Sophia Behrs Tolstoy was introduced to Leo Tolstoy in 1862 when she was 18 years old and Tolstoy was 16 years her senior. On 17 September 1862 the couple became formally engaged and married a week later in Moscow. The Tolstoys had 13 children, eight of whom survived childhood. Sophia acted as copyist of War and Peace, copying and editing the manuscript seven times from beginning to end at home at night by candlelight. It was an increasingly troubled marriage -- the couple argued over Tolstoy's desire to give away all his private property -- and her diaries reflect all the turmoil, trials and tribulations as the wife of a famous, and famously opinionated, man. Her diaries also shed some light on the status of women in Russia as the 20th century approached

Tolstoy and Tolstaya : a portrait of a life in letters by Leo Tolstoy( Book )

2 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lev Nikolaevich wrote approximately 10,000 letters over his lifetime -- 840 of these addressed to his wife. Letters written by (or to) Sofia Andreevna over her lifetime also numbered in the thousands. When Tolstaya published Lev Nikolaevich's letters to her, she declined to include any of her 644 letters to her husband. The absence of half their correspondence obscured the underlying significance of many of his comments to her and occasionally led the reader to wrong conclusions. The current volume, in presenting a constantly unfolding dialogue between the Tolstoy-Tolstaya couple -- mostly for the first time in English translation -- offers unique insights into the minds of two fascinating individuals over the 48-year period of their conjugal life. Not only do we 'peer into the souls' of these deep-thinking correspondents by penetrating their immediate and extended family life -- full of joy and sadness, bliss and tragedy but we also observe, as in a generation-spanning chronicle, a variety of scenes of Russian society, from rural peasants to lords and ladies. This hard-cover, illustrated critical edition includes a foreword by Vladimir Il'ich Tolstoy (Lev Tolstoy's great-great-grandson), introduction, maps, genealogy, as well as eleven additional letters by Sofia Andreevna Tolstaya published here for the very first time in either Russian or English translation. It is a beautiful complement to My Life, a collection of Sofia Tolstaya's memoirs published in English in 2010 at the University of Ottawa Press
