When she meets the dashing officer Copunt Vronsky she rejects her marriage and turns to him to fulfill her passionate nature - with devastating results. One of the world's greatest novels, Anna Karenina is both an immortal drama of personal conflict and social scandal and a vivid, richly textured panorama of nineteenth-century Russia. While previous versions have softened the robust, and sometimes shocking, quality of Tolstoy's writing, Pevear and Volokhonsky have produced a magnificent translation that is true to his powerful voice. This award-winning teams authoritative edition also includes an illuminating introduction, a list of principal characters, suggestions for further reading, and full explanatory notes."@en ;
