Synopsis:
Anna Karenina is the wife of a prominant Russian government official. She leads a correct but confining upper-middle-class existence. She seems content with her life as a proper companion to her dignified, unaffectionate husband and an adoring mother to her young son, until she meets Count Vronsky, a young officer of the guards. He pursues her and she falls madly in love with him. Her husband refuses to divorce her, so she gives up everything, including her beloved son, to be with Vronsky. After a short time, Vronsky becomes bored and unhappy with their life as social outcasts. He abandons her, returns to the military and is immediately accepted back into society. Anna, a fallen woman, shunned by respectable society, throws herself under a train.

Review:
"What is at the core...of 'Anna Karenina'? It is Tolstoy's concept of the heart at war with the structure of society....The characters' electrifying irrational acts are the acts of the heart brought to a desperate edge by the pressure of society."

Tom Wolfe, Harper's, 11/1989
