Purple cloth covered boards with minor shelf wear and one minor bump to lower front corner. Tiny chip to dust jacket which is now protected by archival quality mylar cover by Brodart. "Proceeding on the methodological principle that the later clarifies the earlier, a principle grounded in Tolstoy's obsessive need for self- articulation, this book uses his wide- ranging theological world- view, reconstructed for the first time and placed in the context of eastern Christian thought, to elucidate the meanings and strategies of his novels and stories. The poetics of Tolstoy's fiction, including mythic patterns, techniques of narration, and verbal style, are worked out in an original way and related to the concerns that were most precious to him."
