Condition: See description


Grant Richards, London, 1903 Translated from the Russian by Louise Maude; Volume 24 of the Revised Edition "completely revised, and with an appendix containing fresh matter"; 22 page preface by Aylmer Maude; Hardback: green cloth lettered in white on spine; Covers unevenly faded and showing some wear, especially round spine, end-papers spotted and bearing the signatures of two previous owners, text clean.. Book.

Two irresistibly intimate masterworks by one of Russia?s greatest writers Published here in a marvelous new translation, Resurrection tells the story of a Russian nobleman who comes face to face with the sins of his past. When Prince Nekhlyudov serves on a jury at the trial of a prostitute arrested for murder, he is horrified to discover that the accused is a woman he had once seduced and abandoned. His guilt at the central role he played in her ruin soon leads him on a quest for forgiveness as he follows her into the prisons of Siberia. Conceived on an epic scale, this novel is both a trenchant denunciation of government, aristocracy, the judicial system, and the Church as well as a highly personal statement of Tolstoy?s belief in human redemption and spiritual development.
