About the Author
Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) is one of Russia's greatest novelists and a social dramatist who rejected his upbringing as a member of the nobility. He regarded the theatre in particular as a means of education the populace away from the moral degeneracy, brought about by the squalor of Russian peasant life.
Aylmer Maude (1858 - 1938) and Louise Maude (1855-1939) were English translators of Leo Tolstoy's works and Aylmer Maude also wrote his friend Tolstoy's biography. After living many years in Russia the Maudes spent the rest of their life in England translating Tolstoy's writing and promoting public interest in his work. Aylmer Maude was also involved in a number of early 20th century progressive and idealistic causes.
