War and Peace
by Leo Tolstoy
War and Peace Volume 4, Part 1, Chapter 13 Summary
- Pierre stays in this shed for four weeks with about twenty other prisoners. Later he would remember only Platon.
- Platon is a round ball of a man, full of energy and positive vibes. He knows how to do almost everything – he cooks, sews, makes shoes, and so on.
- He likes to talk a lot about himself and his life, mostly through peasant proverbs. He also likes to sing.
- For Pierre, he will always be “the unfathomable, round, and eternal embodiment of the spirit of simplicity and truth” (126.96.36.199).
