Love... it skill an excessive amount of to me, way over you could understand.

At its least difficult, Anna Karenina is a love tale. it's a portrait of a pretty and clever lady whose passionate love for a good-looking officer sweeps apart all different ties - to her marriage and to the community of relationships and ethical values that bind the society round her. the affection affair of Anna and Vronsky is performed out along the constructing romance of Kitty and Levin, and within the personality of Levin, heavily according to Tolstoy himself, the hunt for happiness takes on a deeper
philosophical significance.

One of the best novels ever written, Anna Karenina combines penetrating mental perception with an encyclopedic depiction of Russian lifestyles within the 1870s. the radical takes us from excessive society St Petersburg to the threshing fields on Levin's property, with unforgettable scenes at a Moscow ballroom, the skating rink, a race path, a railway station. It creates an complicated labyrinth of connections that's profoundly gratifying, and deeply moving.
