Resurrection (1899)

It is a sombre but tremendously powerful novel touching upon many tragedies and problems of life in the Russia of to-day. It shows the genius of "Anna Karenina" blended with a more mature comprehension of human life and character. The "Great Master of the North" has written in "Resurrection" a harrowing yet absorbing story with all his old fervor, and with a deeper and more searching spiritual understanding. The theme is that of a woman's life weighed down and well nigh extinguished by the most terrible misfortunes and tragedies, but finally, through the power of love, resurrected and made new. (Translated by Mrs. Louise Maude.)


War and Peace (1869)

The novel tells the story of a number of aristocratic families and the entanglements of their personal lives with Napoleon's invasion of Russia. As events proceed, Tolstoy systematically denies his subjects any significant free choice: the onward roll of history determines happiness and tragedy alike. (Translated by Aylmer and Louise Shanks Maude.)


What Shall We Do? Or, What Is to Be Done? (1886)

What Is to be Done? (sometimes translated as What Then Must We Do?) is a non-fiction work by Leo Tolstoy, in which Tolstoy describes the social conditions of Russia in his day. Tolstoy completed the book in 1886, and the first English language publication came in 1887. The title was also used for two better-known works by Nikolai Chernyshevsky and Vladimir Lenin.


Where Love Is There God Is Also (1887)

"Where Love Is, God Is" (sometimes also translated as Where Love Is, There God Is Also) is a short story by Russian author Leo Tolstoy. The title references the Catholic hymn Ubi Caritas. One English translation of this short story as translated by Nathan Haskell Dole uses the alternate title translation of "Where Love Is, There God Is Also".
