Leo Tolstoy (1828 – 1910) is one of the most famous Russian writers and thinkers and is considered one of the greatest writers in the world, he was acknowledged the head of the Russian literature during his lifetime. His work marked a new stage of the development of the Russian and world’s realism and created a bridge between the classic novel of the XIX century and the literature of the XX century. The story Hatred Is Sweet, But God Is Strong is a parable of a kind master and a slave of his who tried to anger him and show to other slaves, that he was just like anyother master. However is appears to be a struggle between not two humans, but the ultimate forces. This is a story that everyone will find edifying, but in his or her ownway.
