Description

Excerpt from Ivan Ilyitch: And Other Stories These stories will be regarded both seriously and as curiosities, for it is impossible not to read between the lines. The only wonder is, that the censor who forbade My Religion should have allowed the skazka entitled Ivan Durak. The implication of criticism on the whole military system of Russia is not even covert. The question of regieide is plainly discussed in A Candle. Though regicide itself is condemned, it is not dubious who is meant by the prikdshchik of the story. Count Tolstoi's whole sys tem of philosophy is concretely revealed in these alle gorical tales: it is not necessary here to discuss the strength or weakness of his logic. But there are few who will not be touched by the moral which Count Tolsto'i conveys by means of these curious tales.
