Nikolay Andreyev, introduction to Leo Tolstoy, “Master and Man and Other Parables and Tales”


Andreyev, Introduction – Tolstoy, ‘Master and Man’


Posted here as a PDF is Nikolay Andreyev’s introduction to Leo Tolstoy, Master and Man and Other Parables and Tales (Dent, Everyman’s Library, 1957).

I purchased this book in the 1970s — the title story made a strong impression on me.

Andreyev’s concise introduction to Tolstoy is very illuminating — about the man and his works in general, not just Tolstoy’s short stories.
