Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

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, Tolstoy's tumultuous tale of passion and self-discovery.
This novel marks a turning point in the author's 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 Tolstoy's 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.
