  4. Tolstoy's 'What is Art?'

    By Terry Diffey

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Tolstoy and Dostoevsky

    With its demand that works of art be judged according to the their morally didactic content, Tolstoy’s reviled aesthetics has seemed to exclude from the canon far too many works widely accepted as masterpieces, including Shakespeare and Beethoven.

  9. Tolstoy: The Comprehensive Vision

    By E.B. Greenwood

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Tolstoy and Dostoevsky
