A collector’s edition of Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel, considered by many to be the greatest novel of all time. A magisterial novel spread over eight parts and with more than a dozen major characters, it deals with themes of betrayal, faith, family, marriage, Imperial Russian society, desire, and rural vs. city life. The plot centers on an extramarital affair between Anna and dashing cavalry officer Count Alexei Kirillovich Vronsky that scandalizes the social circles of Saint Petersburg and forces the young lovers to flee to Italy in a search for happiness. After they return to Russia, their lives further unravel. This edition is based on the Constance Garnett translation originally published in 1901 and in print ever since.
