    • Synopsis
    • The Kreutzer Sonata is a novella by Leo Tostoy, published in 1889 and promptly censored by the Russian authorities. The work is an argument for the ideal sexual abstinence and an in-depth first-person description of jealous rage. The main character Pozdnyshev relates the events leading up to his killing his wife; in his analysis, the root cause for the deed were the "animal excesses" and "swinish connection" governing the relation between the sexes. A young man with burning glance, Andrew W., tells an older, sympathetic Traveller on the same plane flight the story of how he killed his beloved wife, Antonia.
