Translating War & Peace

February 16, 2014

Have you made it all the way through Tolstoy's "War and Peace?" Well, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky  took on the task of retranslating the classic.

Larissa’s Russian and Richard's American. Together they’ve translated many great Russian writers. They told Steve Paulson why we need a new translation of “War and Peace.”
