The Cossacks by Leo Tolstoy

The Cossacks

by Leo Tolstoy

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
7 Hrs. 13 Min.


The Cossacks is one of the finest depictions of Cossack society in Russian literature. Against that primitive background, Tolstoy examines two psychological problems. The first is that of a young man who wants to love and wants to fit into society. The other is that of the difficulty of a primitive society in accepting the domination of a higher culture. This is a brilliant exploration of the themes of individuality and social identity.
