Tolstoy's "War and Peace" has been described, "Love and battle, terror and desire, life and death. It's a book that you don't just read, you live." It has also been called, "A triumphant affirmation of human life." The fact of the matter is that Tolstoy's subjects of war and peace can get under our skins, into our brains, melt into our hearts. We have all been affected by war, in one way or another, and we all strive for peace.
But this book is not about Tolstoy, it only borrows his title. It's about how a group of connected international poets (80 writers from 20 countries) look at Tolstoy's themes, war and peace. Theirs is a powerful message. Their feelings run deep and their words are strong, sometimes not for the faint of heart. But then again, war and peace are not for the faint of heart either.
