Download Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy pdf.
Hailed by many as the best novel in the world, Anna Karenin offers a broad overview of contemporary life in Russia and of humanity in general. In it, Tolstoy uses his intense imaginative vision to create some of the most memorable characters in literature. Anna is a sophisticated woman, who abandons her empty existence as Karenin’s wife and turns to Count Vronsky to fulfill her passionate nature, with tragic consequences. Levin is a reflection of Tolstoy himself, who often expresses the author’s own opinions and convictions. At all times, Tolstoy does not point out any moral, he simply invites us not to judge but to look. As Rosemary Edmonds comments, “He leaves the changing patterns of the kaleidoscope to bring home the meaning of the melancholy words that follow the title,” Revenge is mine, and I will pay.
