Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy( Book )

8 editions published between 1971 and 1981 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anna Karenina is the wife of a prominant Russian government official. She leads a correct but confining upper-middle-class existence. She seems content with her life as a proper companion to her dignified, unaffectionate husband and an adoring mother to her young son, until she meets Count Vronsky, a young officer of the guards. He pursues her and she falls madly in love with him. Her husband refuses to divorce her, so she gives up everything, including her beloved son, to be with Vronsky. After a short time, Vronsky becomes bored and unhappy with their life as social outcasts. He abandons her, returns to the military and is immediately accepted back into society. Anna, a fallen woman, shunned by respectable society, throws herself under a train. A magnificent drama of vengeance, infidelity, and retribution, Anna Karenina portrays the moving story of people whose emotions conflict with the dominant social mores of their time. Sensual, rebellious Anna falls deeply and passionately in love with the handsome Count Vronsky. When she refuses to conduct the discreet affair that her cold, ambitious husband (and Russian high society) would condone, she is doomed. Set against the tragic love of Anna and Vronsky, the plight of the melancholy nobleman Konstantine Levin unfolds. In doubt about the meaning of life, haunted by thoughts of suicide, Levin's struggles echo Tolstoy's own spiritual crisis. But Anna's inner turmoil mirrors the own emotional imprisonment and mental disintegration of a woman who dares to transgress the strictures of a patriarchal world. In Anna Karenina Leo Tolstoy brought to perfection the novel of social realism and created a masterpiece that bared the Russian soul

The giant dwarfs : a contribution by Gisela Elsner( Book )

5 editions published in 1965 in English and German and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Román německé spisovatelky žijící v Londýně, poctěný cenou Formentor. "Obřími trpaslíky" míní autorka lidi zotročené vlastní existencí, svým způsobem myšlení, konvencemi, jež dodržují, i těmi, jež sami vytvářejí. Vypravěčem románu je chlapec předškolního věku, vnímavý, ale zakřiknutý a nevýbojný. Tento chlapec pozoruje život dospělých kolem sebe a podle něho vypráví jednotlivosti, které vidí a slyší, řadí je k sobě bez zaujetí vlastního stanoviska a často je uvádí do jiných souvislostí, než činí dospělí. Vypravěč, který pohlíží na věci bez brýlí společenských konvencí, poskytuje čtenáři nezvyklé a často až tragikomické pohledy na život a dění v něm
