grey end-papers; Best known as the creator of such superb characters as Pierre Bezukhov and Anna Karenina, Tolstoy was as much a philosopher as a novelist. From the entries in his early diaries through to the short stories and great novels he was attempting to answer an extraordinary range of fundamental questions. It as in his personal diaries that Tolstoy first attempted to develop a 'literary psychology' with which to reveal those thoughts and feelings we conceal from ourselves. Then in his early work he invented the interior monologue to expose the psychology of his characters. The use of this technique reached its height in ‘War and Peace’ and ‘Anna Karenina.’ Tolstoy was constantly searching in his life & in his art for a comprehensive vision – a vision equal to ‘the confusion of life'. This challenging new study sets out to do justice both to the imaginative drama and to the intellectual penetration of that search. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 184 pages.
