Anna Karenina : a novel in eight parts by Leo Tolstoy( Book )

11 editions published between 1971 and 2006 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anna Karenina tells of the doomed love affair between the sensuous and rebellious Anna and the dashing officer, Count Vronsky. Tragedy unfolds as Anna rejects her passionless marriage and must endure the hypocrisies of society. Set against a vast and richly textured canvas of nineteenth-century Russia, the novel's seven major characters create a dynamic imbalance, playing out the contrasts of city and country life and all the variations on love and family happiness. While previous versions have softened the robust, and sometimes shocking, quality of Tolstoy's writing, Pevear and Volokhonsky have produced a translation true to his powerful voice. This award-winning team's authoritative edition also includes an illuminating introduction and explanatory notes. Beautiful, vigorous, and eminently readable, this Anna Karenina will be the definitive text for generations to come

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

8 editions published in 1965 in English and German and held by 260 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
