Category: General Biography
In the late 1890s, the Petersburg secret police were following Tolstoy's every move; Russia's most celebrated writer was being treated like a major criminal. Tolstoy was often seen in the company of his chief disciple, Vladimir Chertkov. Who exactly was this man? Close to the Tsars and to the chief of the secret police, Chertkov represented the very things Tolstoy had renounced, such as class privilege, unlimited power and wealth. Yet, by the end of Tolstoy's life, Chertkov had established complete control over the writer and his legacy.
