Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina

By Leo Tolstoy, Leo Tolstoy

This new translation has been acclaimed as the definitive English version of Tolstoy's masterpiece. The volume contains an introduction and a preface by John Bayley.

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 jealousy 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 translation by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky has been acclaimed as the definitive English version of Tolstoy's masterpiece. The volume contains an introduction and a preface by John Bayley.
