Save to active project

THE names by which the principal characters are usually known are given in capitals. The stressed syllable is marked with an acute accent; ë is pronounced yo, and always stressed. The stress on some of the principal place-names is also given below.THE BEZÚKHOVS
PIERRE, his son, legitimized after his father's death, becomes Count Peter BEZÚJKHOV.
Princess CATICHE, Pierre's cousin.
COUNTESS Nataly ROSTÓVA, his wife.
Count NICHOLAS Rostóv (Nikólenka), their elder son.
Count Peter Rostóv (PÉTYA), their second son.
Countess VÉRA Rostóva, their elder daughter.
Countess Nataly Rostóva (NATÁSHA), their younger daughter.
SÓNYA, a poor member of the Rostóv family circle.
BERG, Alphonse Kárlich, an officer of German extraction who marries Véra.
PRINCE Nicholas BOLKÓNSKY, a retired General-in-Chief.
PRINCE ANDREW Bolkónsky, his son.
PRINCESS MARY (Másha) Bolkónskaya, his daughter.
Princess Elizabeth Bolkónskaya (LISE), Andrew's wife.
TÍKHON, Prince N. Bolkónsky's attendant
ALPÁTYCH, his steward.
Prince HIPPOLYTE Kurágin, his elder son.
So stressed by Maude, probably on the analogy of the place-name; but A. B. Goidenveizer ( Vblízi Tolstogo, Moscow 1959, p. 371) reports that Tolstoy himself always stressed it Róstov.
