War and Peace – A Comprehensive Review and Summary
Tolstoy wrote the notoriously thick book, the war and the brave, too big to look new. He describes in a very precise and detailed manner, both historically and descriptively, the responsibility of Napoleon to Moscow and his influence on many families in Russia. In the novel, there are a large number of characters, Napoleon and Alexander Cara from his figures to the fictitious character Tolstoy modeled on himself. This is one of the most famous books ever written; you will not meet an adult book fan who has not read.
"Their own act, which is the act of their own free will, must not be in history, but it is related to the whole history of history and the prerequisite for all eternity."
The actual Napoleonic invasion metaphorically serves the more intellectually cultural invasion: Russia has become increasingly Westernized and has made gradual cultural concessions that Tolstoy feels is a specialty of Russian culture. The book also criticizes Russia's superficial class, showing the virtues of the common humble soldiers of the brave Russian infantry, as opposed to the rich aristocratic families, and enjoys secular pleasures, despite the fact that their compatriots died in the battle; this includes the title of the novel, which shows that both war and peace can exist at the same time. At the same time, it is to show the whole of the people, not the individuals; the primary power of the novel is not the Napoleon and Kutuzov individuals, but the aggregate impact of the whole population
"If everybody fought for their own convictions, then there would be no war."
It is very difficult to describe why this book is so brilliant. Ask your friends and family about this book and they also lack the necessary superlatives. All I can say is that it combines great story-telling with a great philosophical depth; this novel should not be read loose, as it contains the philosophy of one of the greatest minds of the 19th century. Tolerants here explain everything about love, morality and leadership, death, faith, and reason. If you are willing to read 1400 pages, you will be deeply rewarded.
"Man can not hold anything until he is afraid of death, but whoever does not fear him will become part of it. If there was no suffering, man does not know his boundaries, he does not know himself."
