Pozdnyshev is a character in Leo Tolstoy’s The Kreutzer Sonata. Pozdnyshev tells the narrator the story of his life and marriage, which is about as toxic and envious as Andrea Yates and Iago singing You Oughta Know. Pozdnyshev is allegedly Tolstoy’s mouthpiece for his own feelings about marriage and sex, which he calls the piglike behavior. Download for free here.
