The Greatest Short Stories of Leo Tolstoy is a collection of short stories by Russian author Leo Tolstoy. Summary of the Book Leo Tolstoy believed in a strong moral foundation. His writing is constantly imbued with a didactic nature and his short stories are a strong example of this. Tolstoy is celebrated to this day for his short stories, and this collection brings together some of his most memorable stories. In How Much Land Does a Man Need?, an avaricious man makes a deal with the Devil. In God Sees the Truth But Waits, an innocent man is convicted of a murder he did not commit and goes on to become a mediator among his fellow prisoners. In A Prisoner in the Caucasus, Tolstoy’s favourite story, an old man tries to barter the lives of two Russian soldiers for the life of his captive son. In Ivan the Fool, a naïve young man must bolster his struggling family's fortunes together with his mute sister. These and several other stories demonstrate Tolstoy’s penchant for a life full of love, respect and devotion for the truth. About Leo Tolstoy Lev "Leo" Nikolayevich Tolstoy was a Russian writer and philosopher. Considered one of the greatest novelists, he is best known for Anna Karenina, War and Peace, The Death of Ivan Ilych, Family Happiness and Hadji Murat.

The Russian novelist and moral philosopher Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) ranks as one of the world's great writers and his "War and Peace" has been called the greatest novel ever written. The purpose of all true creative art, he believed, is to teach. But the message in all his stories is presented with such humor that the reader hardly realizes that it is strongly didactic. The seven parts into which this book is divided include the best known Tolstoy stories. "God Sees the Truth, but Waits" and "A Prisoner in the Caucasus" which Tolstoy himself considered as his best, "How Much Land Does a Man Need?" depicting the greed of a peasant for land, the most brilliantly told parable, "Ivan the Fool" these are all contained in this volume.
