Until his health deteriorates, an unreflective St. Petersburg judge lives a carefree life. Learning that his death is imminent, he learns to face his mortality without fear and yet feel compassion for the family he is leaving behind. The result is a strong testament to finding spiritual salvation. Hailed as one of the world's masterpieces of psychological realism, this short novel was the artistic culmination of a profound spiritual crisis in Tolstoy's own life, a nine-year period following the publication of Anna Karenina during which he wrote not a word of fiction.
