Staff Reviews


A well respected translator of Russian fiction, Schwartz was determined to give us Anna Karenina as Tolstoy wrote it: In the simple, unadorned language he preferred. I found this translation immensely powerful - bringing me to tears at times.  It is also illuminating -revealing nuances in the characters I'd never before grasped. The cogent introduction by Gary Saul Morson,  which summarizes the novel's central themes, provides a great starting point for book club discussion.

Description


Still popular today, Anna Karenina is regarded as a timeless classic, having been adapted to film numerous times since 1911. Fyodor Dostoyevsky declared it a flawless work of art. His opinion was shared by Vladimir Nabokov, who especially admired "the flawless magic of Tolstoy's style," and by William Faulkner, who described the novel as, "the best ever written." In a recent poll of 125 contemporary authors by J. Peder Zane, published in 2007 in "The Top Ten" in Time, declared that Anna Karenina is the "greatest novel ever written.
