Entre los grandes escritores del siglo XIX, Lev Nicoláievich Tolstói (1828-1910) ha sido calificado como genio único, sin equivalente en ningún otro país. Hijo de un acaudalado terrateniente que le dejó una fortuna inmensa, se lanzó por los angeles vía de l. a. disipación hasta que su participación como oficial durante l. a. guerra de Crimea le hizo volverse hacia unos valores humanistas y continuar una vocación literaria en los angeles que ya se había iniciado antes de los angeles guerra. El cambio afectó a sus convicciones espirituales más íntimas y desembocaría, al ultimate de su vida, en una main issue ethical y religiosa que derivó hacia un cristianismo evangélico radical. Al comienzo de esta etapa escribe Ana Karenina, en l. a. que Tolstói refleja su visión de los angeles sociedad urbana, símbolo de los vicios y el pecado, en oposición a los angeles vida sana de los angeles naturaleza y del campo. De ese mundo necio y patológico de l. a. ciudad es víctima Ana Karenina, que se ha convertido en una figura clave de l. a. literatura common.
