We are blessed as readers to have, alongside the mature writer of "Anna Karenina "and "War and Peace," and the revolutionarymystic of the later years, the young Tolstoy who wrote these elegiac tales, the first of which was published in 1852, when he was only twenty-three. In their sensitivity to nature and their evocations of fugitive emotions, they reveal his genius in all its untroubled early splendor.
