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.
