    Default i need it much easier

    Unfortunately, the pilgrimage proved too arduous for the aging novelist. In November 1910, the stationmaster of a train depot in Astapovo, Russia opened his home to Tolstoy, allowing the ailing writer to rest. Tolstoy died there shortly after, on November 20, 1910. He was buried at the family estate, Yasnaya Polyana, in Tula Province, where Tolstoy had lost so many loved ones yet had managed to build such fond and lasting memories of his childhood.

    When you say "I need it much easier", do you mean that the passage is too difficult for you to understand and you want us to make it easier? If so, we will see if we can help you to understand it in short sections.

    Let's take the first sentence:

    Unfortunately, the pilgrimage proved too arduous for the ageing novelist.

    Do you understand the individual words in that sentence?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
