Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

By Leo Tolstoy

Entre los grandes escritores del siglo XIX, Lev Nicoláievich Tolstói (1828-1910) ha sido calificado como genio único, sin equivalente en ningún otro país. Hijo de un acaudalado terrateniente que le dejó una fortuna inmensa, se lanzó por los angeles vía de los angeles disipación hasta que su participación como oficial durante l. a. guerra de Crimea le hizo volverse hacia unos valores humanistas y continuar una vocación literaria en l. a. que ya se había iniciado antes de los angeles guerra. El cambio afectó a sus convicciones espirituales más íntimas y desembocaría, al ultimate de su vida, en una concern ethical y religiosa que derivó hacia un cristianismo evangélico radical. Al comienzo de esta etapa escribe Ana Karenina, en l. a. que Tolstói refleja su visión de l. a. sociedad urbana, símbolo de los vicios y el pecado, en oposición a l. a. vida sana de l. a. naturaleza y del campo. De ese mundo necio y patológico de los angeles ciudad es víctima Ana Karenina, que se ha convertido en una figura clave de l. a. literatura common.

His mother died when he was three years old, and his father, a doctor and inventor, took him to live with his paternal grandmother and aunt.

He spent his evenings on night-rounds, talking with the prisoners and gathering their tales. Despite the small luxuries, the brutality of prison life was difficult for him; his letters from this time display a keen understanding of the suffering surrounding him combined with a healthy disgust for conditions he viewed as less than human. In addition, he felt a good deal of shame and humiliation. Most important to the literary record, however, he spent a good deal of time writing. 舠After most of his work was finished and we had eaten our midnight supper, he would begin to write,舡 reported a night guard from the prison.
