Shift in Focus
Seeing as you guys have found quite a bit on Tolstoy already, I figured I would be brief on his information and focus on some of the short stories we should supplement our new book with.
So Tolstoy was born into a noble family and lost his parents at a young age. By the time he was an adult his family’s fortune was lacking. He was obviously successful reagardless. Besides the fame he received for his two longest novels, “War and Peace” and “Anna Karenina”, (Sorry I don’t know how to italicize using this thing) he became well known as a teacher of both morals and religion. It is said that Martin Luther King Jr. and Ghandi acquired some of their inspiration for nonviolence from him.
Anyways, some of his short stories include “There Are No Guilty People”, “How Much Land Does A Man Need?”, and “A Spark Neglected Burns The House”, all of which sound like they would be great reads. Maybe I am judging a story by its title but they seem as if they could be inspiring for a research paper. Let me know what you guys think.
