Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina": The Downfall
[ Click here to purchase this essay ]
Set in 19th century Russia, Anna Karenina is hailed by many not only as being Tolstoy's best book but also as one of the greatest novels ever written. The story which unfolds in the book is really the classic tale of adultery and the retribution which follows. Anna Karenina finds herself trapped in an unfulfilling marriage, an unbearable situation in which her only hope of finding true happiness appears to be an adulterous affair with the dashing Count Vronsky. The choices which Anna and Vronsky make are disastrous for both. As Anna and Vronsky deal with social ostracization, we are introduced to the trials and tribulations of yet another character, Constantine Levin. He too is seeking true happiness but his ideology and consequently his life choices are the exact opposite of Anna. Levin has a happy marriage with his wife Kitty and a secure spiritual footing, facts which will serve as a deep contrast to the life of Anna Karenina.
