Leo Tolstoy's most personal novel, Anna Karenina scrutinizes fundamental ethical and theological questions through the tragic story of its eponymous heroine. Anna is desperately pursuing a good, "moral" life, standing for honesty and sincerity. Passion drives her to adultery, and this flies in the face of the corrupt Russian bourgeoisie. Meanwhile, the aristocrat Konstantin Levin is struggling to reconcile reason with passion, espousing a Christian anarchism that Tolstoy himself believed in.

"The truth is we are not to take Anna Karenina as a work of art: we are to take it as a piece of life." - Matthew Arnold"Anna Karenina is a perfect work of art. This novel contains a humane message that has not yet been heeded in Europe and that is much needed by the people of the western world." - Fyodor Dostoevsky"What I confidently named the greatest social novel of world literature is in fact a novel against society." - Thomas Mann"Tolstoy's greatness lies in not turning the story into sentimental tragedy . . . His world is huge and vast, filled with complex family lives and great social events. His characters are well-rounded presences. They have complete passions: a desire for love, but also an inner moral depth." - Malcolm Bradbury"It's so fantastic that it can be read over and over again . . . I don't know any other writer who is so adept at peopling their pages." - Maggie O'Farrell"Tolstoy is the greatest Russian writer of prose fiction." - Vladimir Nabokov"The new translation into accurate and readable English by Kyril Zinovieff and Jenny Hughes surpasses even the most recent version by Richard Pevear and Melissa Volokhonsky . . . [it] makes the word order sound as natural in English as was the original in Tolstoy's Russian." - The Times Literary Supplement"Kyril Zinovieff has produced a fine, intelligent, sensitive translation that brings the Russian text alive in a way that immediately enriches a reader's awareness of its intentions and nuances." - East West Review The truth is we are not to take Anna Karenina as a work of art: we are to take it as a piece of life. - Matthew Arnold Anna Karenina is a perfect work of art.
