Avariced ,

Great Collection — but NO FRENCH!!!

Very good collection with great translations, however, the french is translated right along with the Russian! Now, I don’t speak Russian nor have I been educated in it, but I hear that it is a similarly physical language as English. I do speak French and have been educated in it, and it is metaphysical, a troubling contrast from English. Many nuances and implications are lost in translation due to the unavoidable difference, and most of all the times and characters Tolstoy chose to speak French and Russian respectively have literary merit in his novels, as the two languages define the seperations of class and intelligence that permeate his works. Take note if you buy this — NO FRENCH!!! Though still good.
