Leo Tolstoy is one of the most famous Russian writers in the world. His views formed the basis of a whole religious-philosophical movement (teaching), which is called Tolstoyism. 

Leo Tolstoy was born on August 28 (September 9), 1828, in an eminent noble family in the family estate of mother Yasnaya Polyana, Tula province.

The happy marriage of his parents became the prototype of the heroes in the novel "War and Peace" - Princess Mary and Nikolai Rostov. Parents died early. The childhood of Leo Tolstoy was difficult, but, however, in his works he romanticized this period of his life. 

While Tolstoy served in the army, he would have quite a lot of free time. Even then, he began to write an autobiographical story, "Childhood." This story contains good memories from the childhood of a publicist. 

Also, Lev Nikolaevich participated in the Crimean War, and during this period he created a number of works: "Boyhood", "Sevastopol Stories" and so on. 

From the autumn of 1863 to 1869, Leo Tolstoy worked on the novel War and Peace. 

In the early 1870s, the writer was again fascinated by pedagogy and he creates the ABC and New ABC and compiles the Book for Reading, which includes many of his stories. 

"Anna Karenina" is the most famous creation of Tolstoy. 

The literary heritage of the writer amounted to 90 volumes of fiction and journalistic works.

Leo Tolstoy has been nominated more than once for the Nobel Prize in Literature and the Nobel Peace Prize. 

Socially religious and philosophical quests led Tolstoy to create his own religiously philosophical system (Tolstoyism). In life and works of art, Tolstoy preached the need for moral improvement, universal love, non-resistance to evil by violence, for which he was attacked both by revolutionary democrats and the church.
