“Morson is a splendid reader of texts, and his readings in Anna Karenina not only strengthen his arguments but reveal subtleties that have been ‘hidden in plain sight’ for well over a century.”—Robert Belknap, Columbia University(Robert Belknap )More“Morson is a splendid reader of texts, and his readings in Anna Karenina not only strengthen his arguments but reveal subtleties that have been ‘hidden in plain sight’ for well over a century.”—Robert Belknap, Columbia University(Robert Belknap )Gary Saul Morson, long (Robert Alter )“Highly readable and passionately argued, Morson’s book makes a bold, important argument and makes it with eloquence and lucid reasoning.”—Robin Miller, Edytha Macy Gross Professor of Humanities and Professor of Russian and Comparative Literature, Brandeis University(Robin Miller )“This remarkable book amounts to a thoroughgoing challenge to the entire tenor and purport of Anglophone academic criticism from the 1970s until now.”—Frederick Crews, Professor Emeritus of English, University of California at Berkeley(Frederick Crews )In a series of ground-breaking works that together constitute one of the most important critical projects today, Gary Saul Morson has fashioned that rarest of things: an unmistakable voice and original theoretical horizon.

Now, in Anna Karenina in Our Time, he brings together many of his central concerns in an altogether singular and demanding reading of Tolstoy’s great novel. Whether one shares all of Morson’s conclusions or not is irrelevant: what matters is the richness of the debate they open for us. We will never read Anna Karenina the same way again.—Michael André Bernstein, University of California, Berkeley(Michael Andr� Bernstein )Morson has managed to produce the seemingly impossible: a work that is highly accessible and appealing to the lay reader, while at the same time contributing significantly to scholarly discourse.—Sara Kate Heukerott(Sara Kate Heukerott )Some people say Anna Karenina is the single greatest novel ever written, which makes about as much sense to me as trying to determine the worlds greatest color.

But there is no doubt that Anna Karenina, generally considered Tolstoys best book, is definitely one ripping great read. Anna, miserable in her loveless marriage, does the barely thinkable and succumbs to her desires for the dashing Vronsky. I dont want to give away the ending, but I will say that 19th-century Russia doesnt take well to that sort of thing.Anna Karenina (Russian: Анна Каренина- Russian pronunciation: (sometimes anglicised as Anna Karenin)[1] is a novel by the Russian writer Leo Tolstoy, published in serial installments from 1873 to 1877 in the periodical The Russian Messenger.

Tolstoy clashed with its editor Mikhail Katkov over issues that arose in the final installment- therefore, the novels first complete appearance was in book form.Widely regarded as a pinnacle in realist fiction, Tolstoy considered Anna Karenina his first true novel, when he came to consider War and Peace to be more than a novel. The character of Anna was likely inspired, in part, by Maria Hartung (Russian spelling Maria Gartung, 1832–1919), the elder daughter of the Russian poet Alexander Pushkin.[citation needed] Soon after meeting her at dinner, Tolstoy began reading Pushkins prose and once had a fleeting daydream of a bare exquisite aristocratic elbow, which proved to be the first intimation of Annas character.Although Russian critics dismissed the novel on its publication as a trifling romance of high life,Fyodor Dostoevsky declared it to be flawless as a work of art.
