Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

By Leo Tolstoy

Anna Karenina tells of the doomed love affair among the sensuous and rebellious Anna and the rushing officer, count number Vronsky. Tragedy unfolds as Anna rejects her passionless marriage and needs to undergo the hypocrisies of society. Set opposed to an unlimited and richly textured canvas of nineteenth-century Russia, the novel's seven significant characters create a dynamic imbalance, enjoying out the contrasts of urban and nation existence and all of the adaptations on love and relatives happiness. whereas prior types have softened the powerful, and occasionally surprising, caliber of Tolstoy's writing, Pevear and Volokhonsky have produced a translation actual to his robust voice. This award-winning team's authoritative version additionally comprises an illuminating advent and explanatory notes. appealing, energetic, and eminently readable, this Anna Karenina could be the definitive textual content for generations to return.

Example text

I always heard there was one ran under the river but I never heard of anybody that was ever in it. There might be them Civil War relics down there. Here comes one of them now, said J-Bone. What say, Nigger. Suttree looked toward the door. A gray looking man in glasses was watching them. I caint say, he said. How you boys? What are ye drinkin? Early Times, Jim says it is. Get ye a drink, Nig. He shuffled toward the bottle, nodding to all, small eyes moving rapidly behind the glasses. He seized the whiskey and drank, his slack gullet jerking.

Twelfth house of the heavens. Ushering in the western church. St Peter patron of fishmongers. St Fiacre that of piles. Suttree placed one arm across his eyes. He said that he might have been a fisher of men in another time but these fish now seemed task enough for him. It was late evening before he woke. He did not stir, lying there on the rough army blanket watching the licking shapes of light from the river’s face lapse and flare over the ceiling. He felt the shanty tilt slightly, steps on the catwalk and a low trundling sound among the barrels.

Come back. All right. A slight wind had come up and going back across the river he braced his feet against the uprights in the stern and pulled hard. The skiff had shipped enough water through her illjoined planks to float the morning’s catch and they wandered over the cupped and paint-chipped floorboards colliding dumbly. Rag ends of caulkingstring flared from the seams and ebbed in the dirty water among bits of bait and paper and the sweeps dipped and rose and a constant sipe of riverwater sang from under the tin of one patched blade.
