Master and Man
Leo Tolstoy's Master and Man (1895) presents the tragic story of Vasili Andreevich and Nikita. As they set out on a journey, they encounter a blinding snowstorm. Contrasting the Russian nobility and peasantry, Tolstoy's narrative teaches that the true pleasure in life is to please others.
