Description

These four novellas--Family Happiness, The Kreutzer Sonata, The Cossacks, and Hadji Murad--each unique in form, show Tolstoy at his creative height. This edition uses the acclaimed Maude translations, (except for Family Happiness, translated by J.D. Huff), modernized and corrected against modern Russian editions to create this English language version. While the Afterword to The Kreutzer Sonata appears for the first time in English with the story. The explanatory notes and substantial introduction use the most recent scholarship in the field to further illuminate Tolstoy's works of shorter fiction.
