Official Review
“Nekhlyudov . . . felt with his whole being a loathing for the society in which he had lived till then: that society which so carefully hides the sufferings borne by millions to assure ease and pleasure to a small minority, that the people comprising it do not and cannot see these sufferings nor the cruelty and wickedness of their own lives.”
Resurrection – Leo Tolstoy

Resurrection by Leo Tolstoy is a humane and compassionate take on society which has a timeless appeal. Inspired by the true life of an aristocrat, Tolstoy’s Prince Dmitry Ivanich Nekhlyudov has lived a life of decadence. He seduces a peasant girl while he is on a holiday at his aunt’s place. She faces a life of ignominy and ends up as a prostitute and long forgotten by the prince. He sees her many years later in a court room as she is tried for a brutal crime. This story is a tale of resurrection as the quote above shows.
