Believed by many to be the greatest novelist the world has known, the Russian Master's work is of paramount importance. This definitive Edition of Tolstoy's oeuvre has every translated novel, short story, novella and play written by Leo Tolstoy. One of our most popular eBooks - now you can own the great Master of Realist fiction.
There is also a front no-nonsense contents table, allowing easy navigation around the enormous file. As with all Delphi Classics, the texts are arranged in chronological order, allowing a scholarly reading and appreciation of Tolstoy's works.
Please note: an absolute 'complete works' of Tolstoy is not possible in English due to copyright restrictions on various translations and some texts not being translated into English yet.
