Tolstoi, both as writer and thinker, exerted a compelling influence on English writers and social reformers. In turn, his own outlook on life and literary genius owed much to his keen response to British culture. This book is a collection of previously published articles -- supplemented by excerpts translated from Tolstoi's own writings -- conveying the extent of this dynamic interchange and the reciprocal benefit gained by Britain and Russia as a result of this remarkable symbiosis of cultures. An introduction by the editor traces the development of the interchange and places the various essays in their context.
