About Rose Fortini

 

Rose Fortini - Professional Summary:    

 

Leo Tolstoy is a writer that Rose Fortini finds inspirational. His epic novels of family life and changing European society continue to resonate with modern readers. Rose Fortini finds the realistic writing in his novels particularly engaging. Leo Tolstoy’s use of shifting tones in the narrative voice and the psychological insights he provides for his characters foreshadow much of modern literature. Rose Fortini found it fascinating to learn that Leo Tolstoy had taken the title for War and Peace from an essay by the French philosopher Pierre-Joseph Proudhon. Published about the time of Leo Tolstoy’s tour of Western Europe from 1860 to 1861, Proudhon’s La Guerre et la Paix would influence more than just Leo Tolstoy’s writing. Rose Fortini notes that upon his return from France, Tolstoy founded 13 schools for the children of the serfs who served on his family’s estate, a decision that may have been inspired by his meeting with Proudhon. Rose Fortini views Leo Tolstoy as an individual whose life spanned both the modern and the ancient world. Although his family owned serfs, Tolstoy would eventually free them. His belief in nonviolent resistance had a significant influence on Mohandas Gandhi, who read Tolstoy’s essay promoting a peaceful solution to the British Occupation of India. Inspired to contact the great writer, Gandhi exchanged several letters with Tolstoy in what would be the final year of Tolstoy’s life. The quote from Tolstoy that Rose Fortini particularly enjoys is, “the two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” An appropriate quote, Rose Fortini notes, as patience and time are required to read his monumental works.
