By: George Steiner

George Steiner`s Tolstoy or Dostoevsky has become a classic among scholars of Russian literature. An essay in poetic and philosophic criticism that bears mainly on the Russian masters, Tolstoy or Dostoevsky deals also with larger themes: the epic tradition extending from Homer to Tolstoy: the continuity of a "tragic world view" from Oedipus Rex to King Lear and The Brothers Karamazov: the contrasts between the epic and dramatic modes, between irreconcilably opposed views of God and of history.
