Leo Tolstoy, author of such masterpieces of fiction as War and Peace and Anna Karenina, also wrote extensively about his own life experiences. In this series of essays, Tolstoy presents a creatively re-imagined version of his earliest recollections and influences.
3) Poor Folk
Delve into the always-timely issue of poverty and socio-economic marginalization in the first novel by acclaimed Russian fiction writer Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Poor Folk recounts the trials and tribulations—and all-too-rare moments of triumph—experienced by several groups of destitute peasants in nineteenth-century Russia.
Widely regarded as one of the most talented novelists the world has ever produced, Leo Tolstoy began his work in long-form fiction with a series of three novels based loosely on his own life experiences. In Childhood, Tolstoy recounts the innocent joys of his early life and the gradual progression toward a more cynical, mature adult view of the world—a process that the author regards as tragic.
