Ranging in scope from lengthy novellas to fables and folktales only a few pages long, Leo Tolstoys short fiction provides a marvelous opportunity to become closely acquainted with Russias great novelist.
Volume 2 of the Collected Shorter Fiction reveals how Tolstoys growing spiritual preoccupations flowered into a series of extraordinary late masterpieces that equal anything in the earlier novels for intensity and power. Readers of The Death of Iván Ilých, The Kreutzer Sonata, Father Sergius, Master and Man, and Hadji Murád will recognize the brilliant novelist now transfigured by his passionate quest for salvation and forgiveness.
Aylmer and Louise Maudes classic translations are supplemented by new translations by Nigel J. Cooper of six stories, including two that have never before appeared in English.
