Boekbeschrijving

From the award-winning translators of Anna Karenina and The Brothers Karamazov comes this magnificent new translation of Tolstoy's masterwork.

Nominated as one of America&;s best-loved novels by PBS&;s The Great American Read

War and Peace broadly focuses on Napoleon&;s invasion of Russia in 1812 and follows three of the most well-known characters in literature: Pierre Bezukhov, the illegitimate son of a count who is fighting for his inheritance and yearning for spiritual fulfillment; Prince Andrei Bolkonsky, who leaves his family behind to fight in the war against Napoleon; and Natasha Rostov, the beautiful young daughter of a nobleman who intrigues both men.

A s Napoleon&;s army invades, Tolstoy brilliantly follows characters from diverse backgrounds&;peasants and nobility, civilians and soldiers&;as they struggle with the problems unique to their era, their history, and their culture. And as the novel progresses, these characters transcend their specificity, becoming some of the most moving&;and human&;figures in world literature.
