"And what is at the core of not only the private dramas but also the very psychology of 'Anna Karenina'? It is Tolstoy's concept of the heart at war with the structure of society. The dramas of Anna, Vronsky, Karenin, Levin, and Kitty would be nothing but slow-moving romances without the panorama of Russian society against which Tolstoy places them. The characters' electrifiying irrational acts are the acts of the heart brought to a desperate edge by the pressure of society."
Tom Wolfe, Harper's, 11/1989
