    1. Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy Russian commonly Leo Tolstoy in Anglophone countries was a Russian writer who primarily wrote novels and short stories Later in life, he also wrote plays and essays His two most famous works, the novels War and Peace and Anna Karenina, are acknowledged as two of the greatest novels of all time and a pinnacle of realist fiction Many consider Tolstoy to have been one of the world s greatest novelists Tolstoy is equally known for his complicated and paradoxical persona and for his extreme moralistic and ascetic views, which he adopted after a moral crisis and spiritual awakening in the 1870s, after which he also became noted as a moral thinker and social reformer.His literal interpretation of the ethical teachings of Jesus, centering on the Sermon on the Mount, caused him in later life to become a fervent Christian anarchist and anarcho pacifist His ideas on nonviolent resistance, expressed in such works as The Kingdom of God Is Within You, were to have a profound impact on such pivotal twentieth century figures as Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Some can agree about the religion, the choices being made, and even the people's words. There are mu [...]

    5. These are what Tolstoy thought of as great literature once he decided his own extraordinary novels were worthless. These were basically re-written folk tales.

They promote Biblical values for the most part. But surprisingly there are very positive portrayals of other religions (e.g "The Coffeehouse of Surat"), espe [...]

    6. I read part V, the folktales, and I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND these folktales as some of the best stories I have ever read. You can find them online at the Christian Ethereal library.
