      At half the size of War and Peace and two thirds the length of Anna Karenina Tolstoy s Resurrection is every bit as epic, and probably his most controversial novel that appears to have strong political and religious implications as the backbone to the story, and what a story A later Novel for Tolstoy written in 1899 under the leadership of Tsar Nicholas II and an empire repressing political opposition in the centre and on the far left Starting out as a courtroom drama we soon get drawn into a hu [...]

      What moved me the most in this novel is how true is what Tolstoy says about the judicial system, even in our world of today And this is not just in France, but all over the world When I read those sections on judicial errors, imprisonment for lack of official papers, inhuman treatment of prisoners, and the fallacy of the correctional system , I really had the impression that very little has changed since his time.But, before I get carried out, here are some points that also moved me deeply, as [...]

      Dear Tolstoy I heart you.Love,El.______________________I had some reservations about reading this book because I knew going into it that it was the last novel he wrote, and I know that in his later years he became especially religious and it showed in his writing, and jeez, do we really need of that sort of preachiness Apparently we do.Resurrection isn t as popular as Tolstoy s other two major novels, Anna Karenina and War and Peace, nor is it as long as those others Apparently when it was firs [...]

      So what is this book, Tolstoy s last novel published in 1899 , about Five things 1 The brutality and injustice of both the legal and prison system 2 The grimness of life for the peasantry in Russia in the early decades of the 1800s 3 Land ownership.4 Religion.5 The importance of compassion and empathy for others.The book is clearly written as a polemic As such it was too preachy for my taste Knowing that Tolstoy at midlife transformed himself from a dissipate aristocrat into a penitent, saintly [...]

      The last major novel by Tolstoy According to , Vladimir Nabakov heaped superlatives upon Anna Karenina , but questioned the reputation of War and Peace , and sharply criticized Resurrection and The Kreutzer Sonata My opinion is the exact opposite.To me, this is a mature and riveting work than Anna Karenina , because it contains deeper spiritual and social insights, the upshot of the author s personal struggles and growth in the intervening years In Anna Karenina , we witness the despair and des [...]

      This book has been described as preachy in tone and outdated in content and I couldn t disagree One of the major themes of this book is the difficulty of living a moral life in a society that makes it difficult to achieve life s satisfactions and remain moral In exploring this theme, you get not only the wonderful social commentary Tolstoy is so known for, but also a synthesis of the moral philosophies that characterize his later work I know that a lot of people might not agree with Tolstoy s v [...]
