War and Peace: Original Version Cover

 

Review-A-Day

"Although the 'original version' is a far cry from the final version of the novel, Andrew Bromfield's translation is extremely good and has many beautiful moments, particularly in the descriptions of landscape." Alexander Nemser, The New Republic (read the entire New Republic review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A sweeping, romantic saga of two noble families and their intertwined destiny, and a panoramic portrait of Russian society at the time of the Napoleonic Wars, Tolstoy's unforgettable masterpiece has inspired love and devotion in its readers for generations.

Now read the original version of Russia's most famous novel, which never made it to publication in Tolstoy's lifetime. Undiscovered for more than a century, this edition — with its subtly different characters, dialogue, and ending — is essential reading for devotees of Tolstoy and new readers alike: it is world-class fiction in its most vivid and vital form.

Synopsis:

The original version of Russias most famous novel, which never made it to publication in Tolstoys lifetime. Undiscovered for more than a century, this edition features subtle differences in the characters, dialogue, and ending.

About the Author

Count Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy, commonly known the world over as Leo Tolstoy, was born in 1828 in Tula, near Moscow. His parents, who both died when he was young, belonged to the Russian nobility, and throughout his life Tolstoy remained conscious of his aristocratic heritage. His novels War and Peace and Anna Karenina have become classics of world literature, and he is revered as one of the greatest writers of the nineteenth century. He died in 1910 at the age of eighty-two.
