Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"It is a kind of shrapnel shell of a novel", wrote one critic of Resurrection; and indeed, in its themes of love, passion and death, it represents the great imaginative synthesis of Tolstoyism.<P>A prostitute stands accused of murder. Prince Nekhlyudov serves on the jury at her trial. He recognizes her as the innocent young girl he once loved, seduced and abandoned. The story is compelling, the telling of it as masterful and exuberant as only the author of War and Peace and Anna Karenina could make it. But the setting of Resurrection is the underworld, and Tolstoy turns a highly critical eye on the law, the penal system and, above all, the Church.<P>With its theme of fallen man and an emphatic regeneration, the novel presents a mature panorama of human life, shot through with searing spiritual intensity.

Synopsis:

A psychological tale of guilt, anger, and forgiveness, 'Resurrection' provides a panoramic view of Russian social life at the end of the 19th century and expresses the author's contempt for the social injustices of the world in which he lived.

Michelle Wilczewski, May 8, 2010 (view all comments by Michelle Wilczewski)
After having learned more about the life of Tolstoy I became obsessed and found this unheard of novel. It is a mind opening experience that left me wanting more. His philosophy on humanity permeates throughout and is just as relevant today as it was 100 years ago. Taking his readers to a place they may not have expected to go we arrive at the doorstep of a time so different from our own but it many ways just like it. The main character Prince N. goes on an inner journey that takes hime place he never expected and comes out the better for it.
