Resurrection by Leo Tolstoy (ebook)

Resurrection by Leo Tolstoy (ebook)

 

Description

Release Special Price

Resurrection (Russian: Воскресение, Voskresyeniye), first published in 1899, was the last novel written by Leo Tolstoy.

The book is the last of his major long fiction works published in his lifetime. Tolstoy intended the novel as an exposition of injustice of man-made laws and the hypocrisy of institutionalized church. It was first published serially in the magazine Niva as an effort to raise funds for the resettlement of the Dukhobors.

The story is about a nobleman named Dmitri Ivanovich Nekhlyudov, who seeks redemption for a sin committed years earlier. His brief affair with a maid resulted in her being fired and ending up in prostitution. The book treats his attempts to help her out of her current misery, but also focuses on his personal mental and moral struggle.

Framed for murder, the maid, Maslova, is convicted by mistake, sent to Siberia. Nekhlyudov goes to visit her in prison, meets other prisoners, hears their stories, and slowly comes to realize that all around his charmed and golden aristocratic world, yet invisible to it, is a much larger world of oppression, misery and barbarism. Story after story he hears and even sees of people chained without cause, beaten without cause, immured in dungeons for life without cause and all punctuated like lightning flashes by startling vignettes a ten year old boy sleeping in a lake of st from an overflowing latrine because there is no other place on the prison floor, but clinging in a vain search for love to the leg of the man next to him until the book achieves the bizarre intensity of a horrific fever dream.
