Tatyana Behrs, the younger sister of Tolstoy’s wife Sofia, was a regular visitor to the Tolstoys’ family home at Yasnaya Polyana. Sofia found it hard to adapt to the isolated and somewhat austere life on the country estate, and Tatyana’s presence brought a welcome injection of joy, vivacity and girlish giggles. Tolstoy himself had always had a great fondness for little Tatyana. Her liveliness and spontaneity offered the inspiration for the character of Natasha Rostov. Many episodes of the novel, such as the young Natasha asking Boris to kiss her doll, or Natasha’s despair after being abandoned by Anatole, are taken from real incidents in Tatyana’s life. In modern Russian, the words for ‘peace’ and ‘world’ are identical, a fact which has led to an urban myth that Tolstoy intended his novel to be called War and World.

Don’t be intimidated by the size and weight of the novel – read it in little chunks; there is no need for it to be burdensome if you regularly devote reasonable amounts of time. Nor should it interfere with your studies, and it can take you through all six weeks or more if you wish. I loved the Peaver and Volokhonsky English translation, which conveys the simple, homely eloquence of Tolstoy’s style, but any decent one in your native language will suffice, although the original Russian is of course preferable if you are lucky enough to speak the language.

The author said that he could justify every line yet the book’s opacity means that it’s hard to agree. All of these seem pertinent to me now, although perhaps not as much as the lesson – offered by Groskop – that can be gleaned from Pierre , when he takes an eternity to eat a salty baked potato. As well as all those more abstract messages that Tolstoy espouses, the simple one that you should put salt on your potato and eat it in a leisurely fashion as if it is a special treat, is the most profound.

But the fact is that the rise of boxset snobbery ignores the very particular joys of reading. Jacobs advises dipping in to various works indiscriminately as a way of unlocking the past pleasures you experienced as a child. Tolstoy’s pre-occupation with the problems of historical record led him to digress from the story of the fictional characters into chapters where he debated the meaning of history as a discipline and how it shapes our understanding of human civilisation. The second part of the novel’s epilogue is entirely devoted to such writing. From the first publication to this day, opinion is divided on the interest and relevance of these historical essays.

In more ordinary times, there is a greater sense of external normalcy to anchor to. But there is some truth to the suggestion the book’s wartime scenes are less intriguing as a whole, the internal lives of all involved more elemental in their need for fuel, rest, and bloodlust. Charlotte travels back in time to 1918, when the war is still taking place, and ends up in lodging with the Chisel Brown family.
