Translated by Louise and Aylmer Maude.

This Wordsworth Edition includes an exclusive Introduction by Henry and Olga Claridge, University of Kent at Canterbury.

War and Peace is a vast epic centred on Napoleon's war with Russia. While it expresses Tolstoy's view that history is an inexorable process which man cannot influence, he peoples his great novel with a cast of over five hundred characters.

Three of these, the artless and delightful Natasha Rostov, the world-weary Prince Andrew Bolkonsky and the idealistic Pierre Bezukhov illustrate Tolstoy's philosophy in this novel of unquestioned mastery. This translation is one which received Tolstoy's approval.

About the Author:

Leo Tolstoy (1828 -1910) is one of the major figures in world literature, and War and Peace is in contention to be considered the greatest novel ever written. But this is only one of his memorable works: Anna Karenina certainly equals it in popularity, and his shorter works, such as The Death of Ivan Ilyich are considered excellent.

From the Back Cover:

Among the great novels of the world, 'War and Peace' has long held pride of place because it fulfills, in its seamless interweaving of the historical and the personal, and its genius in registering the entire scale of human life, all the promise latent in the art of fiction itself.
