Tolstoy's fiction includes dozens of short stories and several novellas such as The Death of Ivan Ilyich, Family Happiness, and Hadji Murad. He also wrote plays and numerous philosophical essays.

Translator's preface

Translator's preface. Opinions about Tolstoy and his work differ, but on one point there surely might be unanimity. This novel, written in the rough by Tolstoy some years ago and founded upon an actual occurrence, was completely rewritten by him during the last year and a half, and all the proceeds have been devoted by him to aiding the Doukhobors, a sect who were persecuted in the Caucasus (especially from 1895 to 1898) for refusing to learn war. About seven thousand three hundred of them are settled in Canada, and about a hundred of the leaders are exiled to the remote parts of Siberia.

The book is the last of his major long fiction works published in his lifetime. Tolstoy intended the novel as an exposition of injustice of man-made laws and the hypocrisy of institutionalized church. It was first published serially in the popular weekly magazine Niva in an effort to raise funds for the resettlement of the Dukhobors.

How can I rate Tolstoy? It is as wonderful and silly as Teffi’s story about how, as a little girl, she went to Tolstoy’s house in Moscow to ask him to change War and Peace so that Prince Andrei would not die, and then lost her nerve. Resurrection contains some of the best descriptions of remorse for something that cannot be undone in all literature. As a former lawyer, I was captivated by the trial scenes, where Tolstoy caught the attitudes of the judges and jurors better than almost everyone I have read. His descriptions of Russian legal process, so different from our own but so similar in its reliance on procedure and indifference to outcome, read as if written yesterday. The indifference of the legal process complements the indifference of Nekhludoff, who seduced Maklova and then paid her, turning a naïve young woman into a prostitute. The mystery is whether anyone can be redeemed by another person or even by God.
With this novel, we surely don't get Tolstoy's words, sentences, or even story line. Since there is no immersion edition for my audio book, I tried to follow with this one. After twenty or so chapters, the chapters aren't in order, and scenes and conversations are moved from one chapter to another 3 ahead. This edition has Nekhludoff liking one particular political prisoner best of all, and then we encounter the two speaking to each other with sarcasm and irony. This is confusing! Then I hear in the Audible edition that Nekhludoff likes him least, which makes sense in the context!
Now I am frustrated, angry, and reminded of some of my composition students who couldn't even copy accurately. I gave them failing grades!
So, it seems that some "editor" with an inflated opinion of his/her own skills and little respect for Tolstoy or history has altered his work
After l finished War and Peace, l tried a couple other books by different auhors and l just craved the wording of Tolstoy. As soon as l read the first few lines of this book, l was comforted. The storyline's moral struggle was enough to make me set the book down for a bit and lose myself in my own thoughts of morals. I thouroughly enjoyed the characters and would recommend this read.
This novel helps to renew the hope we have for each other, when one person becomes enlightened to the plights of people other than his class. This is a timeless tale that can deeply touch us today. After reading this novel I began to search out more books by this author, he really touched my heart and made me feel that there is hope out there if everyone could just be awakened.
Wrestled the essential questions of middle class angst, sexual inequality and biology-v-environment. Insightful and tight writing. Some interpretations are more raw than others. Some flat-out avoid some fine points the writer made. I suggest reading several translated versions unless you are blessed enough to read it in the original Russian.
Classic Toll story I enjoyed war and peace and his other works like Michener he mixes fiction with history
This is apparently a version based on Tolstoy's censored manuscript.LARGE PARTS ARE MISSING. Note that the title page is dated 1900. The censored parts were re-inserted in about 1910. (There is a French translation that indicates the censored parts that were re-inserted.)
Well written for the most part, just not as well or profoundly as Anna Karinina. The ending wasn't as interesting or resolve things as satisfyingly as I would have liked. I loved the exploration of living sincerely.
