    Sensual, rebellious Anna falls deeply and passionately in love with the handsome Count Vronsky. When she refuses to conduct the discreet affair that her cold, ambitious husband - and Russian high society - would condone, she is doomed. Set against the tragic love of Anna and Vronsky, the plight of the melancholy nobleman Konstantine Levin unfolds. In doubt about the meaning of life - a mirror of Tolstoy’s own spiritual crisis - Konstantine is haunted by thoughts of suicide.

    Das ist die Geschichte der adligen Familie Karenin, einer dekadenten, in gesellschaftlichen Normen erstarrten Sippe. Die Kälte ihres Gatten treibt die sensible Anna dem wesentlich jüngeren Grafen Wronskij in die Arme. Diese stark sexuell orientierte Beziehung endet im Fiasko. Schließlich richtet Anna sich selbst, aber auch ihren Mann und den Geliebten zugrunde. In der anderen großen Figur des Romans, dem Gutsbesitzer Lewin, hatte sich Tolstoi selbst verewigt. Nach "Krieg und Frieden" war dies der zweite große Roman seines Lebens und begründete damit seinen Weltruhm als Schriftsteller.

    Anna Karenina is one of the most loved and memorable heroines of literature. Her overwhelming charm dominates a novel of unparalleled richness and density. Tolstoy considered this book to be his first real attempt at a novel form, and it addresses the very nature of society at all levels - of destiny, death, human relationships and the irreconcilable contradictions of existence.

    Anna Karenina fu pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1877. Era già stato pubblicato a puntate dal 1875, ma non fu mai pubblicata l'ottava parte perché la rivista non tollerò le prese d posizione antinazionaliste di Tolstoj, che fu quindi costretto a pubblicare l'opera completa a sue spese.Tolstoj vedeva in questo libro, considerato un capolavoro del realismo, il suo primo vero romanzo.

The arrival of a new lector is a cause for celebration.

    Anna Karenina enjoys a privileged and aristrocratic lifestyle as the wife of influential government official Alexy Karenin. Yet their ten-year marriage is devoid of tenderness, and when Anna falls in love with the handsome Count Vronsky they embark upon a deep and passionate affair. Reflecting the social conditions of the era in which it was written, Tolstoy's masterpiece sets a doomed love story against a harsh and unforgiving backdrop.
