Framing Anna Karenina

Author: Amy Mandelker
Publisher: Ohio State University Press
ISBN: 9780814206133

In Anna Karenina, Tolstoy uses the theme of art and visual representation to articulate an aesthetics freed from gender bias and class discrimination

Reflecting on Anna Karenina

Author: Mary Evans
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781317673040
Release Date: 2014-08-27
Genre: Literary Collections

Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina is considered by many to be one of the greatest novels ever written. This study of its morally ambiguous protagonist, Anna, discusses Tolstoy’s troubled relation to the feminine in terms of the fantasies, hopes, and fears that she represents. In Reflecting on Anna Karenina, first published in 1989, Mary Evans presents an original, feminist reading of Anna’s life and times for both students and the general audience. She argues that Anna is the embodiment of all those female characteristics that so captivated Tolstoy, and which he felt so compelled to punish in his writing. Evans indicates how author and central character are locked in a contradiction which can only be resolved in the novel by Anna’s death, but which in real life must be overcome by women’s assertion of their moral and sexual autonomy.

Anna Karenina

Author: Leo Nikoleyevich Tolstoy
Publisher: Sheba Blake Publishing
ISBN: 9781304082305
Release Date: 2015-05-18
Genre: Fiction

Considered "the greatest novel of all time," Tolstoy's Anna Karenina was published in serial form between the years 1873 and 1877. It opens with the famous line "Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." The novel is about love and adultery, and it portrays the tangled love lives of myriad characters: Oblonsky, who has cheated on his wife with the governess, is about to lose his family until sister Anna shows up to cool things out. But on the train ride she meets the dashing Count Vronsky, who is already engaged. Anna, married for ten years, falls in love with Vronsky and then... well everything blows up in her face. Mini plot descriptions, however, do little justice to the masterpiece that is Anna Karenina.

Anna Karenina in Our Time

Author: Gary Saul Morson
Publisher: Yale University Press
ISBN: 0300100701
Release Date: 2007
Genre: Literary Criticism

In this invigorating new assessment of Anna Karenina, Gary Saul Morson overturns traditional interpretations of the classic novel and shows why readers have misunderstood Tolstoy’s characters and intentions. Morson argues that Tolstoy’s ideas are far more radical than has been thought: his masterpiece challenges deeply held conceptions of romantic love, the process of social reform, modernization, and the nature of good and evil. By investigating the ethical, philosophical, and social issues with which Tolstoy grappled, Morson finds in Anna Karenina powerful connections with the concerns of today. He proposes that Tolstoy’s effort to see the world more wisely can deeply inform our own search for wisdom in the present day. The book offers brilliant analyses of Anna, Karenin, Dolly, Levin, and other characters, with a particularly subtle portrait of Anna’s extremism and self-deception. Morson probes Tolstoy’s important insights (evil is often the result of negligence; goodness derives from small, everyday deeds) and completes the volume with an irresistible, original list of One Hundred and Sixty-Three Tolstoyan Conclusions.

The Architecture of Anna Karenina

ISBN: 1588116751
Release Date: 1975
Genre: Literary Criticism

When criticized about the lack of architecture in Anna Karenina, connecting the themes of Levin and Anna Karenina, Tolstoj disagreed: “The arches of the vault are brought together in such a way that it is even impossible to notice where the keystone is.” This book explores the architecture, attempting to trace the pattern of the invisible pillars that support the 'arches' on both side of the 'vault', leading to the discovery of the 'keystone' which Tolstoj tried so hard to keep invisible.
