'Despite the tangle of ideas in my mind . . . I was young, innocent, free, and therefore almost happy' Leo Tolstoy began his trilogy, Childhood, Boyhood, Youth,in his early twenties. Although he would in his old age famously dismiss it as an 'awkward mixture of fact and fiction', generations of readers have not agreed, finding the novel to be a charming and insightful portrait of inner growth against the background of a world limned with extraordinary clarity, grace and colour. Evident too in its brilliant account of a young person's emerging awareness of the world and of his place within it are many of the stances, techniques and themes that would come to full flower in the immortal War and Peaceand Anna Karenina, and in the other great works of Tolstoy's maturity. Judson Rosengrant's lucid new translation conveys the freshness, poetry, and power of Tolstoy's early prose, while his introduction looks at Tolstoy's early development and the complex relationship between the trilogy and his life. The edition also contains a biographical chronology, suggestions for further reading, extensive historical notes and a list of characters.

The funny thing about “Childhood/Boyhood/Youth” is that it’s a comedy; Tolstoy didn’t write a lot of comedy. Actually it’s very simple comedy, without even a romance. I define comedy as being the kind of story where there’s little plot/drama, as opposed to drama, where there’s more. In drama there’s conflict; there’s blood, whether it’s controversy about countries or individuals, or even just pairs. In comedy less happens, even in adventure comedy like the Narnia books, but it’s not gritty and horrible and realistic, grim. Romantic comedy has some plot, but it troubles you only in stirring you around. Simple, observational comedy can be somewhat realistic, the way that “Seinfeld” or “White Teeth” can be said to be less like fantastic adventure than they are like it. I suppose it all depends on how you see things; some people think that romcom flicks don’t glamorize Hollywood, right. Anyway, it should probably be added that “comedy” for me doesn’t necessarily mean literally “funny”, as in laughter, especially since I often don’t laugh when other people do; it’s all too interesting. And anyway, people don’t always literally laugh along with laugh tracks; sitcoms are just relaxing because they’re possibly less threatening than a ham and cheese sandwich is, (depending on your opinion of factory farming, that is, which will Never appear on a sitcom, not even as a joke).

Anyway, Tolstoy didn’t write much comedy; all three major novels of his are dramas. “Anna Karenina” is personal drama; it’s about individual people, but it’s not meant to be Austen where we can’t be bothered about most things because it’s so light. It’s personal crisis drama if you think it’s an “Anna” book, and personal fulfillment drama, work life balance, if you think it’s a “Levin” book. There are romances, (like there are in horror movies), but comedies don’t end in death or religion. “War & Peace” and “Resurrection” are the even more distinctive social drama; the former being about a war and a nation, and the latter being about religion and politics.

But “Childhood/Boyhood/Youth” is a comedy, like a slew of “Seinfeld” episodes or a half-finished “White Teeth”. Not a whole lot happens. Tolstoy hated all his books because they’re more like Victorian TV than scriptures, but he really must have hated this one, if he ever thought about it. I’m not quite as puritanical, but I can see what he was driving at; it uses up your time without changing your life. Speaking as a non-historian, there’s nothing, I think, that you can learn from “Childhood/Boyhood/Youth” that you couldn’t learn from another book. All happy families are alike.
