Published 1965 by Random House. Anna Karenina was begun in 1873, seven years after the Publication of War and Peace, and appeared in installments from 1875 to 1877. It is one of Tolstoy's master pieces, written at the height of his power and reflecting almost every aspect of his method and attitudes.
Set in the period following the Emancipation of the Serfs in 1861, a time of intense social change, it is the story of a woman who refuses to be fettered by social conventions, the wife of a government bureaucrat who falls in love with a rich army officer and leaves husband and child for her lover. As Matthew Arnold wrote, "We are not to take Anna Karenina as a work of art; we are to take it as a piece of life."
A classic novel by Leo Tolstoy.
