2% done with War and Peace


First dance scene, though it’s with the Bear and a drunk Pierre. This chapter shows how rowdy the men are and how a war might do them some good since all they’re doing now is drinking. The best line in the entire chapter is from Dolokhov when he says to let Pierre attempt the same drunk stunt he just pulled off – it shows how little he cares for anyone, especially when they could be killed – foreshadow Petya.
