Reading “War and Peace” after some life experience

I have to say that I get definite “domestic violence” vibes from the brief exchanges between Prince Andrew Bolkonski and his wife, Princess Lise Bolkonskaya in the beginning of the book, when Pierre visits the two in their home after Anna Pavlovna’s soirée. The exchange between Andrew and Lise took place in front of Pierre, so there’s nothing explicit. But the language and attitudes certainly struck a chord.
