MEDIA REVIEWS
Trends in literary criticism that have emerged over the past 25 years can be seen in the sections for Tolstoy's fiction; they include feminist, psychological, and linguistic readings of Tolstoy. The current book follows its predecessor's organization and is easy to use. Annotations on Tolstoy's fiction make up the bulk of the book, with a small section on biographical works at the beginning and miscellaneous categories (e.g., Tolstoy's attitudes toward art, philosophy, and social theory) near the end. Highly recommended. * CHOICE *
Annotations are detailed, clearly written and helpful....a valuable addition to humanities reference collections. * "American Reference Books Annual" *
More than 1200 books, essays, articles and dissertations about Tolstoy can be found in this bibliography. The entries are divided into sections on Tolstoy's fiction, art and aesthetics, philosophy, religion, education, and political, social and economic thought. The volume also lists Tolstoy biographies, comparisons with other authors and works about Tolstoy's influence on other writers. The scholarship reflected here includes some important studies that refute the long-standing view of Tolstoy as a dual personality, unable to integrate his roles as artist and moralist. * Reference and Research Book News *
