From Our Editors

 

Despite all that made up Leo Tolstoy's world - his success, his fine health, a wonderful wife, a large estate and many happy children - he suffered a quiet malaise. A Confession and Other Religious Writings is an autobiographical piece that, in its most cathartic moments, attempts to deal with the meaninglessness of life he was inexplicably feeling. Recording his depression and alienation from the world and his desire to place meaning on the simplest and most uncomplicated of things, Tolstoy embarked on a inner-journey that began his search for religion.

Appropriate for ages: 18 - 18
