Publisher Description

Described by William Faulkner as the best novel ever written and by Fyodor Dostoevsky as “flawless”, Anna Karenina tells of the doomed love affair between the sensuous and rebellious Anna and the dashing officer, Count Vronsky. Tragedy unfolds as Anna rejects her passionless marriage and thereby exposes herself to the hypocrisies of society. Set against a vast and richly textured canvas of nineteenth-century Russia, the novel's seven major characters create a dynamic imbalance, playing out the contrasts of city and country life and all the variations on love and family happiness.

Anna Karenina

Leo Tolstoy writes simply of details that you know, that you understand, that you sympathize with ...but I read this as a black youth in 2019, and the last part was incoherent to me, as do most classics written from positions of power and privilege. In this time and place, living for God is such a concept, being good is relative, oppression has to be fought and what is right and wrong is the only thing a person can judge from their own experiences and treatment.
