Tolstoi, Lev - Complete Works of Tolstoy - Language: English, Complete Works of - Format: ePub
Believed by many to be the greatest novelist the world has known, the Russian Master’s work is of paramount importance. This definitive Edition of Tolstoy’s oeuvre has every translated novel, short story, novella and play written (More) by Leo Tolstoy. One of our most popular eBooks – now you can own the great Master of Realist fiction. (Version 3)
Tolstoi, Lev - La tormenta de nieve - Language: Spanish, Novel - Format: ePub
En un momento de notable crisis espiritual, Tolstói, basándose en la experiencia real de un viaje que emprendiera dos años antes, escribe La tormenta de nieve (1856). Con una muy fuerte carga metafísica, nos describe, al amparo de (More) las condiciones externas, un sueño y la presencia de la muerte, el punto de inflexión entre el conformismo y el coraje. Memorable y entrañablemente poética, esta narración a medio camino entre la alegoría y el diario nos habla de la toma de conciencia de uno mismo y de sus retos.
Tolstoi, Lev - ¿Cuánta tierra necesita un hombre? - Language: Spanish, Short Stories - Format: ePub
Escrito en 1886, ¿Cuánta tierra necesita un hombre? es una modernísima parábola sobre la ambición del ser humano. Pajom es un campesino al que ninguna extensión de tierra satisface: cuanta más tiene, más necesita. Al conocer que (More) los habitantes de una lejana región, los bashkirios, le ofrecen tanta tierra como pueda recorrer en un día, no lo dudará e intentará abarcar la mayor cantidad posible... La prosa de Tolstói —decía Nabokov— late al ritmo de nuestro corazón. Elena Odriozola (Segundo Premio Nacional de Ilustración 2006) ha captado ese pulso narrativo y nos lleva con sus imágenes a la tierra que vio nacer a Pajom, permitiéndonos acompañarle en su viaje por la estepa rusa, marcado por el ritmo de su ambición. Las vacas serán testigo de ese afán.
Tolstoi, Lev - Guerra e pace - Language: Italian, Novel - Format: ePub
Guerra e pace è un romanzo storico di Lev Tolstoj. Il romanzo ha per sfondo storico gli eventi che avevano dominato i primi due decenni del secolo XIX, determinando la penetrazione in Russia delle idee della Rivoluzione francese. (More) Si intrecciano le vicende di due famiglie russe: i Bolkonskij e i Rostov, unificate da un filo conduttore rappresentato da un personaggio, il conte Pierre Bezuchov, nel quale è evidente la personificazione dell'alter ego dell'autore. Attraverso la grandiosa rappresentazione di tali vicende, dosata da un realismo che stabilisce un miracoloso equilibrio tra il mondo psicologico dei personaggi e quello esteriore dei fatti della natura, Tolstoj prosegue la sua ricerca delle ragioni e dei fini della vita, ricerca serena, profonda e soprattutto vera.
Tolstoi, Lev - War and Peace - Language: English, Novel - Format: ePub, iSilo
”War and Peace” is a panoramic novel: It is its own justification, and perhaps needs no introduction. It always reminds the translator of a broad and mighty river flowing onward with all the majesty of Fate. On its surface, float (More) swiftly by logs and stumps, cakes of ice, perhaps drowned cattle or men from regions far above. These floating straws, insignificant in themselves, tell the current. Once embark upon it, and it is impossible to escape the onward force that moves you so relentlessly. What landscapes you pass through, what populous towns, what gruesome defiles, what rapids, what cataracts! The water may be turbid, or it may flow translucent and pure, – but still it rushes on. Such to me is “War and Peace.” “War and Peace,” like all of Count Tolstoi’s works, is a mighty protest against war. There is no arguing in it about the waste, and the demoralization, and the cruelty, and the unmanliness of it, but, like all Russian argument, it is by vivid pictures such as no one can resist. The present translation has been made from the original Russian. Tolstoi has been felicitously called “the Russian Rembrandt.” It is not fair to reproduce Rembrandt as a Teniers. One may be sometimes tempted to substitute the curved line of beauty for the straight line of duty, or soften a harsh silhouette, but beyond certain unavoidable issues of the sort necessary for reproducing the impression given by the original, the translator ought to be as faithful as possible. Here the old law of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, repudiated by Count Tolstoi, ought to have a new application.
Tolstoi, Lev - La sonata a Kreutzer - Language: Italian, Novel - Format: ePub, iSilo
Salutato con fervente ammirazione o condannato senza mezze misure, quasi ovunque censurato o vietato come letteratura indecente, libro controverso già prima che Tolstoj lo ultimasse, frutto di numerose revisioni da parte (More) dell’autore, “La Sonata a Kreutzer” dà adito a tante possibili letture ed è stato scritto su di essa un fiume di pagine nel corso degli anni. Storia potente, angosciante, la sua pubblicazione rappresentò un significativo evento intellettuale in tutto il mondo. Infiammò un dibattito esplosivo in Europa, America e Asia su questioni che poi sono state chiamate la “questione sessuale” e il “problema donna”. Oltre che mostrare l’onestà inflessibile di un grande artista, la complessità delle relazioni, il sesso, il matrimonio nei loro contesti culturali e religiosi, illumina gli ideali cristiani allora febbrili di Tolstoj, i suoi conflitti con la lussuria e le ipocrisie del matrimonio del XIX secolo.

Tolstoi, Lev - Guerra y Paz - Language: Spanish, Novel - Format: ePub, iSilo
Guerra y paz (en ruso Война и мир, Voyná i mir), también conocida como La guerra y la paz, es una novela del escritor ruso León Tolstói (1828–1910) que comenzó a escribir en una época de convalecencia tras romperse el brazo por (More) caer del caballo en una partida de caza en 1864. Primero se publicó como fascículos de revista (1865–1869). Guerra y Paz es considerada como la obra cumbre del autor junto con su otro trabajo posterior, Anna Karénina (1873–1877).
Tolstoi, Lev - Ana Karenina - Language: Spanish, Novel - Format: ePub
Ana Karénina, novela del escritor ruso León Tolstói publicada en 1877. La novela es considerada una las oras maestras del Realismo. El personaje de Ana Karénina esta inspirado de Aleksandr Pushkin.Muchos críticos calificaron la (More) obra como un “romance de alta sociedad”, Fiódor Dostoyevski declaró que era una “obra de arte”. Vladímir Nabókov secundó esta opinión, admirando sobre todo la “magia del estilo de Tolstói” y la figura del tren, que se introduce ya en los primeros capítulos (los niños jugando con un tren de juguete), desarrollada en capítulos siguientes (la pesadilla de Anna) hasta llegar al majestuoso final.

Two love stories are set against the backdrop of high society in Tsarist Russia. Anna awakes from a loveless marriage to find herself drawn irresistibly to the dashing cavalry officer, Count Vronsky.

Through troubled courtships, reconciliations, marriage and the birth of each one’s first child, Anna and Levin experience joy and despair as they each struggle to find their place in the world and meaning for their lives.
