Inhaltsangabe: Dissatisfied with his life of frivolity among the aristocracy of Moscow, young Dmitri Andreyevitch Oleynin sets out for the Caucasus region. Here, among the natural beauty of his surroundings and the honest and industrious peasant people, Oleynin hopes to obtain a more meaningful existence. Yet Oleynin is marked out as an outsider from the very beginning, and his ill-fated passion for Maryanka, who is betrothed to a local hero, does little to ingratiate himself with this society. This beautifully articulated novel of self-discovery, youthful idealism and romance is read with great sympathy by Jonathan Oliver.
Inhaltsangabe: A short novel based on Tolstoy's early life as a soldier in the Caucusus. It has the energy and poetry of youth while at the same time foreshadowing the great themes of Tolstoy's later years. Tolstoy explores the birth and death of love and the transience of life.
