Does my life hold any significance that will outlast my death? This familiar question haunted Tolstoy, even after his grand
achievements in the form of War and Peace and Anna Karenina. His A Confession marks the 51-year-old author's movement from
the pursuit of aesthetic ideals toward matters of religious and philosophical consequence. Authentic and moving, it recaptures
his heartfelt re-examination of Christian orthodoxy and subsequent spiritual awakening. Generations of readers have been inspired
by this timeless account of an individual's struggle for faith and a meaningful existence. Unabridged republication of the
Aylmer Maude translation as published by Oxford University Press, London, 1921.
