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"What I confidently named the greatest social novel of world literature is in fact a novel against society." - Thomas Mann"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"It's so fantastic that it can be read over and over again . . . I don't know any other writer who is so adept at peopling their pages." - Maggie O'Farrell"Tolstoy is the greatest Russian writer of prose fiction." - Vladimir Nabokov"The new translation into accurate and readable English by Kyril Zinovieff and Jenny Hughes surpasses even the most recent version by Richard Pevear and Melissa Volokhonsky . . . [it] makes the word order sound as natural in English as was the original in Tolstoy's Russian." - The Times Literary Supplement"Kyril Zinovieff has produced a fine, intelligent, sensitive translation that brings the Russian text alive in a way that immediately enriches a reader's awareness of its intentions and nuances." - East West Review 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.
