Description

Tolstoy’s hero, Olenin, a young nobleman who is disenchanted with city life, finds himself caught up and charmed by the wild beauty of the Caucasus and the simplicity of its people. Against the primitive background of what is present-day Kazakhstan, Tolstoy examines two psychological problems. The first dilemma is that of a young man who desires both fulfilling love and a place as a respected member of society. The other problem presented is the difficulty of a primitive society when asked to accept the domination of a higher culture which has no understanding of the traditions it asks its colonists to cast aside. One of Tolstoy’s lesser-known novels, The Cossacks is one of the finest pictures of Cossack society in all Russian literature.
