If you enjoyed War and Peace and Anna Karenina then this illuminating volume should be on your list. These short stories including the highly regarded novella The Death of Ivan Ilych show how Tolstoy’s craft developed over his lifetime. The stories, written between 1855 and 1905, were selected as some of Tolstoy’s best. They are followed with excerpts from Tolstoy’s diary, some of his letters, and over twenty different pieces of literary criticism. This supplemental material was very helpf [...]

I read this book for a Russian Lit. class and ended up enjoying the majority of stories in this collection. While many of the stories have strong religious undertones - especially those dating after Tolstoy's religious conversion in 1878 - they were, for the most part, interesting and meaningful in one way or another. The wartime stories Sevastopol in December and Sevastopol in May were both descriptive in such a way that made you feel as if you were among the regiments fighting with the defende [...]

I feel like I finally got to read stories that are referenced frequently by other writers. Tolstoy is kind of like the Bible in that way. Ivan Ilyich and the Kreutzer sonata, the two I had heard of multiple times, lived up to the hype, and I can see why Tolstoy sticks in your memory.

I read only select stories from this book because it was for a Russian Literature course that I am taking. Out of the stories that I read, my favorites were "Alyosha the Pot," "The Kreutzer Sonata," "God Sees the Truth, But Waits," "After the Dance," and "Sevastopol in Decemeber" (in that order, beginning with my most favorite).
