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.

    Bon, mais un peu trop long. Certains chapitres auraient pu être plus court.

    Tolstoy's description of Russian's daily life under the Tsars, is vivid. The characters are whole and unique as if we met them in different circumstances and gottten to know them. Yes, Tolstoy is concerned with spiritual and moral consideratios, but we could still read some more about the characters even though then novel is quite long. One needs to be a bit patient and follow the writer through his descriptions, to get to Tolstoy's message.
