The Diaries of Sofia Tolstoy

Be the first to review this product

When Sofia Behrs married Count Leo Tolstoy, the author of War and Peace, husband and wife regularly exchanged diaries covering the years from 1862 to 1910. Sofias life was not an easy one she idealized her husband, but was tormented by him even her many children were not an unmitigated blessing. In the background of her life was one of the most turbulent periods of Russian history the transition from old feudal Russia to the three revolutions and three major international wars. Yet it is as Sofia Tolstoys own life story, the study of one womans private experience, that the diaries are most valuable and moving. They are a testament to a woman of tremendous vital energy and poetic sensibility who, in the face of provocation and suffering, continued to strive for the higher things in life and to remain indomitable. From the state of the great writers stomach and the progress of his work, to the fierce and painful arguments that would eventually divide the couple for ever, Sofias Diaries are both compelling and extraordinarily revealing.
