Leo Tolstoy is considered as a master of realistic fiction. His two great works, ‘war and peace’ and ‘Anna Karenina’ are regarded as the finest novels of all times.Tolstoy had a unique ability to observe the smallest changes of consciousness and to record the slightest movements of the body which reflected through his writings as well.

People started believing that he had developed godlike powers. Some viewed Tolstoy as the embodiment of nature and pure vitality, others saw him as the incarnation of the world’s conscience, but for almost all who knew him or read his works, he was not just one of the greatest writers who ever lived but a living symbol of the search for life’s meaning. During his last three decades of his life, Tolstoy became famous as a moral and religious teacher. His doctrine of Non- resistance to evil had an important influence on Gandhi.
