Kutuzov swayed his head, as much as to say: "How is one man to deal with it all?" and again listened to Denisov.
"Don't go away," he added, turning to Prince Andrew, who remained in the porch and listened to the general's report.

The Emperor listened in silence, not looking at Michaud.
He did not sing like a trained singer who knows he is listened to, but like the birds, evidently giving vent to the sounds in the same way that one stretches oneself or walks about to get rid of stiffness, and the sounds were always high-pitched, mournful, delicate, and almost feminine, and his face at such times was very serious.
