Boek cover Tolstoy as Teacher van Count Leo Nikolayevich Tolstoy,  (Paperback)
Leo Tolstoy's Writings on Education
In 1861-62, the great Russian novelist founded and ran his own school on his estate at Yasnaya Polyana. Brimming with progressive and sometimes radical ideas on schooling, Tolstoy undertook to teach the peasant children reading, history, arithmetic, and imaginative writing. The school was a paradise for Tolstoy, and he published a flurry of essays about his teaching experiences. Several describe his lessons in fiction writing. Tolstoy As Teacher features the most important of these essays -- among them the famous "Are the Peasant Children to Learn to Write from Us, or Are We to Learn from the...

Boek cover A Confession van Leo Tolstoy (Paperback)
Despite having written War and Peace and Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy, at the age of 51, looked back on his life and considered it a meaningless, regrettable failure. A Confession provides insight into the great Russian writer's movement from the pursuit of aesthetic ideals toward matters of religious and philosophical consequence. Authentic and genuinely moving, this memoir of midlife spiritual crisis was first distributed in 1872 and marked a turning point in the author's career as a writer: in subsequent years, Tolstoy would write almost exclusively about religious life, especially devotion...

Boek cover The Kreutzer Sonata and Other Stories van Count Leo Nikolayevich Tolstoy,  (Paperback)
`To love him was not enough for me after the happiness I had felt in falling in love. I wanted movement and not a calm course of existence. I wanted excitement and danger and the chance to sacrifice myself for my love.' Leo Tolstoy, known to the world for his famous novels, also created throughout his sixty-year career as a writer a significant body of works of shorter ficiton. These fictions, like his novels, tend toward a uniqueness in form, even as they explore a set of themes common in the longer works. The four novellas selected here stand closest to the novels, and represent...

Boek cover The Kreutzer Sonata and Other Stories van Count Leo Nikolayevich Tolstoy,  (Onbekend)
'The Kreutzer Sonata' is the self-lacerating confession of a man consumed by sexual jealousy and eaten up by shame and eventually driven to murder his wife. The story caused a sensation when it first appeared and Tolstoy's wife was appalled that he had drawn on their own experiences together to create a scathing indictment of marriage. 'The Devil', centring on a young man torn between his passion for a peasant girl and his respectable life with his loving wife, also illustrates the impossibility of pure love. 'The Forged Coupon' shows how an act of corruption can spiral out of control, and...
