The sweeping love story of two people who defy the conventions of their age to follow the dictates of their hearts.
Trapped in a stifling marriage, Anna Karenina is swept off her feet by the dashing Count Vronsky.
When the truth about their passionate liaison comes out, Anna's husband is more concerned with keeping up appearances than anything else, but at last he seeks a reluctant divorce.
Rejected by society, the two lovers flee to Italy, where Anna finds herself isolated from all except the man she loves, and who loves her.
But can they live by love alone? In this novel of astonishing scope and grandeur, Leo Tolstoy, the great master of Russian literature, charts the course of the human heart.
Translated by Aylmer & Louise Maude, with an Afterword by Ned Halley.
