About the Author: Leo Tolstoy

Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy (Russian: Лев Николаевич Толстой; 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.

Il principe Nechljudov riconosce nella prostituta Ljubaša, accusata in un processo per omicidio, la contadina Katjuša Maslova, che egli aveva sedotto dieci anni prima, provocandone la rovina. Oppresso dai sensi di colpa, si adopera per salvare la donna e, con lei, la propria anima. Da un «affare giudiziario» realmente avvenuto prende spunto l’ultimo grande romanzo di Tolstoj, che è soprattutto una riflessione sull’ineluttabilità del male, sull’ingiustizia universale della sofferenza, alla quale l’uomo può opporre solo la prospettiva di un riscatto individuale, come quello che troveranno, ciascuno a modo proprio, Katjuša e Nechljudov.
