Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Begun in 1851, when Tolstoy was twenty-three and serving as a cadet in the Russian army, Childhood, the first part of Tolstoys first novel, won immediate praise from Turgenev and others, and marked Tolstoys emergence as a major writer. Its originality was striking, as Tolstoy sought to communicate with great immediacy the “poetry” of childhood—the intense emotions, confusions, and fears attendant upon a young boy, Nikolenka, as he grows up. In the years following, Boyhood and Youth appeared (a fourth volume was planned but never executed), each replete with psychological and philosophical subtleties hitherto unknown in Russian literature. In Scammells resplendent translation, Childhood, Boyhood, and Youth remains one of Tolstoys major works.

Synopsis:

The only available edition of distinguished Russian scholar Michael Scammell's translation of Tolstoy's most significant early work.<P>This semiautobiographical trilogy established Tolstoy's reputation in Russia as a major writer. This edition includes newly commissioned endnotes.
