Beschreibung:

A master of realistic fiction, Leo Tolstoy is widely regarded as one of the world's greatest novelists. He is best known for his two longest works, 'War and Peace' and 'Anna Karenina', commonly regarded as among the finest novels ever written. During his later years, Tolstoy also achieved world renown as a moral and religious teacher. His doctrine of non-resistance to evil had an important influence on Gandhi. Some viewed him as the embodiment of nature and pure vitality, others saw him as the incarnation of the world's conscience, while all regarded him as a living symbol of the search for life's meaning. This eBook presents Tolstoy's complete fictional works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
