about

"The best novel ever written." —William Faulkner
"A perfect work of art." —Fyodor Dostoyevsky
"One of the greatest love stories in world literature." —Vladimir Nabokov

Considered by some to be the greatest novel ever written, “Anna Karenina” is Tolstoy's classic tale of love and adultery set against the backdrop of high society in Moscow and Saint Petersburg. A rich and complex masterpiece, the novel charts the disastrous course of a love affair between Anna, a beautiful married woman, and Count Vronsky, a wealthy army officer. Tolstoy seamlessly weaves together the lives of dozens of characters, and in doing so captures a breathtaking tapestry of late-nineteenth-century Russian society. As Matthew Arnold wrote in his celebrated essay on Tolstoy, “We are not to take Anna Karenina as a work of art; we are to take it as a piece of life.”
