War and Peace: (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition) - Paperback

2006, ISBN: 0143039997

[SR: 477451], Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9780143039990], Rauer Buchschnitt, Penguin Classics, Penguin Classics, Book, [PU: Penguin Classics], 2006-11-28, Penguin Classics, "War and Peace," by Leo Tolstoy, is part of the "Barnes & Noble Classics"" "series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of "Barnes & Noble Classics": All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. "Barnes & Noble Classics "pulls together a constellation of influences--biographical, historical, and literary--to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. The most famous--and perhaps greatest--novel of all time, Tolstoy's "War and Peace" tells the story of five families struggling for survival during Napoleon's invasion of Russia. Among its many unforgettable characters is Prince Andrey Bolkonsky, a proud, dashing man who, despising the artifice of high society, joins the army to achieve glory. Badly wounded at Austerlitz, he begins to discover the emptiness of everything to which he has devoted himself. His death scene is considered one of the greatest passages in Russian literature. The novel's other hero, the bumbling Pierre Bezukhov, tries to find meaning in life through a series of philosophical systems that promise to resolve all questions. He at last discovers the Tolstoyan truth that wisdom is to be found not in systems but in the ordinary processes of daily life, especially in his marriage to the novel's most memorable heroine, Natasha. Both an intimate study of individual passions and an epic history of Russia and its people, "War and Peace" is nothing more or less than a complete portrait of human existence. Joseph Frank is Professor Emeritus of Comparative Literature at Princeton University and Professor Emeritus of Comparative Literature and Slavic Languages and Literature at Stanford University. He is the author of a five-volume study of Dostoevsky's life and work., 66093011, Klassiker, 66034011, Belletristik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 67924011, Historisch, 67216011, Populäre Belletristik, 66034011, Belletristik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 67926011, Krieg, 67216011, Populäre Belletristik, 66034011, Belletristik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher

A Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition of Tolstoy s great Russian epic, now a miniseries on AE, The History Channel, and Lifetime starring Lily James (Downtown Abbey), Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood), and James Norton (Grantchester) Set against the sweeping panoply of Napoleon s invasion of Russia, War and Peace--presented here in the first new English translation in forty years--is often considered the greatest novel ever written. At its center are Pierre Bezukhov, searching for meaning in his life; cynical Prince Andrei, ennobled by wartime suffering; and Natasha Rostov, whose impulsiveness threatens to destroy her happiness. As Tolstoy follows the changing fortunes of his characters, he crafts a view of humanity that is both epic and intimate and that continues to define fiction at its most resplendent.
