Description
Leo Tolstoy's grand masterpiece—a timeless saga of family, love, and loss in Russia surrounding the War of 1812."The greatest of all novelists...what else can we call the author of War and Peace?" asked Virginia Woolf rhetorically—and literary luminaries the world over have agreed with her. The saga stands alone in its vast scope and minute detail, its immense diversity and final unity. Set in the years leading up to and culminating in Napoleon's disastrous Russian invasion, the novel focuses upon an entire society torn by conflict and change. Here is humanity in all its innocence and corruption, wisdom and folly, painful defeats and enduring triumphs. Here is the seemingly effortless artistry of a master capable of portraying with equal power the clash of armies and the solitary anguish of the heart. Here, finally, is a view of history and personal destiny that is perpetually modern.Complete and Unabridged Translated by Ann Dunnigan Includes an Introduction by Pat Conroy And an Afterword by John Hockenberry

Tolstoy said War and Peace is not a novel, even less is it a poem, and still less a historical chronicle. Large sections, especially the later chapters, are a philosophical discussion rather than narrative. Tolstoy also said that the best Russian literature does not conform to standards and hence hesitated to call War and Peace a novel. Instead, he regarded Anna Karenina as his first true novel. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, no single English novel attains the universality of Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace., War and Peace is a vast epic centred on Napoleon's war with Russia. While it expresses Tolstoy's view that history is an inexorable process which man cannot influence, he peoples his great novel with a cast of over five hundred characters. Three of these, the artless and delightful Natasha Rostov, the world-weary Prince Andrew Bolkonsky and the idealistic Pierre Bezukhov illustrate Tolstoy's philosophy in this novel of unquestioned mastery. This translation is one which received Tolstoy's approval., War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Out of this complex narrative emerges a profound examination of each individual's place in the historical process. War and Peace is an affirmation of life itself., War and Peace tracks the evolution of five aristocratic families during the Napoleonic wars. Individual stories intertwine as each of Tolstoy's memorable characters seek fulfillment, fall in love, make mistakes, and become scarred by war in different ways., War and peace, War and peace /Leo Tolstoy ; translated by Constance Garnett ; introduction by A.N.
