Read & Download Анна Каренина Анна Каренина review Ì 109 Read Þ E-book, or Kindle E-pub È Leo Tolstoy ازع الديني الذي يتصدى لعداوة و بغضاء الكنيسة الأرثوذكسية اليونانية على الرغم من أن الموقف النقدي من رواية « آنا كارنينا» كان كبيراً ، و كان صداها واسعاً لدى الجمهور ، إلا أن تولستوي نفسه لم يكن راضياً عن الرواية لكنها رائعة فعلا?. Not since I read The Brothers Karamazov have I felt as directly involved in characters worlds and minds FascinatingI was hooked on Anna Karenina from the opening section when I realized that Tolstoy was brilliantly portraying characters thoughts and motivations in all of their contradictory complex truth However Tolstoy s skill is not just in characterization though he is the master of that art His prose invokes such passion There were parts of the book that took my breath because I realized that what I was reading was pure feeling when we realize that Anna is no longer pushing Vronsky away when Levin proposes to Kitty and later when Levin thinks about death The book effectively threw a shroud over me and sucked me in I almost missed my train stop a couple of timesThat being said there were some parts that were difficult to get through I felt myself slowing down in Part VI I was back in through the remainder of the book once I hit Part VII but I understand how the deep dive into politics and farming can be off putting Still in those chapters Tolstoy s characters are interacting and it s incredible to see them speak and respond to one another It s not only worth the trouble but deep down it s no trouble at all It s to be savored and sometimes we must be forced to slow down and think about the characters daily life as they navigate around in their relationshipsA word about this translation When I was in college I attempted to read the Constance Garnett translation I didn t stop because it was awful I think finals came up then the holidays then classes etc However I never really felt like the words were as powerful as they should have been Years later the only image that stuck in my mind was of Levin meeting Kitty at the ice skating rink I just never really entered the world of Anna Karenina perhaps my fault than anything However the diction and sentence construction in Pevear and Volokhonsky s translation is poetic and justifies the title masterpiece Through this translation I grew to appreciate Tolstoy not just because he told good philosophical stories but because he could do so with utmost subtletly and compactness yes I think Tolstoy is concise Each word has its placeUnderstandably many are unwilling to give themselves to this book Many expect it to do all of the work But it s an even better read because if the reader works the experience of reading this book is incredible

Read & Download Анна Каренина Анна Каренина review Ì 109 Read Þ E-book, or Kindle E-pub È Leo Tolstoy نشرت هذه الرواية في أعقاب رائعة تولستوي « الحرب و السلام » حيث رسخت مكانته كواحد من أهم كتاب القرن التاسع عشر في هذه الرواية يتناول تولستوي التحولات الجذرية التي شهدها المجتمع الروسي ، حيث تناول قضايا الأرض التي تعرف أيضاً بقضية. In the beginning reading Anna Karenin can feel a little like visiting Paris for the first time You ve heard a lot about the place before you go Much of what you see from the bus you recognize from pictures and movies and books You can t help but think of the great writers and artists who have been here before you You expect to like it You want to like it But you don t want to feel like you have to like it You worry a little that you won t But after a few days you settle in and you feel the immensity of the place opening up all around you You keep having this experience of turning a corner and finding something beautiful that you hadn t been told to expect or catching sight of something familiar from a surprising angle You start to trust the abundance of the place and your anxieties that someone else will have eaten everything up before your arrival relax Maybe that simile reveals about me than I d likeMy favorite discovery was the three or four chapters out of the book s 239 devoted to of all things scythe mowing chapters that become a celebratory meditation on physical labor When I read those chapters I felt temporarily cured of the need to have something happen and became as absorbed in the reading as the mowers are absorbed in their work Of course the book is about Anna and Vronsky and Levin and Kitty and Dolly and poor stupid Stepan Arkadyich It s about their love and courtship and friendship and pride and shame and jealousy and betrayal and forgiveness and about the instable variety of happiness and unhappiness But it s also about mowing the grass and arguing politics and hunting and working as a bureaucrat and raising children and dealing politely with tedious company To put it accurately it s about the way that the human mind or as Tolstoy sometimes says the human soul engages each of these experiences and tries to understand itself the world around it and the other souls that inhabit that world This book is not afraid to take up any part of human life because it believes that human beings are infinitely interesting and infinitely worthy of compassion And what I found stirring the book s fearlessness extends to matters of religion Tolstoy takes his characters seriously enough to acknowledge that they have spiritual lives that are as nuanced and mysterious as their intellectual lives and their romantic lives I knew to expect this dimension of the book but I could not have known how encouraging it would be to dwell in it for so longIn the end this is a book about life written by a man who is profoundly in love with life Reading it makes me want to live

WARNING This is not a strict book review but rather a meta review of what reading this book led to in my life Please avoid reading this if you re looking for an in depth analysis of Anna Karenina Thanks I should also mention that there is a big spoiler in here in case you ve remained untouched by cultural osmosis but you should read my review anyway to save yourself the troubleI grew up believing like most of us that burning books was something Nazis did though of course burning Disco records at Shea stadium was perfectly fine I believed that burning books was only a couple of steps down from burning people in ovens or that it was at least a step towards holocaustIf I heard the words burning books or book burning I saw Gestapo SS and SA marching around a mountainous bonfire of books in a menacingly lit suare It s a scary image an image of censorship of fear mongering of mind control an image of evil So I never imagined that I would become a book burner That all changed the day Anna Karenina that insufferable whiny pathetic pain in the ass finally jumped off the platform and killed herself That summer I was performing in Shakespeare in the Mountains and I knew I d have plenty of down time so it was a perfect summer to read another 1000 page novel I d read Count of Monte Cristo one summer when I was working day camps Les Miserable one summer when I was working at a residential camp and Shogun in one of my final summers of zero responsibility A summer shifting back and forth between Marc Antony in Julius Caesar and Pinch Antonio and the Nun which I played with great gusto impersonating Terry Jones in drag in Comedy of Errors or sitting at a pub in the mountains while I waited for the matinee to give way to the evening show seemed an ideal time to blaze through a big meaty classic I narrowed the field to two by Tolstoy War and Peace and Anna Karenina I chose the latter and was very uickly sorry I didI have never met such an unlikable bunch of bunsholes in my life m kayI admit itI am applying Mr Mackey s lesson You should see how much money I ve put in the vulgarity jar this past week Seriously I loathed them all and couldn t give a damn about their problems By the end of the first part I was longing for Anna to kill herself I d known the ending since I was a kid and if you didn t and I spoiled it for you sorry But how could you not know before now I wanted horrible things to happen to everyone I wanted Vronsky to die when his horse breaks its back I wanted everyone else to die of consumption like Nikolai And then I started thinking of how much fun it would be to rewrite this book with a mad Stalin cleansing the whole bunch of them and sending them to a Gulag in fact this book is the ultimate excuse for the October Revolution though I am not comparing Stalinism to Bolshevism If I d lived as a serf amongst this pack of idiots I d have supported the Bolshies without a second thoughtI found the book excruciating but I was locked in my life long need to finish ANY book I started It was a compulsion I had never been able to break and I had the time for it that summer I spent three months in the presence of powerful andor fun Shakespeare plays and contrasted those with a soul suckingly unenjoyable Tolstoy novel and then I couldn t escape because of my own head I told myself many things to get through it all I am missing the point Something s missing in translation I m in the wrong head space I shouldn t have read it while I was living and breathing Shakespeare It will get better It never did Not for me I hated every m kaying page Then near the end of the summer while I was sitting in the tent a couple of hours from the matinee I remember it was Comedy of Errors because I was there early to set up the puppet theatre I finally had the momentary joy of Anna s suicide Ecstasy She was gone And I was almost free But then I wasn t free because I still had the final part of the novel to read and I needed to get ready for the show then after the show I was heading out to claim a campsite for an overnight before coming back for an evening show of Caesar I was worried I wouldn t have time to finish that day but I read pages whenever I found a free moment and it was looking good Come twilight I was through with the shows and back at camp with Erika and my little cousin Shaina The fire was innocently crackling Erika was making hot dogs with Shaina so I retreated to the tent and pushed through the rest of the book When it was over I emerged full of anger and bile and tossed the book onto the picnic table with disgust I sat in front of the fire eating my hot dogs and drinking beer and that s when the fire stopped being innocent I knew I needed to burn this book I couldn t do it at first I had to talk myself into it and I don t think I could have done it at all if Erika hadn t supported the decision She d lived through all of my complaining though and knew how much I hated the book and I am pretty sure she hated listening to my complaints almost as much So I looked at the book and the fire I ate marshmallows and spewed my disdain I sang Beatles songs then went back to my rage and finally I just stood up and said M kay itI tossed it into the flames and watched that brick of a book slowly twist and char and begin to float into the night sky The fire around the book blazed high for a good ten minutes the first minute of which was colored by the inks of the cover then it tumbled off its prop log and into the heart of the coals disappearing forever I cheered and danced and exorcised that book from my system I felt better I was cleansed of my communion with those whiny Russians And I vowed in that moment to never again allow myself to get locked into a book I couldn t stand it s still hard but I have put a few asideSince the burning of Anna Karenina there have been a few books that have followed it into the flames Some because I loved them and wanted to give them an appropriate pyre some because I loathed them and wanted to condemn them to the fire I don t see Nazis marching around the flames any either I see a clear mountain night I taste bad wine and hot dogs I hear wind forty feet up in the tops of the trees I smell the chemical pong of toxic ink and I feel the relief of never having to see Anna Karenina on my bookshelf again Whew I feel much better now
