Overview

Serving on a jury at the trial of a prostitute arrested for murder, Prince Nekhlyudov is horrified to discover that the accused is a woman he had once loved, seduced and then abandoned when she was a young servant girl. Racked with guilt at realizing he was the cause of her ruin, he determines to appeal for her release or give up his own way of life and follow her. Conceived on an epic scale, "Resurrection" portrays a vast panorama of Russian life, taking us from the underworld of prison cells and warders to the palaces of countesses. It is also an angry denunciation of government, the upper classes, the judicial system and the Church, and a highly personal statement of Tolstoy's belief in human redemption.

I think this book is an excellent synopsis of what goes on in a mans mind as his conscience struggles with his humanity. Tolstoy, by this stage in his life, has a firm grasp of mans depravity and the ramifications of it. This book can be very helpful in realizing that all of our actions have consequences!!! We are not just out to acheive our own pleasures. Life is about our eternal soul, and how we live here on this earth determines our eternal destiny. Please read this great work.

She looked over at Emberpaw. "Maybe Lightening can take you out for your Warrior assessment."
