Collage 556

Pierre has decided that he needs to assassinate Napoleon. Everyone has abandoned Moscow. The French are in the Kremlin! I copied out a few words from this passage:

... he suddenly felt that wealth, and power, and life -- all that people arrange and preserve with such care -- all this, if it is worth anything, is so only because of the pleasure with which one can abandon it all.

Pierre is in a state! -- Lola
