9780141978222: A Confession

Tolstoy's autobiographical 'A Confession' is a dissection of his soul, a study of his life's movement away from the religious certainties of youth, and a vital piece of reading which contextualises the great works he is best known for. Marking the point at which his life moved from the worldly to the spiritual, Tolstoy's philosophical reassessment of the Orthodox faith is a work which holds vital spiritual and intellectual importance to this very day.
