Anna Karenina Summary

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

Trapped in a stifling marriage, Anna Karenina is swept off her feet by dashing Count Vronsky.

In this novel of astonishing scope and grandeur, Leo Tolstoy, the great master of Russian literature, charts the course of the human heart.

A masterpiece of realism and illuminated by irresistible characters, Anna Karenina is among the best-loved of all novels, penetrating to the heart of the ruling class in Tsarist Russia.

This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition of Anna Karenina is translated by Aylmer & Louise Maude, and features an afterword by Ned Halley.

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

About Leo Tolstoy

Born in 1828, Count Lev (Leo) Nikolaevich Tolstoy inherited the family title aged nineteen. He left university, and after a period of the kind of dissolute aristocratic life so convincingly portrayed in his later novels, joined the army. Travels in Europe opened him to Western ideas, and he returned to his family estates to live as a benign landowner. He expressed his increasingly subversive but devout views through prolific work that culminated in the immortal novels of his middle years, War and Peace and Anna Karenina. Beloved in Russia and with a worldwide following, but feared by the Tsarist state and excommunicated by the Russian Orthodox Church, he died in 1910.
