Before long, though, he puts himself on trial and condemns all of upper-class and official Russia. Meanwhile, once convicted, Maslova evolves from prostitute to revolutionary.

At half the size of 'War and Peace' and two thirds the length of 'Anna Karenina' Tolstoy's Resurrection is every bit as epic, and probably his most controversial novel that appears to have strong political and religious implications as the backbone to the story, and what a story. A later Novel for Tolstoy written in 1899 under the leadership of Tsar Nicholas II and an empire repressing political opposition in the centre and on the far left. Starting out as a courtroom drama we soon get drawn int ...more

«Οταν διαβάζεις Τουργκιένιεφ ξέρεις ότι διαβάζεις Τουργκιένεφ. Οταν όμως διαβάζεις Τολστόι, αρχίζεις και δεν μπορείς να σταματήσεις».

Ένα υπέροχο,ανατρεπτικό μυθιστόρημα γεμάτο οργή και πάθος και αγάπη για τον συνάνθρωπο που αναφέρεται στη μοναχική πορεία προς την ΑΝΑΣΤΑΣΗ.

Την ανάσταση ως έννοια προσωπικής κάθαρσης,συνειδητοποίησης και μοναχικού ταξιδιού.

What moved me the most in this novel is: how true is what Tolstoy says about the judicial system, even in our world of today. And this is not just in France, but all over the world. When I read those sections on judicial errors, imprisonment for lack of official papers, inhuman treatment of prisoners, and the fallacy of the 'correctional system', I really had the impression that very little has changed since his time.

But, before I get carried out, here are some more points that also moved me dee

I have NO idea why this book is less popular then "War and Peace" or "Anna Karenina". Zero ideas. Look at goodreaders: "AK" - 25,866 ratings, "WaP" - 11,258 ratings, "Resurrection" - 691 ratings. This is so unfair. I would never risk to write an actual review on this text, but reading it was one of the biggest turning points in my life at some point.

Dear Tolstoy:

I heart you.




I had some reservations about reading this book because I knew going into it that it was the last novel he wrote, and I know that in his later years he became especially religious and it showed in his writing, and jeez, do we really need more of that sort of preachiness?

Apparently we do.

Resurrection isn't as popular as Tolstoy's other two major novels, Anna Karenina and War and Peace, nor is it as long as those others. Apparently when it was

“Resurrección” es la última novela que escribió Tolstoi en 1899 y la tercera más extensa después de sus obras magnas, “Guerra y Paz” y “Anna Karenina”. Siempre la literatura rusa ha sido una de mis preferidas y sigue siendo Fiódor Dostoievski, de quien leí toda su obra uno de mis escritores predilectos. Agrego también a esta lista de escritores eslavos a los geniales Alexandr Pushkin, Nikólai Gógol, Mijaíl Bulgákov y en menor medida a Iván Turguéniev y Antón Chejov.

شعر بالمسؤولية عن تغير حياتها الى ما صارت وعليه ويبدا العمل على الدفاع عنها والتكفير عن ذنبه.
خلال الرواية يتعرض تولستوي بشيء من السخرية الى حياة الطبقة العليا في المجتمع الروسي وكذلك الى القضاء الروسي وطريقة العمل في المحاكم واختيار القضاة والمحلفين.

So what is this book, Tolstoy's last novel (published in 1899), about? Five things:
1. The brutality and injustice of both the legal and prison system.
2. The grimness of life for the peasantry in Russia in the early decades of the 1800s.
3. Land ownership.
4. Religion.
5. The importance of compassion and empathy for others.

The book is clearly written as a polemic! As such it was too preachy for my taste. Knowing that Tolstoy at midlife transformed himself from a dissipate aristocrat into a peniten

البعث …..ليو تولستوي

عندما تقرأ لتولستوي فإنك تقرأ الإنسان،بخيره وشره،بعهره وشرفه،بجبنه وشجاعته،تقرأ عن ظروف المجتمع القاهرة واستسلام الفرد لها بخنوع،تقرأ عن أزمان لم تعشها،وحضارات لم تحضرها،وثقافات اختلفت عنك وتشابهت.

عظيم الروس،وواحد من أهم الكتاب الذين أبدعوا في فن الرواية،والذي انحاز للإنسان دائمًا وأعلنه قضية أزلية له يدافع عنه ويعرض صوره المختلفة،لا لشيء إلا لمساعدة الإنسان وانتشاله من عثرته الحضارية وصخبها،وكل ذلك انطلاقًا من واقع مجتمعه الروسي،وكل ذلك كان نابع من إيمانه العميق،والذي لم يعل

“The whole trouble lies in that people think that there are conditions excluding the necessity of love in their intercourse with man, but such conditions do not exist. Things may be treated without love; one may chop wood, make bricks, forge iron without love, but one can no more deal with people without love than one can handle bees without care.”

The last major novel by Tolstoy. According to Wikipedia, Vladimir Nabakov heaped superlatives upon "Anna Karenina", but questioned the reputation of "War and Peace", and sharply criticized "Resurrection" and "The Kreutzer Sonata". My opinion is the exact opposite.

To me, this is a more mature and riveting work than "Anna Karenina", because it contains deeper spiritual and social insights, the upshot of the author's personal struggles and growth in the intervening years. In "Anna Karenina", we wit

Ultimul roman al lui Tolstoi este inspirat dintr-un caz real de la sfârşitul secolului al XIX-lea. Urmând parcă traiectoria trasată de cel din urmă şi cel mai pregnant roman dostoievskian, "Fraţii Karamazov", autopsia "Învierii" se deschide cu un proces în care destinele a doi oameni se reintersectează într-o manieră ciudată. Prinţul Dimitri Nehiliudov, figură impozantă a aristocraţiei în declin, îşi îndeplineşte sarcina obştească de a fi jurat într-un proces, pe vremea când, în materia justiţie ...more
Αυτές τις δέκα μέρες που πέρασα με τον Τολστόι τις βρήκα από τις πιο απολαυστικές και χαλαρωτικές που έχω περάσει με κάποιο ανάγνωσμα. Θα μπορούσε κανείς να παρομοιάσει την γραφή του με ένα ζεστό φλιτζάνι τσάι μετά από μια κρύα και δύσκολη μέρα. Ζεστός και εγκάρδιος λόγος που προβληματίζει και «αγγαλιάζει» όποιον ασχοληθεί μαζί του, η ιστορία της ψυχικής αυτής Ανάστασης του πρίγκιπα Νεχλιούντοβ θα μου λείψει πολύ τα επόμενα βράδια...

This book has been described as preachy in tone and outdated in content and I couldn't disagree more. One of the major themes of this book is the difficulty of living a moral life in a society that makes it difficult to achieve life's satisfactions and remain moral. In exploring this theme, you get not only the wonderful social commentary Tolstoy is so known for, but also a synthesis of the moral philosophies that characterize his later work. I know that a lot of people might not agree with Tols ...more

Incensed Indictment of Criminal Justice and Penal System: More Sermon Than Story

Leo Tolstoy's last major novel (1899) is a twilight indictment of Russia's criminal justice and penal systems. The novel opens with Russian prince Dmitri N. ("PDN") serving on a jury in a criminal trial of 3 peasants accused of poisoning and robbing a man. PDN recognizes Ms. Maslova, one of the two accused women as a young maid he deflowered when both were teens a decade earlier during a visit to his aunts' home. The

رحلة تخلد في الذاكرة. بداية رائعة ونهاية عبقرية. نشرت الرواية قبل الثورة في روسيا بثماني عشرة عاماً عرضت سوء الأحوال الاجتماعية، وفساد منظومة القضاء. وفساد الأخلاق. فهي ثورة على الأوضاع آنذاك أحاطها تولستوي برداء من إيمان وتفكر.

Description: Resurrection (1899) is the last of Tolstoy's major novels. It tells the story of a nobleman's attempt to redeem the suffering his youthful philandering inflicted on a peasant girl who ends up a prisoner in Siberia. Tolstoy's vision of redemption, achieved through loving forgiveness and his condemnation of violence, dominate the novel. An intimate, psychological tale of guilt, anger, and forgiveness, Resurrection is at the same time a panoramic description of social life in Russia at ...more

If you can get past the annoying main character and his epiphanies this is a really interesting look (albeit obviously sensationalised for the sake of propaganda) at the criminal justice system in Russia at the turn of last century, as well as the obscene gap in living standards between the rich and poor.

“One of the commonest and most generally accepted delusions is that every man can be qualified in some particular way -- said to be kind, wicked, stupid, energetic, apathetic, and so on. People are not like that. We may say of a man that he is more often kind than cruel, more often wise than stupid, more often energetic than apathetic or vice versa; but it could never be true to say of one man that he is kind or wise, and of another that he is wicked or stupid. Yet we are always classifying mankind in this way. And it is wrong. Human beings are like rivers; the water is one and the same in all of them but every river is narrow in some places, flows swifter in others; here it is broad, there still, or clear, or cold, or muddy or warm. It is the same with men. Every man bears within him the germs of every human quality, and now manifests one, now another, and frequently is quite unlike himself, while still remaining the same man.” 51 likes
