Excerpt from Tolstoy: His Life and Writings

M. Halpérine-Kaminsky tells us that Maxime Gorky once said in his hearing - "Far from being carved out of one block Tolstoy was infinitely various and multiple. Each time that I saw him he appeared to me a new personality" - a judgment on the great Russian that Englishmen particularly should bear in mind.

In this brief sketch of Tolstoy's life and works I am under obligation to various authorities, cited in the Appendix, especially to the "Life" by Mr. Aylmer Maude, whose work is indispensable to those who view Tolstoy from other standpoints.
