book Description

This is a critical introduction to the novels and short stories of Tolstoy, treating them in their own right as works of literature, not as biographical evidence or contributions to a philosophical system. The heart of the book, inevitably, is in the examination of War and Peace and Anna Karenina, but most of Tolstoy's other fiction is also discussed.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Well organized critical analysis of Tolstoy's major work by a critic who loves him. In it he counters critics less enamoured of T's work often on a line-by-line analysis of the beauty and depth of the text. Good one to own, mark, quote and refer to forever.
