    This was perfect, simply perfect It s a masterful short story The wonderful Leo Tolstoy truly captured a grim aspect of human nature in just a few pages He uses a farmer s greed as an allegory for man s ever growing ambition What man has is never enough he is always trying to go forward to grasp bigger things But, in this, there is the ultimate danger of overreaching oneself Man can only go so far before he destroys himself Although he feared death, he could not stop If I stopped now, after comi [...]

    When I was reviewing another classic Russian short story of avarice, The Queen of Spades by Alexander Pushkin, I kept asking myself, what was that other Russian short story about greed, where the man is walking around the grasslands, stepping off the land he wants to claim, and who wrote it Well, it was Leo Tolstoy, duh, and this was the story thank you, Google It s simple, but the ending packs a punch, and it s always stuck with me.Tolstoy wrote this short story novelette in 1886, as a morality [...]

    El que mucho abarca, poco apreta Qu maravilla de cuento Por algo era el preferido de James Joyce Pajom me recuerda a Chichikov, el personaje principal de Almas Muertas de Nik lai G gol y al padre de Eug nie Grandet cuando se encerraba a contar sus monedas de oro Un cuento con una gran moraleja sobre los peligros de la avaricia sin limites Me encant

    This series is a great idea by Penguin I hated these two stories by Tolstoy though I now understand Dostoyevsky s disdain for him seeing someone writing these condescending tales of poverty oh they are so poor, they can t afford to die without ever knowing poverty must be annoying for those who really suffer from it like Dostoyevsky Throw in the forced religious context, the stories were not really my cup of tea oh, they are so poor they make tea out of the books after reading them.

    Se eu tivesse muita terra, n o temeria nem mesmo o pr prio diabo Assim falou Pakh m um campon s obcecado por ter sempre mais terras sempre mais Nunca estava satisfeito com o que tinha L gico que devemos ser ambiciosos em crescer na vida , mas esse senhor era demais uma ambi o sem fim a ponto de desafiar o diabo Um conto de Tolstoi que mexeu comigoorei.

    Preciosa edici n ilustrada para una historia muy cortita pero que transmite un importante mensaje el af n de poseer, de no tener nunca suficiente acaba pasando factura y es que la avaricia rompe el saco.

    How Much Land Does a Man Need Is Such a Wonderful Story Both stories had the same main idea centered around Mans Greed although How Much Land Does a Man Need was the bigger hit.I don t know if these stories were actually in the Bible, So I judged it as a complete fiction and that s why the 4 Stars.All Hail Russian Literature.

  15. Ana Carolina Maciel

    A genious short story about human being s greed that also works like a wake up call The last sentence was absolute perfection.

    La ambici n es innata al ser humano Y nuestra constante insatisfacci n ha sido en muchos casos el motor para los grandes avances tecnol gicos Sin embargo, Cu l es el costo a pagar para lograr nuestras metas Tolstoi nos ha regalado una lectura imperdible, con una moraleja cruda pero real Se animan

    Dijo Joyce que este era el mejor relato escrito por Tolst i en 1886 que hab a le do nunca aunque he le do tambi n que para Joyce era el mejor de Tolst i, no el mejor de todos, as que a saber Exagerando Joyce o no creo que s exagera el relato es espl ndido Necesita muy pocas palabras Lev Tolst i en su vis m s moralista para cifrar los anhelos humanos, nuestra codicia, el af n de riquezas, expresado en algo tan terrenal, como el deseo de ser due o y se or precisamente de unas tierras Pahom, que ha [...]

    My last book before I plunge myself back into The Brothers Karamazov and I chose this one It was a very good short story that is a morality tale but is not anvilicious The last words in this story are truer now than when Tolstoy wrote them Well, back to Dostoevsky

    God I love Tolstoy s writing and wisdom Two short stories How Much Land Does A Man Need and What Men Live By , the first one is about man always wanting than he actually needs and the second one is about Love and how men only live by love alone I was angry tonight but I m feeling peaceful right now Thank you Tolstoy.
