Question: What is War & Peace about?
Is it a war story or more of a love story. I know it's about Napoleon against Russia but is it more war or more love or more soldiers or what?
Also, what is the title in it's original Russian format?
"Война и мир" is the original Russian title. Means "War and Peace", or, as my Russian teacher said, more like "War and the People", since in the 19th century and earlier the word "mir" could mean either "peace" or "people, society". Anyway, it's a story of Napoleon's conflict with Russia through the eyes of the Russian aristocracy (hence the "people"), but it's a cross between a narrative and a philosophical essay.
Why not read it and find out!
