War and Peace (Pevear/Volokhonsky Translation) Leo Tolstoy
Publisher: Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group

He puts this monolingual reader to shame. Two years ago I read a fresh translation by the couple Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky of Leo Tolstoy's epic War and Peace. War and Peace Update #1 · War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. It was translated by Max Hayward and Manya Harari, and lest I sound like I'm spitting in the eye of Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, I loved it. Two different translations can feel like two entirely different books. We're using the Pevear-Volokhonsky translation, but feel free to take up any of the available translations. In this case (War and Peace), the Kindle edition is NOT the translation that's mentioned in the product description (Pevear and Volokhonsky). Vintage Classic, New York, 2008. The War and Peace Reading Support Group begins on Monday, but we will start reading the Tolstoy this weekend. I highly recommend the Pevear and Volokhonsky translation. Translated from the Russian by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. And if you're thinking this series is really, really long, remember that War and Peace, in the Pevear./Volokhonsky translation, comes in at 1,273 pages. I'd remembered reading an article in The New Yorker on Constance Garnett and “Translation Wars.” I remember that the article led me to purchase the Rosemary Edmonds' translation of War and Peace. This translation is ideal because it sticks as closely to the text as possible. This quote sits atop the introduction to the new Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky translation of Boris Pasternak's Doctor Zhivago, and reflects what I have found to be most appealing about the novel - the often elegant nineteenth- century historical novel about the Russian revolution, an epic along the lines of War and Peace" or "a moving love story, or the lyrical biography of a poet, setting the sensitive individual against the grim realities of Soviet life.
