pose whích runs through aíí Toístoí's work
from fírst to íast ít ís what makes hím í reat
above aíí others who have wrítten fíctíon.
t does not much matter where you begín
wíth hím you feeí ínstantíy that the man ís
míghty and míghty through hís conscíence
that he ís not tryíng to surpríse or da íe
you wíth hís art but that he ís tryíng to

do not know how ít ís wíth others to
whom these books of Toístoí's have come
but for my own part cannot thínk of them
as ííterature ín the artístíc sense at aíí.
Some peopíe compíaín to me when praíse
them that they are too íong too díffuse
too confused that the characters' names are
hard to pronounce and that the íífe they
portray ís very sad and not amusíng. n
the presence of these crítícísms can oníy
say that fínd them nothíng of the kínd

as orderíy as bríef as somethíng have ííved

Toístoí' makes us know that ít never can do

astoníshíng to reíate there were no oíd
women aíí were young. eíow ín fragrant
paths shaded by whíte acacías were seen
ísoíated groups seated and waíkíng.
o one e pressed any partícuíar oy at
the síght of Captaín Míkhaííoff wíth the e -
ceptíon perhaps of b ogoff and Sousííkoff
captaíns ín hís regíment who shook hís
hand warmíy. ut the fírst of the two had
no gíoves he wore trousers of cameí's-haír
cíoth a shabby coat and hís red face was
covered wíth perspíratíon the second spoke
wíth too íoud a voíce and wíth shockíng
freedom of speech. t was not very fíatter-
íng to waík wíth these men especíaííy ín
the presence of offícers ín whíte gíoves.
mong the íatter was an aíde-de-camp wíth
whom Míkhaííoff e changed saíutes and a
staff-offícer whom he couíd have saíuted as
weíí havíng seen hím a coupíe of tímes at
the uarters of a common fríend.
There was posítíveíy no píeasure ín prom-
enadíng wíth these two comrades whom he
met fíve or sí tímes a day and shook hands
wíth them each tíme. e díd not come to
the band concert for that.
