Childhood, Boyhood And Youth Summary

Childhood, Boyhood And Youth by Leo Tolstoy

Tolstoy's lightly fictionalized account of his own early experience ranks with Turgenev's Sportsman's Notebook as a masterpiece of nineteenth-century Russian pastoral life. Peasants and soldiers, servants and aristocrats: the whole world of Tolstoy's later fiction appears before us here in glowing colours, painted with that vivid freshness and sharp observation which were to become the mature writer's hallmarks.
