Description

‘One of the greatest love stories in world literature’ Vladimir Nabokov

Anna is a beautiful, intelligent woman whose passionate affair with the dashing Count Vronsky leads her to ruin. But her story is also about a search for meaning, and by twinning it with that of Levin, an awkward idealist whose happy marriage and domestic trials form the backdrop for a similar quest, Tolstoy creates a rich and complex masterpiece that has captured the imagination of readers for decades.

‘I’ve read and re-read this novel and every time I find another layer in the story’ Philippa Gregory

TRANSLATED BY LOUISE AND AYLMER MAUDE
