Tolstoy began contriving his Hadji-Murat novella with his participation in the Caucasian War. Why did the story of this Caucasian separatist attract the writer? Tolstoy admired his integrity in each of his undertakings and his endless persistence in his struggle. Hadji-Murat, powerful and daring Shamil's naib, was natural at riding. He was famous among the Caucasian peoples. His feats were incredible: He showed up unexpectedly and [then] left so that regiments could not entrap him. Hadji-Murat went wherever the situation was heating up. The Caucasus ruler, Shamil, was becoming afraid of him and decided to kill him. So Hadji-Murat had no other option except to defect to Russia. He was shot during a fight when he tried to escape and hide in the mountains.

About the Author
Author Leo Tolstoy

Leo Tolstoy (1828–1910) was born about two hundred miles from Moscow. His mother died when he was two, his father when he was nine. His parents were of noble birth, and Tolstoy remained acutely aware of his aristocratic roots, even when he later embraced doctrines of equality and the brotherhood of man. After serving in the army in the Caucasus and Crimea, where he wrote his first stories, he traveled and studied educational theories. In 1862 he married Sophia Behrs and for the next fifteen years lived a tranquil, productive life, finishing War and Peace in 1869 and Anna Karenina in 1877. In 1879 he underwent a spiritual crisis; he sought to propagate his beliefs on faith, morality, and nonviolence, writing mostly parables, tracts, and morality plays. Tolstoy died of pneumonia in 1910 at the age of eighty-two.
