4% done with War and Peace


It could be easy to dismiss this scene where Katerina seems oblivious to reason from Vassily, but I’ve actually known someone just like her, all caught up in what she thinks is going on with no idea as to what is actually happening. You can see why the old Prince Bezukhov leaves her nothing in the will.

The whole scene is disgraceful as these two plot over the will and everything they say is negative.
