Book Description Tolstoy's tumultuous tale of passion and self-discovery marks a turning point in the author's career, when he turned from fiction toward faith. His compelling, emotional saga recounts the effects of nonconformist behavior-a society woman's adulterous affair and a landowner's unconventional quest for a meaningful existence-against a backdrop of the historic social changes that swept Russia during the late 19th century. Louise and Aylmer Maude translation.

Review:

"One of the greatest love stories in world literature" (Vladimir Nabokov)

"Tolstoy's historical and human sweep is breathtaking. His vision, humanity and his knowledge that love and pain are at the heart of life is the most important of all the profound truths revealed in this great novel" (Jonathan Dimbleby)

"In Anna Karenina, Tolstoy got totally inside the mind of a woman who is prepared to lose everything for the sake of man and who is so much in love that she commits suicide. I don't like her as a woman, but I think it is a brilliant portrait, unequalled in literature" (Amanda Craig Independent)

"I've read and re-read this novel and every time I find another layer in the story" (Philippa Gregory)

"I first read Anna Karenina 20 years ago when travelling across the Peruvian desert on a long bus journey, and it has stayed with me ever since" (Hugh Thomson Independent)

Book Description:

'The greatest love story I've ever read' Andrew Davies

Book Description Dover Publications. Paperback. Condition: New. 752 pages. Dimensions: 8.1in. x 5.1in. x 2.0in.A beautiful society wife from St. Petersburg, determined to live life on her own terms, sacrifices everything to follow her conviction that love is stronger than duty. A socially inept but warmhearted landowner pursues his own visions instead of conforming to conventional views. The adulteress and the philosopher head the vibrant cast of characters in Anna Karenina, Tolstoys tumultuous tale of passion and self-discovery. This novel marks a turning point in the authors career, the juncture at which he turned from fiction toward faith. Set against a backdrop of the historic social changes that swept Russia during the late nineteenth century, it reflects Tolstoys own personal and psychological transformation. Two worlds collide in the course of this epochal story: that of the old-time aristocrats, who struggle to uphold their traditions of serfdom and authoritarian government, and that of the Westernizing liberals, who promote technology, rationalism, and democracy. This cultural clash unfolds in a compelling, emotional drama of seduction, betrayal, and redemption. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
