Editorial Reviews

“The truth is we are not to take Anna Karenina as a work of art: we are to take it as a piece of life.” - Matthew Arnold

“Anna Karenina is a perfect work of art. This novel contains a humane message that has not yet been heeded in Europe and that is much needed by the people of the western world.” - Fyodor Dostoevsky

“Tolstoy’s greatness lies in not turning the story into sentimental tragedy . . . His world is huge and vast, filled with complex family lives and great social events. His characters are well-rounded presences. They have complete passions: a desire for love, but also an inner moral depth.” - Malcolm Bradbury
