Collection of four Tolstoy short stories including one of his best known: The Kreutzer Sonata. This macabre story involves the murder of a wife by her husband. It is a penetrating study of jealousy as well as a piercing complaint about the way in which society educates men and women in matters of sex-- a serious condemnation of the mores and attitudes of the wealthy, educated class.
