Book Description:
Tolstoy wrote some of the most disquieting short stories the world has known these three are no exception. Here, the duels and duality of man and woman are played out in tortured and sometimes tragic drama. Above all, the characters featured in these pages bring to life universal truths for the human condition; truths that Tolstoy weaves with an almost unrivaled skill. 'Father Sergius' is preoccupied with the material desire for the flesh, while 'The Kreutzer Sonata' caused a public sensation for its scathing indictment of marriage. Tolstoy had become convinced that 'Christian marriage' was an impossibility, and in both Sonata and The Devil he launches a tirade against human sexuality and the humiliating sexual ties that bind men to women. Together these three stories provide a picture of a man obsessed with questions of moral, sexual, and religious ambiguity, his treatment of female sexuality still having a resonance today.
