Anna Karenina is one of the greatest achievements in world literature. It is the story of a married woman, burdened by the shackles of an unhappy marriage, her affair with a dashing army officer, the crushing morals of Russian high society and the tragic repercussions. The novel was first published in book form in 1878. Many writers consider ‘Anna Karenina’ the greatest work of literature ever; Tolstoy himself called it his first true novel – after already having written ‘War and Peace’.
