Tolstoy: The Greatest Short Stories

Tolstoy: The Greatest Short Stories has just what it claims to have, some of his finer short works of fiction in one place.  The stories are arranged in a novel way.  There are Tales for Children, Popular Stories, Fairy Tales, Stories Written to Pictures, and Folk Tales retold, to name a few.

This collection shows Tolstoy’s immense talent.  Even when re-working an old fairy tale, he at once makes it timeless and very much his own.
