Biographical sites about Count Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy

The Last Days of Leo Tolstoy
“The Last Days of Leo Tolstoy by Vladimir Chertkov, Tolstoy’s long-time personal secretary, disciple and executor of his literary estate, is both a history, a chronicle of Tolstoy’s deathbed scene, and a story, a personal interpretation of that event in a literary genre reminiscent of the Gospels. Chertkov depicts the dying Tolstoy as a kind of Christ-figure, who, by his renunciation of all worldly goods, by his ethics of love and by his very death, saves a suffering humanity.”
Contains: Extensive Bio
Author: Vladimir Chertkov
Reminiscences of Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy
“These fragmentary notes were written by me during the period when I lived in Oleise and Leo Nikolaevich at Gaspra in the Crimea. They cover the period of Tolstoy’s serious illness and of his subsequent recovery. The notes were carelessly jetted down on scraps of paper, and I thought I had lost them, but recently I have found some of them. . . . I include here an unfinished letter written by me under the influence of the ‘going away’ of Leo Nikolaevich from Yasnaya Polyana, and of his death. I publish the letter just as it was written at the time and without correcting a single word; and I do not finish it, for somehow or other this is not possible.”
Contains: Extensive Bio, Pictures
Author: Maxim Gorky
From: 1920
