The Power Of Darkness

The Power Of Darkness by Leo Tolstoy


Leo Tolstoy’s 1886 tragic drama of greed, deceit and desperation. What do these things do to a soul?

It’s late 19th century rural Russia. Nikita works as a labourer for a “well-to-do” peasant farmer. His mother, Matryona, wants more for her son. The depths they plunder to escape this desperately oppressive poverty are surely too dark.. but then they get darker.

“The Power of Darkness is a social picture at once appalling and gripping.” Emma Goldman
