“How Much Land Does a Man Need” – Foreshadowing

Good Morning!

Please read (or listen to) part II of “How Much Land Does a Man Need?”.

The story is here: https://www.online-literature.com/tolstoy/2738/

Please answer the following (20 points):

  1. How does Tolstoy effectively foreshadow events?  In other words, what hints does he give out that this story might not end well.
  2. Pahom says: “If only I had more land, I shouldn’t fear the devil himself”
  • Does he mean the actual devil?
  • Is there a Devil?
  • Is it bad for him to boast?


Part II read aloud is 3:15 – 7:34 min here:


My Udemy classes are here – extremely low price and you have them forever.

I also sell custom made mugs. I’ll do personalized orders as well. They are all made in the United States – in Pennsylvania.

All of the mugs are here on Gearbubble. These are made in the USA, and if you don’t want to contribute to Amazon’s record profits during this time of CV19, the Gearbubble link is the one to use. Thank you!
