Anna Karenina tells of the doomed love affair among the sensuous and rebellious Anna and the rushing officer, count number Vronsky. Tragedy unfolds as Anna rejects her passionless marriage and needs to undergo the hypocrisies of society. Set opposed to an enormous and richly textured canvas of nineteenth-century Russia, the novel's seven significant characters create a dynamic imbalance, taking part in out the contrasts of urban and nation lifestyles and the entire diversifications on love and kinfolk happiness. whereas prior models have softened the strong, and occasionally surprising, caliber of Tolstoy's writing, Pevear and Volokhonsky have produced a translation actual to his strong voice. This award-winning team's authoritative variation additionally contains an illuminating advent and explanatory notes. appealing, energetic, and eminently readable, this Anna Karenina should be the definitive textual content for generations to return.

Oblonsky seemed to ponder. 42 of 1759 Anna Karenina ‘I’ll tell you what: let’s go to Gurin’s to lunch, and there we can talk. ’ ‘Dine together? ’ His face all at once took an expression of anger from the effort he was making to surmount his shyness. ‘What are the Shtcherbatskys doing? ’ he said.
