What Men Live By and Other Tales by Leo Tolstoy

What Men Live By and Other Tales

by Leo Tolstoy

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
2 Hrs. 1 Min.


Although Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) was a wealthy landowner, in his later life he had what was considered a "religious awakening." This experience went on to inform his writing and his lifestyle in profound ways. His views transcended the specifics of religion, as known in his day – so much so he came to be a helpful guide both to Mohandas Gandhi and to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The four stories in this collection ask profound questions and gently supply helpful, non-dogmatic hints to their answerings: What is the most important thing to do? Who is the most important person? When is the most important time? What is worth owning? What is the most profound religion? What rules should men live by? How much land does a man need? Who is God? What should we bother to discuss? How should we act towards one another? How should we respond to cruelty and violence? And many more. Wonderful stories written in a relaxed style.
