Tostoy's tome has been lauded as one of the greatest novels ever written, bringing us an intimate and familiar look at the vices and joy of humanity--love and lust, joy and terror, freedom and oppression--which are lived out through Tolstoy's cast of characters. Set against the majestic background of St. Petersburg and Moscow, we're witnesses to both the affair between married Anna Karenina and Count Vronsky and the marriage and family life of Kitty and Levin. Taking an incredibly detailed look at the relationships and motivations of humans, Tolstoy brings us an unsurpassed look at both 19th century Russia, and humanity's still tempestuous emotions. 740 pages, softcover.
Tolstoy's tumultuous tale of passion and self-discovery marks a turning point in the author's career. 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 late 19th-century Russia.
