Tolstoy, Women, and Death: A Study of War and Peace and Anna Karenina (Hardback)David Holbrook (author)
Hardback Published: 01/06/1997
- Not available
Tolstoy openly despised women, yet in his greatest novels he created some of the most fascinating women characters. Holbrook draws on concepts and insights from object-relations and existentialist psycho-analysis to explain this bewildering contradiction. He suggests that behind Tolstoy's problems with women and sex was having his mother's primary maternal preoccupation withdrawn at a very early age.
