    doc × Хаджи Мурат º Paperback Read × citybreakscheap Хаджи МуратLike many people I associate thistles with the Scottish Highlands I think of them as the tough warriors of the plant world fending off grazing animals with their spiny leaves and able to reroot themselves when they've been ploughed up a bit like Scottish clansmen over the centuries rebuilding their fiefs after they'd been attacked by their enemiesLev Tolstoy begins his story about Hadji Murat by contemplating a thistle in a ploughed field This thistle which he tells us is a Tartar thistle had been upturned by the plough but nevertheless had managed to take root and grow again indomitable The tale he goes on to tell echoes that introduction nicely It is set in the Chechen area of the Caucasus mountains in the 1850s where the Russian Army were trying to gain a foothold and where they came up against the prickly and indomitable Tartar chief Hadji Murat who I couldn't help noticing sometimes wore a richly coloured tunic like the Tartar thistle in bloom while at

    doc × Хаджи Мурат º Paperback Read × citybreakscheap Хаджи МуратFortunately Hadji Murat is a fraction of the size of 'War Peace' or 'Anna Karenina' but despite the brevity it propels Tolstoy to the foreground of my literary perspectiveHadji Murat chronicles the life of the eponymous hero who came to personify the resistance of the Caucasus to Russian imperialism The work was published posthumously and reflects an anger and disillusionment with Czarism that perhaps explains why Tolstoy chose not to make the manuscript public What follows is an intense portrait of the period as well as the rival peoples The narrative is gripping from the very onset and Tolstoy exhibits an unrivalled skill in creating wholly absorbing atmospheres and surroundings He maintains a degree of conciseness that never borders on reductionist and in fact manages to take the reader on a circuitous moral tour of the characters you cannot help but root for Hadji Murat and yet sympathise with the Russian infantrymenA powerful and

    doc × Хаджи Мурат º Paperback Read × citybreakscheap Хаджи МуратBook Circle Reads 160Rating 3 of fiveThe Publisher Says In Hadji Murat Tolstoy recounts the extraordinary meeting of two polarized cultures the refined Europeanized court of the Russian tsar and the fierce Muslim chieftains of the Chechen hills This brilliant culturally resonant fiction was written towards the end of Tolstoy's life but the conflict it describes has obvious ironic parallels with current affairs today It is 1852 and Hadji Murat one of the most feared mountain chiefs is the scourge of the Russian army When he comes to surrender the Russians are delighted Or have they naively welcomed a double agent into their midst? With its sardonic portraits from the inscrutable Hadji Murat to the fat and bumbling tsar Tolstoy's story is an astute and witty commentary on the nature of political relations and states at war Leo Tolstoy is one of the world's greatest writers Best known
