"Peter the Great" is an epochal historical novel dedicated to the greatest of Russian monarchs. An impeccably written epic, unique in style and scale of events, which depicts one of the most vivid and difficult periods in the history of Russia - the time when it was ruled by Peter the Great - emperor, military commander and reformer.
The creation of the novel, which would become one of Tolstoy's most famous works, was the fruit of sixteen years of labor and a great deal of research that included research by historians, notes by contemporaries of the emperor, diaries, letters, decrees, diplomatic reports, court documents, and literary monuments of the era. Thanks to this research, and, of course, to the author's great talent, the book ranks among the best novels in Russian literature - it not only depicts in detail all the important events of Peter the Great's reign, but also manages to breathe real life into the historical figures within it.
