    Léon Tolstoï PDF Ì Paperback léon epub, tolstoï pdf, Léon Tolstoï KindleTolstoy stars here as the villainous hero of his own life story my abiding memory is the sense that Troyat didn't much like his subject admittedly this memory coming from his description of Tolstoy's wedding he married the daughter of a woman he had once asked to marry when he was a young man and having been turned down by the mother popped up years later to carry off the daughter by which time he had made a name for himself as a writer but had also been treated several times for syphilis had lost all his teethview spoiler possibly an effect of the use of Mercury to treat the syphilis hide spoiler

    Léon Tolstoï PDF Ì Paperback léon epub, tolstoï pdf, Léon Tolstoï KindleOne of the most extensive biogrpahies I have ever read this book is monumental in scope but precise in its detail Suddenly you see Tolstoy's life like he must have and his actions begin to make sense in their own context instead of seeming crazy like they might to someone who just plotted his life on a calendar Really remarkable I'd never read any tolstoy until I took a survey class my Freshman year the Life and Art of Lev Tolstoy with the head of our Slavic Langua

    Léon Tolstoï PDF Ì Paperback léon epub, tolstoï pdf, Léon Tolstoï KindleFor all of its size this biography of Tolstoy becomes increasingly claustrophobic as it tracks Tolstoy's intellectual development; Tolstoy's intellect seems always to have been driven by guilt but to have progressed from an intellect that could tolerate guilt to one that could not Thus Tolstoy became increasingly judgmental and paralyzed and to read an intimate portrayal of his later years becomes excruciating even setting aside the chaotic pressures provided by his wife family and disciples The reader trusts Troyat as he hangs his finely woven tale on a solid structure of primary sources but the reader is aware that any biographer of Tolstoy will have to take a side in presenting these final awful years Was she truly crazy Did he truly love her Was he duped by his discipl

    Léon Tolstoï PDF Ì Paperback léon epub, tolstoï pdf, Léon Tolstoï KindleTroyat's 700 plus pages biography reads like a Tolstoy novel It follows Tolstoy's life in detail uoting extensively from his and his family's copious diaries His marriage which started happily enough and then turned into a nightmare for both him and his wife was morbidly fascinating It was like watching a slow train wreck Altogether a satisfiying if rather lengthy portrait of a complicated genius

    Léon Tolstoï PDF Ì Paperback léon epub, tolstoï pdf, Léon Tolstoï KindleWhen you read about what your favorite author's life was like in real life you get a better picture of how they became who they are and a little on how the characters came to life Interesting how a lot of those characters match people they knew in real life

    Léon Tolstoï PDF Ì Paperback léon epub, tolstoï pdf, Léon Tolstoï Kindleimmensely appreciated both War and Peace and Anna Karenina in recent years I picked this book up to try and get acuainted with the great authorOh dearTolstoy was a truly awful person Having had a couple of extraordinary literary successes he set himself up as a political prophet and became the centre of a cult following which does not appear to have embarrassed him in the slightest His disciples were in constant conflict with his wife and family as to who controlled access to the great man and who could profit from his literary endeavours He was entirely capable of writing an essay on how important it is to put sex aside only to then immediately go and imp

    Léon Tolstoï PDF Ì Paperback léon epub, tolstoï pdf, Léon Tolstoï KindleTroyat is the greatest biographer I've read and not just because he's covered pretty much all of the Russian writers and tsars though yes that was pretty swell of him to do He doesn't just spit out facts he tells a story I only wish of his bios were available in English

    Léon Tolstoï PDF Ì Paperback léon epub, tolstoï pdf, Léon Tolstoï KindleAdmittedly I had no intention of reading this whole thing and I didn't ; rather I was interested in his background and conversion I did get sucked right into the detailed and engaging narrative though and if I had time I certainly would have gone cover to cover Troyat was excellent as was the translator and Tolstoy was definitely interesting Not good but interesting His odd conversion is much less of a surprise to me now that I know he was always a bit of a psychotic and arrogant individual

    Léon Tolstoï PDF Ì Paperback léon epub, tolstoï pdf, Léon Tolstoï KindleA remarkable insight into the contradictory whimsical old “Wizard of Yasnaya Polyana” Troyat reveals to the reader with remarkable tact the inner workings of the author of War Peace and Anna Karenina He expertly navigates the vast narrative that is Tolstoy’s life to create a starkly beautiful by its very nature but ultimately unadorned testimony to the authorThe lengthy book reflecting of course the vastness of the subject’s life was a moving journey from start to finish with the only other experience to which I can compare it being finishing War Peace itself 55
