Leo Tolstoy (Writers and Their Work (Paperback))
- Publish Date: 1996-01-15
- Binding: Paperback
- Author: John Bayley
Tolstoy's art, as represented in his greatest novels: War and Peace and Anna Karenina, continues to absorb, fascinate and delight modern readers despite the lack of appeal of much of his later convictions. John Bayley concentrates on Tolstoy's two great works and the ancillary texts and tales that relate to them and makes a compelling case for a return to the originals which continue to captivate readers and draw them irresistibly into a uniquely spacious and complex world.
