Their virtues lie in local colour, brilliant characterization and dialogue, along with strong narrative interest linked to important ideas and meanings, most of which will re-emerge in the later works. This undervalued area of a great man's writing deserves closer attention, and will reward the reader with unforgettable individuals, issues and situations подробнее

Великий гуманист Лев Николаевич Толстой (1828—1910) видел свою писательскую задачу в исследовании человеческой природы, в желании постичь сокровенные законы сознания, которым должна двигать жажда нравственного совершенствования. Своеобразие прозы Л.Н. Толстого определено непосредственной чистотой его этического чувства и характером его таланта, подвергающего литературных героев особой форме психологического анализа — "диалектике души". Именно эти свойства, обогащаясь и видоизменяясь, неизменно присутствуют в его творчестве и определяют природу большинства его произведений. В настоящее издание вошли избранные произведения Л.Н. Толстого, среди которых такие признанные шедевры, как повесть "смерть Ивана Ильича", рассказы "Холстомер", "Хозяин и работник", "После бала" и другие
