Description

1910. Maude was a translator of many of Tolstoy's works and the writer of his biography, of which this is the second volume. Tolstoy is considered one of the greatest of all novelists with his collected works numbering 90 and War and Peace and Anna Karenina being counted as his two masterpieces. After finishing Anna Karenina Tolstoy renounced all his earlier works and wrote Conversion to explain his doctrines. Resurrection was his last major novel. By this time, Tolstoy started to himself more as a sage and moral leader than an artist. In 1901 the Russian Orthodox Church excommunicated the author. Tolstoy became seriously ill and he recuperated in Crimea. He then left his estate to his disciple Vladimir Chertkov so as to follow the urge to live as a wandering ascetic, Tolstoy died of pneumonia on November 20, 1910, at a remote railway junction. Contents: The Transition Stage; Theology and the Gospels; Letter to the Tsar; Riches and Poverty; Renunciations; The New Life; What Then Must We Do? A Strenuous Year; Effects of the Teaching; Non-Resistance; The Sex Question; The Famine; Patriotism; The Doukhobors; and Excommunication.
