The same issue of being loyal to stylistic sound effects pervades the Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky translation of War and Peace. Talk about getting your money's worth. Just prepared a reading schedule for and, based on a brief conversation we had, suggestions for how to proceed with online discussion of Leo Tolstoy's War & Peace, translated by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. I chose the Pevear/Volokhonsky by the way. I've since read the Pevear/Volokhonsky translations of Anna Karenina and War and Peace, and have their translation of The Brothers Karamazov sitting on my to-be-read shelf. But, when it comes to Tolstoi I really, really like the translations by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky (they did the War & Peace I'm working on). There are essentially twelve English translations (or versions) of War and Peace to date, (if you count Bromfield's so-called "Disney Version" and Komroff's radical abridgement of the Garnett translation -- see my notes below.) As I have already alluded to, abridgements of the work are on the market and I cannot generally .. The Stieg Larsson books, the Pevear and Volokhonsky translation of “War and Peace,” and Laurie Sheck's “A Monster's Notes,” to name just a few (many more from his portfolio are delightfully catalogued on his Web site). Somewhere in there Deirdre gave me the new 3.8 pound Richard Pevear / Larissa Volokhonsky translation of War and Peace that everybody is raving about. 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. Take this short sentence: Kápli kápali.
