Collage 197

On these pages, Pierre is reflecting on his failed marriage to Helene as well as his duel with Dolokhov. Of all the characters, Tolstoy seems to give the most attention to Pierre's internal dialogues. He really tries to explore Pierre's inner world, much as a psychotherapist would.

"Who's right, and who's wrong? No one. You're alive -- so live: tomorrow you'll die, just as I could have died an hour ago. And is it worth suffering, when there's only a second left to live compared with eternity?" -- Lola
