    Cover Art
    The Kreutzer sonata variations : Lev Tolstoy's novella and counterstories by Sofiya Tolstaya and Lev Lvovich Tolstoy - translated and edited by Michael R. Katz ; with a foreword by Ekaterina Tolstaya and an afterword by Andrey Tolstoy
    Call Number: ebook
    Publication Date: Yale University Press, [2014]
    A work unprecedented in world literature, this unique volume contains a new translation of Lev Tolstoy’s controversial novella The Kreutzer Sonata, which was initially banned by Russian censors.

    In addition, available to English readers for the first time is a fascinating and previously neglected constellation of counterstories written by the author’s wife and son in direct response to Tolstoy’s provocative tale, each a passionate attempt to undo the message of the original work.

    These radically conflicting tales, accompanied by excerpts from family letters, diaries, notes, and memoirs, provide readers with a vivid and highly revealing case study of the powerful disputes concerning sexuality and gender roles that erupted within the cultural context of late-nineteenth-century Russian, as well as European, society.
