From the breathless excitement of 16-year-old Natasha Rostov's first ball, to Prince Andrei Bolkonsky's epiphany on the battlefield at Austerlitz, the novel abounds in memorable incidents, particularly those involving Pierre Bezukhov. A seeker after moral and spiritual truths, Pierre and his search for life's deeper meaning stand at the heart of this monumental book. A tale of strivers in a world fraught with conflict, social and political change, and spiritual confusion, Tolstoy's magnificent work continues to entertain, enlighten, and inspire readers around the world.
A reunião de toda a prosa breve do autor de Guerra e paz e Anna Kariênina.
Ao eleger o conto como seu principal meio de experimentação literária, Liev Tolstói produziu uma extensa obra capaz de revolucionar as características que consagraram o gênero. Em vez de meramente abordar a urbanização e a introdução das relações capitalistas que o regime tsarista trouxe como emblema dos novos tempos, o escritor voltou sua atenção para as raízes da sociedade russa, marcada pelo estilo de vida agrário que se situava no extremo oposto do processo de modernização das dinâmicas e dos costumes entre os séculos XIX e XX.
Esta edição abrange todos os contos de Tolstói — com exceção dos relatos inacabados e dos textos de maior fôlego, que podem ser classificados como novelas —, apresentação do tradutor Rubens Figueiredo e um célebre posfácio de Tolstói publicado em 1859, "Quem deve aprender a escrever com quem, as crianças camponesas conosco, ou nós com as crianças camponesas?".

“If everyone fought for their own convictions there would be no war.” ― Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace
War and Peace is an epic novel by Leo Tolstoy that explores the lives on individuals during the time of international conflict.
Widely regarded as a pinnacle in realist fiction, Tolstoy considered Anna Karenina his first true novel, after he came to consider War and Peace to be more than a novel. Fyodor Dostoyevsky declared it "flawless as a work of art." His opinion was shared by Vladimir Nabokov, who especially admired "the flawless magic of Tolstoy's style," and by William Faulkner, who described the novel as "the best ever written." The novel remains popular, as demonstrated by a 2007 poll of 125 contemporary authors in Time, which declared that Anna Karenina is the "greatest book ever written."
In early nineteenth-century Russia, the threat of Napoleon’s invasion looms, and the lives of millions are about to be changed forever. This includes Pierre Bezúkhov, illegitimate son of an aristocrat; Andrew Bolkónski, ambitious military scion; and Natásha Rostóva, compassionate daughter of a nobleman. All of them are unprepared for what lies ahead. Alongside their fellow compatriots—a catalog of enduring literary characters—Pierre, Andrew, and Natásha will be irrevocably torn between fate and free will.
Through the bonds of love and family, and all that can break them, Tolstoy examines the effects of war on every strata of society in his masterwork of intimate—and epic—social history.
Revised edition: Previously published as War and Peace, this edition of War and Peace (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
