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


Love and tragedy can go hand in hand when a young man falls in love with already married aristocrat, Anna. She is reluctant to leave her husband for the new love interest due to laws and rules handed down by the state, the church and her social standing. Eventually the two flee to Italy where they can finally be free to be together but a great shunning begins and Anna must overcome the new problems.
