Anna Karenina
by Leo Tolstoy and David Magarshack and Priscilla Meyer




Overview -

Leo Tolstoy's evocative tale of doomed love--one of the greatest novels of the nineteenth century.

Upon it's publication, Anna Karenina startled the world with its powerful portrayal of the human need for love and happiness weighed against the rigid demands of society. Its heroine, the sensual, rebellious Anna, renounces a respectable yet stifling marriage for an extramarital affair that offers a taste of passion even as it ensnares her in a trap for destruction. Her story contrasts with that of Levin, a young, self-doubting agnostic who takes a different path to fulfillment and finds faith and happiness in an age of repression.

Anna Karenina has been called Tolstoy's spiritual autobiography. Anna and Levin personify his lifelong struggle to reconcile his physical desires and intellectual ideals in order to lead a more meaningful existence.

Translated by David Magarshack
Includes an Introduction by Priscilla Meyer
