A Primavera na Rússia

Bees are important in Tolstoy. They inspire one of the most important similes in War and Peace, and also feature several times in Anna Karenina, often at crucial moments.
Having written a biography a few years ago, I knew that Tolstoy had developed a typically obsessive but short-lived passion for beekeeping in the 1860s.
