Описание

God Sees the Truth but Waits has the subject matter that Dostoyevsky could have used. The difference is Dostoyevsky would have written it with a fist waving of anger and frustration leaping from the page while Tolstoy writes it with an accepting non-violent attitude relating to those abused with grievances. The protagonist has wrongly been accused of murder, separated from his family for 26 years, and by circumstance meets the real murder in Siberia. The protagonist has come to have an important role in the Siberian community, trusted by Warden and prisoners alike. He spies the murder trying to escape, is threatened, but still does not speak out when asked by the Warden. This profoundly moves the murderer who seeks forgiveness from the protagonist, who says, “Only God can give forgiveness.” The protagonist becomes at peace with himself. The murderer confesses, the protagonist exonerated and ordered released from prison, but is dead when the notice comes. A classic Russian ending.

Об авторе

Leo Tolstoy was born in 1828 in Tula, near Moscow. His parents, who both died when he was young, belonged to the Russian nobility, and to the end of his life Tolstoy remained conscious of his aristocratic status. His novels, ‘War and Peace’ and ‘Anna Karenina’ are literary classics and he is revered as one of the greatest writers of the nineteenth century. He died in 1910 at the age of 82.

  • (4/5)
    A sad little story of a man who spends a life in prison for a murder committed by another
  • (5/5)
    Nice story very linear though, cumulative, ended with the death of an innocent man, who's life was wasted

    AMAZING STORY OF QUIET REDEMPTION IN A REAL WORLD CONTEXT. The redemption did not come in the form of freedom from imprisonment, but in the lightness of heart from forgiveness, and by forgiving the murderer, he entered into a new life with the Father in heaven, and he no doubt experienced the ultimate form of joy and enlightenment in the very presence of God. And his legacy was to bring conversion in the heart of the murderer who became contrite and changed his life.

    Another short story winner from Tolstoy. Many think of Tolstoy as a master of the long novel, but I have really enjoyed his short stories and novelettes.

    I know it's Tolstoy, but my feeling toward this story was "blah."
