A Confession
by Leo Tolstoy, translator not mentioned
Written in 1882, and published two years later, this work is written by a 51-year-old Tolstoy who looks back, considering his life thusfar a failure (despite his tremendous success and status as a writer, having already published War and Peace and Anna Karenina). Chapters 4-7 deal with a period during which he struggled with suicide.

This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published before January 1, 1923. It may be copyrighted outside the U.S. (see Help:Public domain).
