Publisher Description

Tolstoy is perhaps best recognized as the author of the classic novels War and Peace and Anna Karenina. While he was able to sustain complex and moving plots though large novels, his ability as a great writer also is demonstrated in his many short stories. Tolstoy brings to these brief tales the same psychological depth and spiritual insight found in his large novels. In fact, his short stories are an excellent place to begin reading this great author. You will find his challenging themes of morality, forgiveness, redemption, and more. // Here Hovel Audio has collected several of Tolstoy's most-loved short stories. Hovel has paid special attention, focusing on themes of spiritual significance. The stories in this collection include: // God Sees the Truth but Waits // A Prisoner in the Caucuses // Alyosha The Plot // Father Sergius // What Men Live By // Where God Is Love Is

About 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.
