"Anna Karenina" was begun in 1873, seven years after the publication of "War & Peace," and appeared in installments from 1875-1877. It's one of Tolstoy's masterpieces, written at the height of his power & reflecting almost every aspect of his method & attitudes.

Set in the period following the Emancipation of the Serfs in 1861, a time of intense social change, it's the story of a woman who refuses to be fettered by social conventions, the wife of a government bureaucrat who falls in love with a rich army officer & leaves husband & child for her lover.

As Matthew Arnold wrote, "We are not to take 'Anna Karenina' as a work of art; we are to take it as a piece of life."
