Resurrection

by Leo Tolstoy

It is a sombre but tremendously powerful novel touching upon many tragedies and problems of life in the Russia of to-day. It shows the genius of "Anna Karenina" blended with a more mature comprehension of human life and character. The "Great Master of the North" has written in "Resurrection" a harrowing yet absorbing story with all his old fervor, and with a deeper and more searching spiritual understanding. The theme is that of a woman's life weighed down and well nigh extinguished by the most terrible misfortunes and tragedies, but finally, through the power of love, resurrected and made new. (Translated by Mrs. Louise Maude.)
