Starting out as a courtroom drama we soon get drawn into a hugely deep and moving narrative of an unjust system of criminal law, poverty and wealth at each end of the spectrum and one man’s personally crusade of redemption for a life lived where he uses his high position in society to take advantage of others.
That man is Prince Dmitri Nekhlyudov who after being called for jury duty discovers to his horror one of three persons on trial is Katyusha, a beautiful young lady who he once seduced and then cruelly abandoned during his time in the armed services. He learns of her plight working in a brothel where she may or may not have been set up to poison a client to steal money, so Nekhlyudov is sent back into the past to realise that he really did love her and soon wants to know as much as possible about the case to try and get her acquitted as he is burdened with guilt for what she had become.
Convinced she is innocent of her crime he goes about in any way possible to try and save her as it’s harsh labour in Siberia the likely outcome if charged, even willing to give up his life of luxury to be by Katyusha’s side regardless of any outcome and to take her hand in marriage, for which she refuses.
Nekhlyudov uses his prestige as a well thought of man to try and shake up the foundations of scathing injustice, corruption and hypocrisy at the top level of society. The psychological portrait of Dmitri is quite outstanding as we see him change from an empty, comfortable individual to a man of steely resolute and emotion.
The squalid conditions and other prisoners stories he hears while visiting Katyusha awaiting her fate are just not fair in his eyes and starts to help others as well. As for Katyusha she is difficult to read, she doesn’t really care for her own injustices anymore and tends to use Nekhlyudov for the benefit of other inmates, spending time locked up has clearly effected her mind and the Prince see’s a completely changed person from the one that he once knew.
Using a vast array of deeply drawn characters we get a panoramic view of Russian life, from pheasants, convicts and aristocrats, to wealthy politicians, prison guards and lawyers both defending and prosecuting. Tolstoy is such a great storyteller, mixing gritty realism with compassionate kindhearted warmth. Two things that make Resurrection an almost perfect novel is his gift at Characterization and also fluid writing, as this makes it really hard to find a suitable place to stop reading.
It doesn’t have the pace of an intense thriller but is in no way a slow-burner either, it’s just about spot on, and the novel as a whole is no doubt a Russian masterpiece. Also have to give penguin classics a lot of credit as this version is impeccable, with a great introduction, bonus material and a wonderful translation by Anthony Briggs who has worked on other Russian classics.

Just nineteen, Dimitri is a student at the university, which he does more carousing than lnvierea, constantly pestering his widowed mother, Princess Elena for more money.
Katerina Katusha Maslovavery prettya few years younger than the Prince has no family except an aunt, Matrona, that isn’t ttolstoi with her, Katerina’s mothera promiscuous woman gave birth to many children without the benefit of a marriage license. And presided over those so carelessly Katerina had good fortune though, her mother’s sister, that same relative, mentioned before, felt sorry for the child, didn’t help, she was so adorable and somehow survived.
When the two old, lonely ladies the owners of the property fell in love with the baby, they first yolstoi, brought her into their house and raised Katerina.
As both a servant and daughter, hence the Prince smitten by the girlwants her as he feels, he has every right to Katerinaat first she resists but after another visit succumbs. The cycle begins again an illegitimate son born and dies, and Katerina forced out. Men always chase the beautiful woman and she loses servant jobs, the ladies of the house quite insist. In the end the only option, becoming a prostitute, but miracles occur, while Maslova is on trial for a crime she didn’t commit the surprised Prince is a member of the jury.
Thus they meet again, ten years later, Dimitri feels remorseful, he will try to help the woman, she doesn’t recognize him at first. Guilt consumes, he is responsible for the girl’s situation, her decent to the bottom, the depravity, coarseness, both smoking, and drinking, just imaginethe ultimate degradation still, the scandalous living in an unrespectable residence too, an innocent woman until he spoiled her.
The ruin of Katerina’s whole life, all falls on his lap. Dimitri has to make amends, nothing else will relief his ceaseless pain. Even going to Siberia Nevertheless the convicts die and die His familystart to think this strange behavior may be a sign of a mental breakdown, he is even trying to give the peasants his land in a convoluted way. Tolstoy, more interested in his philosophy Georgism, from American writer Henry George than deep characterization, in this novelpontificates his belief that everyone is equal, the lowest to the highest.
Criminals should be forgiven no matter what they did Not a popular notion today. This novel because of its risque material, sold more books in his lifetime than his two great classics, War and Peace and Anna Karenina Tolstoy’s novel is a moralistic tale, yes, but the finest you are ever going to read.

Jul 29, Corinne rated it tolstii was amazing Shelves: What moved me the most in this novel is: And this is not just in France, but all over the world. When I read those sections on judicial errors, imprisonment for lack of official papers, inhuman treatment of prisoners, and the fallacy of the ‘correctional system’, I really had the impression that very little has changed since his time.
But, before I get carried out, here are some more points that also moved me dee What moved me the most in this novel is: But, before I get carried out, invierae are some more points that also moved me deeply, as I could relate to all them personally: Then he is called into the jury duty, where he sees how his former recklessness has ruined the life of a woman and her child.
And, he decides to act. His transformation is not a linear process. Tolstoy does a great job in unravelling this process, this severe inner conflict in depth, and the gradual change in the lifestyle of Nekhludoff.
Yet, what happens also appeases the heart of Nekhludoff, and we see his true sacrifice. Isn’t this how life is really?
Nekhludoff had stopped believing in himself and started believing in others.
This gave him a serious conflict between his conscience and animal instincts; unconsciously, he started to hate himself, thus others as well. When he starts to believe himself again, he feels tender toward himself, experiences a freedom and joy he has never known before. This is something I can relate to, both in my professional and personal world; it gave me the courage to be like him even more.
Nekhludoff had become so obsessed with the ‘social mirrors’ that, even when he started to act for Maslova, he kept asking himself if he was really doing all that for his conscience, or to look good inverea the eyes of others. This is so true! No matter how hard I try, my old habit of inviierea into the tolsyoi mirrors always comes back.
This is something I’ve always done about my job of a business consultant, although I know how wrong I am.
Yet, I have to keep this job to invireea mouths. Then Maslova starts to transform during her travel across Siberia, under the influence of those two fellow prisoners, tplstoi opinions become important to her. She changes, to live up to their eyes, because she feels they care for her.
This happened to me too, when I met someone who cared for me. In fact, in one novel, Tolstoy has enacted two great resurrections: Now, coming back to the judicial system. I absolutely agree with the paragraph where Tolstoy says that those who are the most nervous, strongest, talented, yet the least careful and lacking cunning, fall victim to the judicial systems. This is a universal phenomenon, as I’ve seen.
How can we ‘correct’ people, by confining them behind bars, by humiliating them? Invierra call these methods ‘correctional’ at all?
