Summary "Anna Karenina seems to have everything 7F 13 beauty, wealth, popularity and an adored son. But she feels that her life is empty until the moment she encounters the impetuous officer Count Vronsky. Their subsequent affair scandalizes society and family alike and soon brings jealously and bitterness in its wake. Contrasting with this tale of love and self-destruction is the vividly observed story of Levin, a man striving to find contentment and a meaning to his life 7F 13 and also a self-portrait of Tolstoy himself. This new translation has been acclaimed as the definitive version of Tolstoy's masterpiece. It also contains an introduction by Richard Pevear and a preface by John Bayley."--Back cover
