Book: Tolstoy L. «The Kreutzer Sonata and Other Stories»

The Kreutzer Sonata and Other Stories

Серия: "Penguin Classics"

The violent spiritual crisis in Tolstoy's life that inspired his last period of creativity produced the stories in this compelling and startling collection. They portray the multifaceted nature of desire, from idealistic romance to sexual jealousy, from desperate lust to relentless longing. "The K reutzer Sonata" caused a public sensation with its indictment of so-called Christian marriage, a theme echoed in" Family Happiness." In" The Devil," a young man finds it impossible to resist a beautiful peasant woman with whom he had an affair before his marriage. And" Father Sergius" shows a man going to increasingly desperate ends in order to avoid the temptations of the flesh. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1, 700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.
