Summary: In 1861-62, the great Russian novelist founded and ran his own school on his estate at Yasnaya Polyana. Brimming with progressive and sometimes radical ideas on schooling, Tolstoy undertook to teach the peasant children reading, history, arithmetic, and imaginative writing. The school was a paradise for Tolstoy, and he published a flurry of essays about his teaching experiences. Several describe his lessons in fiction writing. Tolstoy As Teacher features the most important of these e
ssays -- among them the famous ''Are the Peasant Children to Learn to Write from Us, or Are We to Learn from the Peasant Children?'' -- and two short stories by Tolstoy's students. The collection also includes an introductory essay that examines the role of the school in Tolstoy's life and work, an annotated bibliography, and an essay with ideas on how to use Tolstoy's fiction to inspire students to write imaginatively. This book will surprise and delight writers, teachers of imaginative writing from elementary to college level, teachers of English and other subjects, and anyone interested in education or in Tolstoy's work and thought.
