Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy( Book )

5 editions published between 1933 and 1951 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Story of passion and family conflict set in 19th century upper-class Russia, in which the wife of an aristocrat falls in love with a dashing cavalry officer. Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. States Leo Tolstoy in his great modern novel of an adulterous affair set against the backdrop of Moscow and St. Petersburg high society in the later half of the nineteenth century. A sophisticated woman who is respectably married to a government bureaucrat, Anna begins a passionate, all-consuming involvement with a rich army officer. Refusing to conduct a discreet affair, she scandalizes society by abandoning both her husband and her young son for Count Vronsky--with tragic consequences. Running parallel is the story of the courtship and marriage of Konstantin Levin (the melancholy nobleman who is Tolstoy's stand-in) and Princess Kitty Shcherbatsky
