Which range from the serf Ivan Brodkin to Peter's sinister and opportunistic favorite Alexander Menshikoff; from the old Boyars shorn of their beards and their prerogatives to the foreign captains of the new Russian navy Here in these pages are the beautiful Anna Mons Peter's first mistress; his wife Eudoxia whom he never loved; and the peasant girl who eventually was to be crowned Empress Catherine the First We see these men and women moving across a tapestry of battles abroad and amid the dark opulent luxury of the great families and the Imperial Court In Tolstoy's moving crowded pages we see the emergence of Russia thrust forward by Peter's inexorable will from a backward medieval state to her final position as one of the great powers of Europe Here are magnificent portraits the fruits of years of historical research of Peter's principal opponents August.

Пётр ПервыйElector of Saxony indefatigable in his amusements and King Charles XII of Sweden a great military genius flawed by passion and indulgence But the true hero of Tolstoy's epic is Peter himself We see him grow to be a man awkward suspicious prone to spasms of cowardice but always driving sometimes provoked almost to madness to free his country from the chains of backwardness and superstition to take her place as an eual among the nations of the west And in the last analysis it is this greatness and originality of character in its hero which gives the stamp of greatness to the book itself Alexey Tolstoy was born in In he published his first full length work Nikita's Childhood In he fled from the Bolshevik government and settled in Paris In he asked for and received permission to return home For the next twenty four years he lived in Russia until his death in.
