About the Author:

Justin Weir is professor of Slavic languages and literatures, Harvard University. His previous work includes The Author as Hero: Self and Tradition in Bulgakov, Pasternak, and Nabokov.

Review:

"Weir's book is part of a long tradition in Slavic scholarship which has devoted itself to the study of literature as such, and to its creators. . . . The scholarship of this work shows broad knowledge of the European literary and philosophical traditions, an exceptional command of Russian literature and of the literary nuances of the Russian language."—Gary R. Jahn, University of Minnesota (Gary R. Jahn)

“This book takes its place among the work of the most influential Tolstoy scholars.”—Gary Saul Morson, author of "Anna Karenina" in Our Time: Seeing More Wisely (Gary Saul Morson)

"In this substantive examination of the major works of Tolstoy the author has achieved something quite remarkable: a completely new key to appreciating and understanding Tolstoy's artistry."—Amy Mandelker, Associate Professor of Comparative Literature at CUNY (Amy Mandelker)
