This paper examines how, historically, Leo Tolstoy writes from the perspective of a country in turmoil and how his social commentary is closely intertwined with the more general search for personal fulfillment. The result is the timeless quality of the works that are still enjoyed by a wide readership today. It explores how it is this timeless quality of his work, based upon his search for meaning in life, that most prominently begs for Tolstoy's inclusion in today's literary canon, and it substantiates this assertion through a review of "War and Peace", "Anna Karenina", and "On Life".
