LEV TOLSTOY (1828-1910) is the most famous of Russian writers. Most all of his works have been translated multiple times, with recent translations of War and Peace and Anna Karenina by the team of Richard Pevear and Larisa Volkhonskaya being the most notable. Resurrection was his last novel, and it focuses on the themes of sin and redemption, and on the hypocrisy of the church. Tolstoy used the royalties from this work to help the Doukhobors, a Protestant religious sect, emigrate from Russia to Canada.
