Classic fiction (pre c 1945); Short stories; Fiction in translation
These four novellas, each unique in form, show Tolstoy at his creative height. As in the longer novels, the central characters are presented in states of crisis over the meaning and purpose of their lives. Written over a period of almost fifty years, these works reflect Tolstoy's changing views on art and sexuality, women and marriage, nationalism and ethnicity, war and empire, and the central Tolstoyan theme of love. The edition uses the famous and superior Maude translations (except Family Happiness, translated by J.D. Duff), corrected against modern standard Russian texts to create the English language version. Contains: `Family Happiness'; `The Kreutzer Sonata'; `The Cossacks'; `Hadji Murad'.
