Description

War and Peace is one of the greatest monuments in world literature. Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, it examines the relationship between the individual and the relentless march of history. Here are the universal themes of love and hate, ambition and despair, youth and age, expressed with a swirling vitality which makes the book as accessible today as it was when it was first published in 1869. Neville Jason read the abridged version of War and Peace and proved his marathon powers with his outstanding performance of Proust's Remembrance of Things Past. These alone make him the ideal person to essay Tolstoy's epic. The recording will run to fifty-one CDs, some seventy hours, and we have divided it into two volumes. Translation by Louise and Aylmer Maude.
