Spoiler alert If you have read this book please proceed If you are never going to read this novel be honest with yourself then please proceed If you may read this novel but it may be decades in the future then please proceed Trust me you are not going to remember no matter how compelling a review I have written If you need Tolstoy talking points for your next cocktail party or soiree with those literary black wearing pseudo intellectual friends of yours then this review will come in handy If they pin you to the board like a bug over some major plot twist that will be because I have not shared any of those If this happens do not despair refer them to my review I ll take the heat for you If they don t know who I am then they are frankly not worth knowing Exchange them for other enlightened intellectual friends He soon felt that the fulfillment of his desires gave him only one grain of the mountain of happiness he had expected This fulfillment showed him the eternal error men make in imagining that their happiness depends on the realization of their desires Anna Arkadyevna married Alexei Alexandrovich Karenin a man twenty years her senior She dutifully produced a son for him and settled into a life of social events and extravagant clothes and enjoyed a freedom from financial worries Maybe this life would have continued for her if she had never met Count Alexei Kirillovich Vronsky but than likely her midlife crisis her awareness of the passage of time would have compelled her to seek something They say he s a religious moral honest intelligent man but they don t see what I ve seen They don t know how he has been stifling my life for eight years stifling everything that was alive in me but he never once even thought that I was a living woman who needed love They don t know how he insulted me at every step and remained pleased with himself Didn t I try as hard as I could to find a justification for my life Didn t I try to love him But the time has come I ve realized that I can no longer deceive myself that I am alive that I am not to blame if God has made me so that I must love and live And what now If he killed me if he killed him I could bear it all I could forgive it all but no he Her husband was enad with her but then so was everyone who met her male or female Maybe he was too contented with their life together and therefore took their relationship for granted He was two decades older so the passions of romance didn t burn with as hot a flame She wanted passion from him even if it was to murder her lover and herself Even if it was something tragic she wanted something to happen something that would make her feel something I couldn t help thinking early on that the problem wasn t with her husband certainly nothing that a new lover could fix for very long The same face was always going to greet her in the mirror The same thoughts were always going to swim their way back to the surface We can not mask the problems within ourselves by changing lovers The mask will eventually slip and all will be revealed Ugly can be very prettyIs there such a thing as being too beautiful Can being so beautiful make someone cold disdainful and unable to really feel empathy or even connected to those around them Her type of beauty is a shield that insulates her even as her insecurities swing the sword that stabs the hearts of those who despise her and those who love her She was enchanting in her simple black dress enchanting were her full arms with the bracelets on them enchanting her firm neck with its string of pearls enchanting her curly hair in disarray enchanting the graceful light movements of her small feet and hands enchanting that beautiful face in its animation but there was something terrible and cruel in her enchantment My favorite character in this epic was Konstantin Kostya Dmitrich Levin He was a well meaning wealthy landowner who unusually for the times went out and worked the land himself He got his hands dirty enough that one could actually call him a farmer He was led to believe by his friends and even the Shcherbatsky family that their youngest daughter Kitty would be an affable match for him Kitty s older sister Dolly was married to Stepan Stiva Arkadyich Oblonsky who was the brother to Anna Karenina Stiva was recently caught and forgiven for having a dalliance with a household staff but no sooner was he out of that boiling water of that affair before he was having liaisons with a ballerina This did lead me to believe that life would never be satisfying for either Stiva or his sister Anna because there was always going to be pretty butterflies to chase as the attractiveness of the one they had began to fade Before Vronsky became gobsmacked by Anna he was leisurely chasing after Kitty and leading her on just long enough for Kitty to turn Levin s marriage proposal down flat That was like catching a molotok hammer right between the eyes as a serp sickle swept Kostya off his feet Interestingly enough later in the book Levin met Anna Karenina after he has married Kitty you ll have to read the book to discover how this comes about and he was captivated by Anna It was almost enough for me start chain smoking Turkish cigarettes or biting my nails down to the uick while I waited for the outcome Substitute Anna for Jolene and you ll know what I was humming She had unconsciously done everything she could to arouse a feeling of love for her in Levin and though she knew that she had succeeded in it as far as one could with regard to an honest married man in one evening and though she liked him very much as soon as he left the room she stopped thinking about him If she was irritated with Vronsky one day maybe she would just seduce Levin for entertainment because she could I must say that I didn t think much of Vronsky at the beginning of the novel but as the plot progressed I started to sympathize with him Tolstoy was brilliant at rounding out characters so our preconceived notions or the projections of ourselves that we place upon them are forced to be modified as we discover about them Levin had his own problems He had been reading the great philosophers looking for answers He found uestions than answers in religion He abandoned every lifeboat he climbed into and swam for the next one Without knowing what I am and why I m here it is impossible for me to live And I cannot know that therefore I cannot live The problem that every reasonably intelligent person wrestles with is that no matter how successful we are no matter how wonderful a life we build or how well we take care of ourselves we are going to die It is irrefutable Cemeteries don t lie Well there is a lot of eternal lying down going on but no duplicity None of us are going to escape the reaper No one is ascending on a cloud or going to the crossroads to make a deal with the Devil We all have to come face to face with death and we can t take any of our bobbles accolades or power with us So the uestion that Levin ended up asking himself the Biggest uestion even beyond why am I here isWhy do anything Without immortality everything we attempt to do can seem futile Some would make the case that we live on in our kids and grandkids I say bugger to that I want time Well there are ways to be immortal and one of them is to write a masterpiece like Anna Karenina that will live forever By the end I am ready to throttle Anna until her pretty eyes bug out of her head and her cheeks turn a vibrant pink but at the same time she seemed to be suffering from a host of mental disorders She was so cut off from everyone and so disdainful of everyone It was impossible not to hate such pathetically ugly people The friends she had had been ostracized from her by her own actions I had to believe her loathing of people was a projection of how she felt about herself She needed some time on Carl Jung s couch but he was a wee tot when this book was published She needed to find some satisfaction in the ordinary and uit believing that a change in geography or in lovers was ever going to fix what was wrong with herself She had such a destructive personality One man tried to kill himself from her actions and another contemplated the act She was maliciously vengeful when someone didn t do something she wanted them to do and yet I couldn t uite condemn her completely Her feelings of being stifled were perfectly natural We all feel that way at points in our lives We feel trapped by the circumstances of our life Her attempt to break free in the 1870s in Russian society was bravefoolish She sacrificed everything to chase a dream The dream ate her This book is a masterpiece not just a Russian masterpiece but a true gift to the world of literature If

summary Анна Каренина

Анна Каренина review ☆ 3 Leo Tolstoy ß 3 free read Método de Tolstoi é polifónico; mas as harmonias principais desenvolvem se com uma tremenda força e amplitude As técnicas musicais e linguísticas não podem comparar se de um modo exato Mas como poderíamos elucidar de outro modo o sentimento de ue as novelas de Tolstoi surgem de um princípio interior de ordem e vitalidade enuanto as dos escritores menos importantes parecem. 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
