Anna Karenina seems to have everything – beauty, wealth, popularity and an adored son. But she feels that her life is empty until the moment she encounters the impetuous officer Count Vronsky. Their subsequent affair scandalizes society and family alike and soon brings jealously and bitterness in its wake. Contrasting with this tale of love and self-destruction is the vividly observed story of Levin, a man striving to find contentment and a meaning to his life – and also a self-portrait of Tolstoy himself.

This new translation has been acclaimed as the definitive version of Tolstoy’s masterpiece. It also contains an introduction by Richard Pevear and a preface by John Bayley.

- Aimez ceux qui vous haïssent... murmura Dolly.Karénine eut un sourire de mépris: ces mots qu'il ne connaissait que trop bien, ne pouvaient s'appliquer à sa situation.- On peut aimer ceux qui vous haïssent, mais non point ceux que vous haïssez. Pardonnez-moi de vous avoir troublée, à chacun suffit ...

3.0 Review: Anna Karenina
No one is probably more upset by my three-star rating than I am. I love the Russian greats. I love epic novels. I love Tolstoy. And yet, despite Anna Karenina’s status as a classic, this one only mildly worked for me. First of all, the story is great. I love the drama. Whether it be Kitty and Vronsk...
