Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140441840, Paperback)Serving on a jury at the trial of a prostitute arrested for murder, Prince Nekhlyudov is horrified to discover that the accused is a woman he had once loved, seduced and then abandoned when she was a young servant girl. Racked with guilt at realizing he was the cause of her ruin, he determines to appeal for her release or give up his own way of life and follow her. Conceived on an epic scale, "Resurrection" portrays a vast panorama of Russian life, taking us from the underworld of prison cells and warders to the palaces of countesses. It is also an angry denunciation of government, the upper classes, the judicial system and the Church, and a highly personal statement of Tolstoy's belief in human redemption.

A psychological tale of guilt, anger, and forgiveness, 'Resurrection' provides a panoramic view of Russian social life at the end of the 19th century and expresses the author's contempt for the social injustices of the world in which he lived.
