Tales of Sexual Desire (Capuchin Classics) by Leo Tolsoy

Tolstoy wrote some of the most disquieting short stories the world has known--these three are no exception. Here, the duels and duality of man and woman are played out in tortured--and sometimes tragic--drama. Above all, the characters featured in these pages bring to life universal truths for the human condition; truths that Tolstoy weaves with an almost unrivaled skill. Father Sergius is preoccupied with the material desire for the flesh, while The Kreutzer Sonata caused a public sensation for its scathing indictment of marriage. Tolstoy had become convinced that Christian marriage was an impossibility, and in both Sonata and The Devil he launches a tirade against human sexuality and the humiliating sexual ties that bind men to women. Together these three stories provide a picture of a man obsessed with questions of moral, sexual, and religious ambiguity, his treatment of female sexuality still having a resonance today.
