Summary (From the publisher):

Resurrection is the last of Tolstoy's major novels. It tells the story of a nobleman's attempt to redeem himself for the suffering his youthful philandering inflicted on a peasant girl whi ends up as a prisoner in Siberia.

Tolstoy's vision of redemption achieved through loving forgiveness, and his condemnation of violence dominate the novel. An intimate, psychological tale of guilt, anger, and forgiveness, Resurrection is at the same time a panoramic description of social life in Russia at the end of the nineteenth century, reflecting Tolstoy's outrage at the social injustices of the world in which he lived.
