Anna, moglie insoddisfatta del noioso e rigido avvocato Karenin, si innamora del bell’ufficiale Vronskij. Rimasta incinta dell’amante, fugge con lui in Italia, ribellandosi alle convenzioni che la vorrebbero moglie fedele e asservita. Dure e inevitabili le conseguenze della sua scelta d’amore: il marito non le concede il divorzio e le impedisce di vedere il figlio nato dal loro matrimonio, mentre la società in cui è cresciuta la mette crudelmente al bando. Ad Anna, divorata da una passione senza sollievo e disperata per l’isolamento in cui viene a trovarsi, non resta alcuna via d’uscita. Una storia romantica e tragica di respiro universale, un atto d’accusa contro l’atteggiamento conformista e puritano della Pietroburgo ottocentesca, che troppo facilmente puniva e ostracizzava chiunque non si adeguasse ai propri rigidi canoni social

As a daughter of a Russian literature teacher, it seems I have always known the story of Anna Karenina: the love, the affair, the train - the whole shebang. I must have ingested the knowledge with my mother's milk, as Russians would say. ...... ...... My grandpa had an old print of a painting hanging i Leggi tutto
In the beginning, reading Anna Karenin can feel a little like visiting Paris for the first time. You’ve heard a lot about the place before you go. Much of what you see from the bus you recognize from pictures and movies and books. You can’t help but think of the great writers and artists who have be Leggi tutto
This is a book that I was actually dreading reading for quite some time. It was on a list of books that I'd been working my way through and, after seeing the size of it and the fact that 'War And Peace' was voted #1 book to avoid reading, I was reluctant to ever get started. But am I glad that I did Leggi tutto

In lieu of a proper review of my favorite book, and in addition to the remark that it would be more aptly named Konstantin Levin, I present to you the characters of Anna Karenina in a series of portraits painted by dead white men.

People are going to have to remember that this is the part of the review that is entirely of my own opinion and what I thought of the book, because what follows isn't entirely positive, but I hope it doesn't throw you off the book entirely and you still give it a chance. Now... my thoughts: I picked Leggi tutto
goodness me, russians are dramatic. and i wouldnt have it any other way. tolstoy is a master character creator. and although he is very skilled at conveying pre-revolution life and society, i have found much more enjoyment in his characters (shoutout to my boy, levin) than the plot. that being said, Leggi tutto
