Description: Leo Tolstoy, himself an advocate of conscientious war resistance and author of the greatest war fiction in modern rimes, hated war but understood its role in human life. In this chapter, Professor Donna Tussing Orwin explores the psychological and cultural reasons why Tolstoy's soldiers go to war. At different points in his writing Tolstoy sometimes seems like a patriot and at others a pacifist. To make sense of Tolstoy’s different conclusions about war, Professor Orwin sorts through Tolstoy’s mass of impressions on war by surveying his diaries and his fictional writing.
