To read Tolstoy’s early sketch, The Raid, and his first novel, The Cossacks, is to enter the workshop of a great writer and thinker. In The Raid Tolstoy explores the nature of courage itself, a theme central to War and Peace. In The Cossacks he sets for all the motifs of his whole future life and his work. The hero is a young man about town who has squandered half his fortune – and his life and retires to the desultory existence of a regiment stationed in mountainous Cossack country, where he takes part in the daily life of a Cossack village. But his love for the beautiful Maryanka precipitates a conflict between the beliefs that “Happiness lies in living for others” and a passion that sweeps self abnegation aside. As Romain Rolland says, :The full force of Tolstoy’s descriptive powers is already expressed in this splendid novel and Tolstoy’s realism shows itself  with equal force in depicting human character.”
