Abstract: Seldom has an author excited more intense admiration among literary judges for his superb artistic powers and relentless pursuit of self-perfection than Count Lev Nikolayevitch Tolstoy. Critical appraisals of Tolstoy are, indeed, imbued with sheer awe of this somewhat mysterious and mystifying giant. Many seem, in fact, to adopt an attitude that only Nature, herself, would be adequately equipped to judge, to value, to approve or to condemn the somewhat sensational, highly dramatic Russian literary figure.
