Un saludo. Incluso de la fatalidad. Si ese amor existe entre un hombre y una mujer, el matrimonio es posible. Me consideraba un ser encantador y de elevada moralidad. Pero no se trata de eso. No, ninguna mujer me sedujo.

Start your review of The Kreutzer Sonata Write a review Shelves: literature , russia Lookie here, folks, this is me giving a 4-star rating to a massively sexist, pro-Christian, anti-sex, anti-birth-control novella about a guy who murders his wife for maybe cheating on him, feels justified in doing so, and gets away with it! Have I forgotten myself, or is this book incredibly well-written? Can I love the arrangement of the words, but detest their meaning? Know what Tolstoy thinks? They just use those things in their front and that other thing in between their stilts to make up for being wronged by society.
Point of fact, they hate sex! Men love it because they are cursed with a love for it, and many of the terrible things they do, all the way down to murder, can be explained by it alone: sex. The closest thing to un-evil that a lady can do for herself that is sex-related is have children within the bounds of marriage this is their sole reason for existing anyways, right? Anything else is double, double toil and trouble.
The best a man can do is avoid that temptation as much as possible, admit that all of his supposed "love" for a woman is purely the product of icky biological needs and perverse social conditioning, and try to live an abstinent life. Makes sense, right? To illustrate, any time someone makes a comment about how Nabokov must have been a pedophile to write Humbert and Quilty so well, I can feel my esophagus beginning to constrict, my nails digging into my palms, and a strong urge to have a drink or twenty.
This is like Pat Roberts roid-raging, still all in love with god, but hateful of the church itself. That alone makes it worth writing about, especially this beautifully.
There are also some beautiful musings on the infinite importance and changing powers of music to the mind of the listener; a gentle soul, that Tolstoy. Almost everything else that the narrator Pozdnyshev has to say has this intense, guttural quality that hits in these never-ending blasts of shrapnel.
My meaning: this book is powerful. May I recommend Valium with a cup of warm tea beforehand, or that you avoid this book like the plague? Gentle suggestions, is all. Please keep in mind that this is my first experience with Tolstoy, and that I fully intend to read other works by him. I can see that he was an extremely gifted writer, and mean no disrespect to his ardent fans.

During a train ride, Pozdnyshev overhears a conversation concerning marriage, divorce and love. When a woman argues that marriage should not be arranged but based on true love , he asks "what is love? Convention dictates that two married people stay together, and initial love can quickly turn into hatred. After he meets and marries his wife, periods of passionate love and vicious fights alternate.
