9780140447231: Anna Karenina (Penguin Classics)

Acclaimed by many as the world's greatest novel, ANNA KARENINA (1874-76) is the story of a woman who abandons her empty existence as the wife of Petersburg government minister for a passionate relationship with a young officer, Count Vronsky. The novel also offers Tolstoy's most complete self-portrait, in the character Levin and the moral and religious crisis he suffers.

The new and brilliantly witty translation by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky is a must (Lisa Appignanesi Independent, Books of the Year)

Pevear and Volokhonsky are at once scrupulous translators and vivid stylists of English, and their superb rendering allows us, as perhaps never before, to grasp the palpability of Tolstoy's "characters, acts, situations" (James Wood New Yorker)

About the Author:

Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910), the Russian prose writer, is chiefly remembered for his novels, War and Peace and Anna Karenina. Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokonsky have translated Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita for Penguin and have produced acclaimed translations of Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky and Gogol. Their translation of The Brothers Karamazov won the 1991 PEN Book of the Month Club Translation Prize and was judged to "set a new standard in the translation of canonical works".
