The Image of Home and the «Thought of Family» in L. N. Tolstoy’s Poetics

Zinovyev Aleksey Viktorovich, Moscow State Regional Socio-Humanitarian Institute

Tolstoy’s poetics has never been studied in the combination of the «image of home» with the «thought of family». The relationship between these two categories is clearly visible, especially in the novels War and Peace, Anna Karenina, and Resurrection. Having considered these works by Tolstoy, written in different periods of his creative work, we can unwittingly notice the obvious relationship between the «image of home» and the «thought of family». It performs various functions in the novels, and it is also important in the disclosure of characters’ features and in understanding the author’s attitude towards them.
