La Guerre et la Paix. Tolstoj
War and Peace tell the story of Natasha Rostov, Andrej Bolkonski and Pierre Bezoechov against the threatening background of Napoleons failed march into Russia. In War and Peace Tolstoy entwines glittering images of the life of 19th century Russian aristocracy with reflections on grand themes like free will and the nature and meaning of history. The superb translation is by Antony Briggs, and the book includes Orlando Figes’ afterword on the vast scope of Tolstoys novel and his depiction of Russian identity, as well as ample notes, appendices, and maps.
