Overview

The title novella in this collection of stories from literary master Leo Tolstoy, The Kreutzer Sonata, unleashed a firestorm of controversy upon its original publication. The story seeks to unpack the complex relationship between sex and love, and in it, Tolstoy makes a number of arguments about intimacy that were considered shocking in the context of nineteenth-century morals and mores. This collection is a wonderful introduction to Tolstoy's work for new readers, or for confirmed fans looking for some of Tolstoy's lesser-known works.
