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 MagarshackIncludes an Introduction
