Russian author Leo Tolstoy is ranked among the world’s top writers and wrote the world-renowned novels ‘War and Peace,’ ‘Anna Karenina‘ and ‘The Death of Ivan Ilyich’. To this day, Tolstoy’s novels are considered among the finest achievements of literary work with War and Peace cited as the greatest novel ever written.
Leo Tolstoy was born at his family’s estate, Yasnaya Polyana, in the Tula Province of Russia on September 9, 1828. He was the youngest of four boys. In 1830, when Tolstoy’s mother, Princess Volkonskaya, died, his father’s cousin took over caring for the children until he died when his aunt took over caring for the children.
Tolstoy received his primary education at home from German and French tutors. In 1843, he enrolled in an Oriental languages program at the University of Kazan, but failed to excel as a student. His low grades forced him to transfer to an easier law program. Prone to partying, Tolstoy ultimately left the University of Kazan in 1847, without a degree. He returned to his parents’ estate, where he made a go at becoming a farmer but his journey to becoming the perfect farmer soon proved to be a failure.
