Resurrection : a novel in three parts by Leo Tolstoy( Book )

142 editions published between 1899 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,902 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A prostitute stands accused of murder. Prince Nekhlyudov serves on the jury at her trial. He recognizes her as the innocent young girl he once loved, seduced and abandoned. The story is compelling, the telling of it as masterful and exuberant as only the author of War and Peace and Anna Karenina could make it. But the setting of Resurrection is the underworld, and Tolstoy turns a highly critical eye on the law, the penal system and, above all, the Church. With its theme of fallen man and an emphatic regeneration, the novel presents a mature panorama of human life, shot through with searing spiritual intensity

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A famous legend surrounding the creation of Anna Karenina tells us that Tolstoy began writing a cautionary tale about adultery and ended up by falling in love with his magnificent heroine. It is rare to find a reader of the book who doesn't experience the same kind of emotional upheaval: Anna Karenina is filled with major and minor characters who exist in their own right and fully embody their mid-nineteenth-century Russian milieu, but it still belongs entirely to the woman whose name it bears, whose portrait is one of the truest ever made by a writer
Twenty-three tales by Leo Tolstoy( Book )

39 editions published between 1906 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'Twenty-three tales', we see Tolstoy's love of the short story, whether for children or adults; and witness the secret of simplicity and transparency of style, so evident in the great Russian writers. The children's stories remind us of Tolstoy's life-long passion for the schooling and education of peasant children. Of the adult stories, some draw on traditional Russian folk tales, breathe the air old peasant wisdom, and take us deep into the land of snow, bears, heartache and vodka. Other stories reflect Tolstoy's political and moral concerns, such as war, alcohol and greed. 'The artist of the future, ' wrote Tolstoy, 'will understand that to compose a fairy tale; a little song which will touch; a lullaby or a riddle which will entertain; a jest which will amuse or draw a sketch such as will delight dozens of generations or millions of children and adults, is incomparably more important and more fruitful than to compose a novel, or a symphony, or paint a picture of the kind which diverts some members of the wealthy classes for a short time and is then for ever forgotten. 'Work while ye have the light, ' is Tolstoy in teaching mode. The opening scene is an aristocratic dinner party, at which all the guests declare themselves dissatisfied with their dissolute and useless lives; but find a thousand different reasons why nothing should change. There follows a moral tale, set in the 1st Century AD, when the new Christian sect was just getting noticed by the prevailing Roman Empire. It tells the story of two school friends, Pamphylius and Julius, who take different paths in life; but whose paths keep crossing. Pamphylius joins the Christians, living poor in community, while Julius acquires status and power. Here Tolstoy gives us his picture of authentic Christianity; and gives Julius a choice. -- Simon Parke, author of The One Minute Mystic -- taken from the OverDrive website
