I think I prefer the Tolstoy of War and Peace and of Anna Karenina to the more fundamentalist and intensely angry Tolstoy who wrote this novella. When Marshal of the Nobility Pozdnyshev suspects his wife of having an affair with her music partner, his jealousy consumes him and drives him to murder.
She bears five children, and then receives contraceptives: Here is a sample: Love these Russian writers. One explains to the other how you can be transformed from ardent lover to cold blooded killer within a few short years of marriage. You see, it was not without reason that nature made it shameful and disgusting… and, as such, it should be recognized and known by all.
The main character, Pozdnyshev, relates the events leading up to his killing his wife: Constrained to the length of a train journey, two men sharing a carriage also share a secret. How can I explain to to you? And music transports me immediately into the condition of soul in which he who wrote the music found himself at that time. The Kreutzer Sonata-Reading Schedule.

Like him, Tolstoy was carrying out debauchery as a youngster; like him, Tolstoy insisted his intended wife read his journal entries which have recorded his previous conduct before their marriage; like him, Tolstoy was not very happy in his marriage; and like him, Tolstoy was tormented by jealousy towards a musician friend of his wife with whom she played together.
Most descriptions refer to it as a novella. Tolstoy does it again!
Gentle suggestions, is all. You do know it?
Recommend, if you want to read something short and kooky while looking like serious reader of Russian classics. His solution is that everyone should live lives of sexual abstinence, and the resulting lack of children would be a good thing because they’re too much trouble anyway.
He hates the medical profession for enabling contraception. Nel primo movimento, il pianoforte e il violino si rispondono l’un l’altro quasi a ricordare il rituale del corteggiamento.

What comes before that is a long diatribe against sex that is so violent as to read like pornography, even though its message of chastity is the precise opposite. His main argument was that even within marriage sex is immoral. All this is prelude to the story of his own unhappy marriage, leading to the scene several years later in which he murders his wife for what he believes is her adultery with the violinist with whom she has been playing Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata, which gives the novella its title.
Stage adaptation by Nancy Harris as a dramatic monologue. In any case, if I was Tolstoy’s wife, I would have stabbed him repeatedly with a rusty knife for publishing this. Beethoven only dedicated it to one Kreutzer a famous violinist of his day. Arranged marriages are better.
