Anna Karenina, widely regarded as the finest novel ever written, offers a comprehensive portrait of both humankind and Russian society today. In it, Tolstoy employs his keen imagination to develop some of literature’s most enduring characters. In order to satisfy her passionate nature, Anna, a smart woman, leaves her empty life as Karenin’s wife and goes to Count Vronsky, with tragic results.
