The Kreutzer Sonata is a novella by Leo Tolstoy, named after Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata. The novella was published in 1889, and was promptly censored by the Russian authorities. The work is an argument for the ideal of sexual abstinence and an in-depth first-person description of jealous rage.
"Take that "Kreutzer Sonata", for example, take its first movement, the presto: can one really allow it to be played in a drawing-room full of women in low-cut dresses? To be played, and then followed by a little light applause,-- and talk about the latest society gossip? --The generation of all that feeling and energy, which are quite inappropriate--and which aren't allowed any outlet, can't have anything but a harmful effect. On me--that piece had the most shattering effect.”
