Tolstoy: The Kreutzer Sonata (Unabridged)
Leo Tolstoy
Read by Jonathan Oliver
One of Tolstoy's most important shorter works, The Kreutzer Sonata presents a problematic view of the relationship between the sexes and promotes abstinence as the solution. Pozdnyshev jealously observes the intimacy that emerges between his wife and a violin player. Haunted by 'The Kreutzer Sonata' over which they bonded; it plays round and round in Pozdnyshev's head driving him to distraction and to an unquenchable rage. The Kreutzer Sonata is a psychologically fascinating novella, offering interesting insights into the power play between the sexes.
