Introduction by Ernest J. Simmons. Illustrations by Fritz Eichenberg. Translated by Leo Wiener. Revised and Edited by F.D. Reeve.

Resurrection, the last of Tolstoy's major novels, tells the story of a nobleman's attempt to redeem himself for the suffering his youthful philandering caused a peasant girl. Tolstoy's vision of redemption achieved through loving forgiveness, and his condemnation of violence dominate the novel. An intimate, psychological tale of guilt, anger, and forgiveness, Resurrection is at the same time a panoramic description of social life in Russia at the end of the nineteenth century, reflecting Tolstoy's outrage at the social injustices of the world in which he lived.

Spine of book sunned and mildly splotched, else in fine condition. Slipcase has some wear, but is in generally good condition with no tears or serious flaws.
