Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
One of Penguin Classics's most popular translations- now also in our elegant black spine dress


Review:
"The best translation so far of Tolstoy’s masterpiece into English."
—Robert A. Maguire, professor emeritus of Russian studies, Columbia University

"In Tolstoy’s work part of the translator’s difficulty lies in conveying not only the simplicity but the subtlety of the book’s scale and effect. . . . Briggs has rendered both with a particular exactness and a vigorous precision not to be found, I think, in any previous translation."
—John Bayley, author of Elegy for Iris

Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 128 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Leo Tolstoy s War and Peace is a sprawling epic covering the impact of Napoleon s disastrous invasion of Russia on five different families. This Penguin Classics edition is translated with an introduction and notes by Anthony Briggs, with an afterword by Orlando Figes, author of A People s Tragedy: Russian Revolution 1891-1924 . At a glittering society party in St Petersburg in 1805, conversations are dominated by the prospect of war. Terror swiftly engulfs the country as Napoleon s army marches on Russia, and the lives of three young people are changed forever. The stories of quixotic Pierre, cynical Andrey and impetuous Natasha interweave with a huge cast, from aristocrats and peasants to soldiers and Napoleon himself. In War and Peace , Tolstoy entwines grand themes - conflict and love, birth and death, free will and faith - with unforgettable scenes of nineteenth-century Russia, to create a magnificent epic of human life in all its imperfection and grandeur. Anthony Briggs superb translation combines stirring, accessible prose with fidelity to Tolstoy s original, while Orlando Figes afterword discusses the novel s vast scope and depiction of Russian identity. This edition also contains appendices, notes, a list of prominent characters and maps. Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) was born at Yasnaya Polyana, in central Russia. After marrying Sofya Behrs in 1862, Tolstoy settled down, managing his estates and writing two of his best-known novels, War and Peace (1869) and Anna Karenina (1878). In 1884 Tolstoy experienced a spiritual crisis, becoming an extreme moralist, rejecting the state, the church and private property. His last novel, Resurrection (1900), was written to raise money for the Doukhobor sect of Christian spiritualists. If you enjoyed War and Peace , you might also like Fyodor Dostoyevsky s The Brothers Karamazov . A masterpiece.This new translation is excellent . (Anthony Beevor). A book that you don t just read, you live . (Simon Schama). Bookseller Inventory # AAU9780140447934
