Klappentext:

Praise for TOLSTOY
"Rosamund Bartlett's new biography conveys Tolstoy to me more vividly than any biography I have read." A. N. Wilson, "Financial Times"
"A splendid book immensely readable, full of fresh details, and often quite brilliant in its perceptiveness about the greatest of Russian writers, and one of the stars in the Western firmament. This biography has the sweep and vividness of literature itself, and I strongly recommend it." Jay Parini, author of "The Last Station "
"Bartlett reminds us not only that the great man is not so very long dead, but also that his myth is being made and remade even now." Claire Messud, "The Telegraph "(UK)
"Worth the wait . . . Her deep and easy familiarity with her subject and the period permits Bartlett to touch on both the thinkers and writers who engaged Tolstoy, while getting to the essence of the spiritual power that informs his work. "Publishers Weekly" (starred)
"An epic biography that does justice to an epic figure." "Library Journal" (starred)
"Should become the first resort for everyone drawn to its titanic subject." "Booklist "(starred)
"A rich, complex life told in rich, complex prose." "Kirkus "(starred)

Umschlagtext:

Magisterial sweep and scale. "The Independent" (UK)
In November 1910, Count Lev Tolstoy died at a remote Russian railway station. At the time of his death, he was the most famous man in Russia, with a growing international following, and more revered than the tsar. Born into an aristocratic family, Tolstoy had spent his life rebelling against not only conventional ideas about literature and art but also traditional education, family life, organized religion, and the state.
In this, the first biography of Tolstoy in twenty years, Rosamund Bartlett draws extensively on key Russian sources, including much fascinating material made available since the collapse of the Soviet Union. She sheds light on Tolstoy s remarkable journey from callow youth to writer to prophet; discusses his troubled relationship with his wife, Sonya; and vividly evokes the Russian landscapes Tolstoy so loved and the turbulent times in which he lived. Above all, Bartett gives us an eloquent portrait of the brilliant, maddening, and contrary man who has once again been discovered by a new generation of readers.
