Description - The Power of Darkness: A Drama in Five Acts: A Drama in Five Acts by Leo Tolstoy
A cold and unsparing look at Russian peasant life, this drama centers on a character whose crimes progress from adultery to murder. Tolstoy's moving portrait of a class enslaved by poverty and ignorance was written in 1886 but its performance was suppressed by Russian authorities until 1902. A 1904 Yiddish version marked the first successful production of a play by Tolstoy in the United States. AUTHOR: Leo Tolstoy (1828 1910) was one of the greatest figures in Russian and world literature, author of War and Peace, Anna Karenina, and many other novels, short stories, and autobiographical and philosophical works. Dover also publishes several of his novels and story collections.
