"Anna Karenina" tells of the doomed love affair between the
sensuous and rebellious Anna and the dashing officer, Count
Vronsky. Tragedy unfolds as Anna rejects her passionless marriage
and must endure the hypocrisies of society. Set against a vast and
richly textured canvas of nineteenth-century Russia, the novel's
seven major characters create a dynamic imbalance, playing out the
contrasts of city and country life and all the variations on love
and family happiness. While previous versions have softened the
robust, and sometimes shocking, quality of Tolstoy's writing,
Pevear and Volokhonsky have produced a translation true to his
powerful voice. This award-winning team's authoritative edition
also includes an illuminating introduction and explanatory notes.
Beautiful, vigorous, and eminently readable, this "Anna Karenina"
will be the definitive text for generations to come.
