Kutuzov seemed preoccupied and did not listen to what the general was saying. He screwed up his eyes with a dissatisfied look as he gazed attentively and fixedly at these prisoners, who presented a specially wretched appearance.

I filled out the room with a late-eighteenth-century Chippendale sofa, the oldest piece of furniture in the White House collection, and an antique table bought by Mary Todd Lincoln, on which we put the silver commemorative cup from the 1898 treaty. When I got my books and CDs in, and hung some of my old pictures, including an 1860 photo of Abraham Lincoln and Yousuf Karshs famous photograph of Churchill, the place had a comfortable, peaceful atmosphere in which I would spend countless hours in the years ahead.
The division into books, like all similar divisions, is probablylater than the age of Plato. The natural divisions are five in number;--(1) Book I and the first half of Book II down to the paragraphbeginning, "I had always admired the genius of Glaucon andAdeimantus," which is introductory; the first book containing arefutation of the popular and sophistical notions of justice, andconcluding, like some of the earlier Dialogues, without arriving atany definite result. To this is appended a restatement of the natureof justice according to common opinion, and an answer is demanded tothe question --What is justice, stripped of appearances? The seconddivision (2) includes the remainder of the second and the whole of thethird and fourth books, which are mainly occupied with theconstruction of the first State and the first education. The thirddivision (3) consists of the fifth, sixth, and seventh books, in whichphilosophy rather than justice is the subject of inquiry, and thesecond State is constructed on principles of communism and ruled byphilosophers, and the contemplation of the idea of good takes theplace of the social and political virtues. In the eighth and ninthbooks (4) the perversions of States and of the individuals whocorrespond to them are reviewed in succession; and the nature ofpleasure and the principle of tyranny are further analyzed in theindividual man. The tenth book (5) is the conclusion of the whole,in which the relations of philosophy to poetry are finally determined,and the happiness of the citizens in this life, which has now beenassured, is crowned by the vision of another.
