Hi Joey,
Congratulations on a very successful Blog post! Your insights into the life of Tolstoy gave me a greater understanding of Tolstoy’s perspective and your writing was a joy to read. What an interesting man with such strong convictions. I think this essence of Tolstoy is truly reflected in “The Death of Ivan Ilych” and “Master and Man” which I believe you linked to perfectly in relation to Tolstoy’s views regarding the social context of Russia. It might be interesting to explore this further, giving examples where you believe Tolstoy’s personal life directly influenced his writing, or perhaps where he mirrored Russian society. Perhaps adding a few links, or providing evidence to support your information would elevate this post, but overall, I found this very well written and hard to fault. Well done.
