READ & DOWNLOAD Анна Каренина READ ☆ Анна Каренина CHARACTERS Þ MEDCA.XYZ ¸ Leo Tolstoy «Embora seja uma das maiores histórias de amor da literatura mundial Anna Karénina não é apenas um romance de aventura Verdadeiramente interessado por temas morais Tolstoi era um eterno preocupado com uestões ue são importantes para a humanidade em todas as épocas Bom há uma uestão moral em Anna Karénina embora não auela ue o leitor habitual possa crer ue seja Esta moral não é certamente o ter cometido adultério Anna pagou por isso num sentido vag. As a daughter of a Russian literature teacher it seems I have always known the story of Anna Karenina the love the affair the train the whole shebang I must have ingested the knowledge with my mother s milk as Russians would sayMy grandpa had an old print of a painting hanging in his garage A young beautiful mysterious woman sitting in a carriage in wintry Moscow and looking at the viewer through her heavy lidded eyes with a stare that combines allure and deep sadness Who s that I asked my grandpa when I was five and without missing a beat he answered Anna Karenina Actually it was A Stranger by Ivan Kramskoy 1883 but for me it has always remained the mysterious and beautiful Anna Karenina the femme fatale of Russian literature Imagine my childish glee when I saw this portrait used for the cover of this book in the edition I chose Yet Anna Karenina is a misleading title for this hefty tome as Anna s story is just the tip of an iceberg as half of the story is devoted to Konstantin Levin Tolstoy s alter ego Count Leo s Russian name was Lev Lev Levin preoccupied with Russian peasantry and its relationship to land as well as torn over faith and his lack of it Levin whose story continues for chapters after Anna meets her train But Anna gives the book its name and her plight spoke to me than the philosophical dealings of an insecure and soul searching Russian landowner and so her story comes first Sorry Leo LevinAnna s chapters tell a story of a beautiful married woman who had a passionate affair with an officer and then somehow in her uest for love began a downward spiral fueled by jealousy and guilt and societal prejudices and stifling attitudes But I m glad you will see me as I am The chief thing I shouldn t like would be for people to imagine I want to prove anything I don t want to prove anything I merely want to live to do no one harm but myself I have the right to do that haven t IOn one hand there s little new about the story of a forbidden passionate overwhelming affair resulting in societal scorn and the double standards towards a man and a woman involved in the same act Few readers will be surprised that it is Anna who gets the blame for the affair that it is Anna who is considered fallen and undesirable in the society that it is Anna who is dependent on men in whichever relationship she is in because by societal norms of that time a woman was little else but a companion to her man There is nothing new about the sad contrasts between the opportunities available to men and to women of that time and the strong sense of superiority that men feel in this patriarchial world No there is nothing else in that tragic as it may be Anything only not divorce answered Darya AlexandrovnaBut what is anythingNo it is awful She will be no one s wife she will be lostNo where Lev Tolstoy excels is the portrayal of Anna s breakdown Anna s downward spiral the unraveling of her character under the ingrained guilt crippling insecurity and the pressure the others and she herself place on her Anna a lovely energetic captivating woman full of life and beauty simply crumbles sinks into despair fueled by desperation and irrationality and misdirected passion And he tried to think of her as she was when he met her the first time at a railway station too mysterious exuisite loving seeking and giving happiness and not cruelly revengeful as he remembered her on that last momentA calm and poised lady slowly and terrifyingly descends into fickle moods and depression and almost maniacal liveliness in between tormented by her feeling of imagined abandonment and little self worth and false passions which are little else but futile attempts to fill the void the never ending emptiness This is what Tolstoy is a master at describing and this is what was grabbing my heart and sueezing the joy out of it in anticipation of inevitable tragedy to come In her eyes the whole of him with all his habits ideas desires with all his spiritual and physical temperament was one thing love for women and that love she felt ought to be entirely concentrated on her alone That love was less conseuently as she reasoned he must have transferred part of his love to other women or to another woman and she was jealous She was jealous not of any particular woman but of the decrease of his love Not having got an object for her jealousy she was on the lookout for it At the slightest hint she transferred her jealousy from one object to anotherYes it s the little evils the multitude of little faces of unhappiness that Count Tolstoy knows how to portray with such sense of reality that it s uite unsettling be it the blind jealousy of Anna or Levin be it the shameless cheating and spending of Stiva Oblonsky be it the moral stuffiness and limits of Arkady Karenin the parental neglects of both Karenins to their children the lies the little societal snipes the disappointments the failures the pervasive selfishness All of it is so unsettlingly well captured on page that you do realize Tolstoy must have believed in the famous phrase that he penned for this book s opening line Happy families are all alike every unhappy family is unhappy in its own wayTolstoy is excellent at showing that despite what we tend to believe getting what you wanted does not bring happiness Vronsky meanwhile in spite of the complete realization of what he had so long desired was not perfectly happy He soon felt that the realization of his desires gave him no than a grain of sand out of the mountain of happiness he had expected It showed him the mistake men make in picturing to themselves happiness as the realization of their desires And yet just like in real life there are no real villains no real unsympathetic characters that cause obstacles for our heroes the villains whom it feels good to hate No everyone in addition to their pathetic little ugly traits also has redeeming ualities Anna s husband despite appearing as a monster to Anna after her passionate affair still is initially willing to give her the freedom of the divorce that she needs Stiva Oblonsky repulsive in his carelessness and cheating wins us over with his gregarious and genuinely friendly personality Anna herself despite her outbursts is a devoted mother to her son at least initially Levin may appear to be monstrous in his jealousy but the next moment he is so overwhelmingly in love that it s hard not to forgive him And I love this greyness of each character so lifelike and fullAnd of course the politics so easily forgettable by readers of this book that carries the name of the heroine of a passionate forbidden affair The dreaded politics that bored me to tears when I was fifteen And yet these are the politics and the uestions that were so much on the mind of Count Tolstoy famous to his compatriots for his love and devotion to peasants that he devoted almost half of this thick tome to it discussed through the thoughts of Konstantin Levin Levin a landowner with a strong capacity for compassion self reflection and curiosity about Russian love for land as well as a striking political apathy is Tolstoy s avatar in trying to make sense of a puzzling Russian peasantry culture which failed to be understood by many of his compatriots educated on the ideas and beliefs of industrialized Europe He considered a revolution in economic conditions nonsense But he always felt the injustice of his own abundance in comparison with the poverty of the peasants and now he determined that so as to feel uite in the right though he had worked hard and lived by no means luxuriously before he would now work still harder and would allow himself even less luxuryI have to say I understood his ideas this time but I could not really feel for the efforts of the devoted and kind landowner striving to understand the soul of Russian peasants Maybe it s because I mentally kept fast forwarding mere 50 years to the Socialist Revolution of 1917 that would leave most definitely Levin and Kitty and their children dead or less likely in exile the revolution which as Tolstoy almost predicted focused on the workers and despised the loved by Count Leo peasants the revolution that despised the love for owning land and working it that Tolstoy felt was at the center of the Russian soul But it is still incredibly interesting to think about and to analyze because even a century and a half later there s still enough truth and foresight in Tolstoy s musings after all Even if I disagree with so many of his views they are still thought provoking no doubts about it If he had been asked whether he liked or didn t like the peasants Konstantin Levin would have been absolutely at a loss what to reply He liked and did not like the peasants just as he liked and did not like men in general Of course being a good hearted man he liked men rather than he disliked them and so too with the peasants But like or dislike the people as something apart he could not not only because he lived with the people and all his interests were bound up with theirs but also because he regarded himself as a part of the people did not see any special ualities or failings distinguishing himself and the people and could not contrast himself with themIt s a 35 star book for me Why Well because of Tolstoy s prose of course because of its wordiness and repetitiveness Yes Tolstoy is the undisputed king of creating page long sentences which I love by the way love that is owed in full to my literature teacher mother admiring them and making me punctuate these never ending sentences correctly for grammar exercises But he is also a master of restating the obvious repeating the same thought over and over and over again in the same sentence in the same paragraph until the reader is ready to cry for some respite This as well as Levin s at times obnoxious preachiness and the author s freuently very patriarchial views was what made this book substantially less enjoyable than it could have been By the way there is an excellent 1967 Soviet film based on this book that captures the spirit of the book uite well and if you so like has a handy function to turn on English subtitles first part is here and the second part is here I highly recommend this filmAnd even better version of this classic is the British TV adaptation 2000 with stunning Helen McCrory as perfect Anna and

READ & DOWNLOAD Анна Каренина READ ☆ Анна Каренина CHARACTERS Þ MEDCA.XYZ ¸ Leo Tolstoy O pode dizer se ue é esta a moral do final de Madame Bovary Não é isto seguramente por razões óbvias se Anna ficasse com Karenin e escondesse do mundo o seu affair não pagaria por isso primeiro com a felicidade e depois com a própria vida Anna não foi castigada pelo seu pecado podia muito bem ter se safado deste nem por violar as convenções da sociedade muito temporais como aliás são todas as convenções e sem ter nada a ver com as eternas exigênci. 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 شوهر آهو خانم 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

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 Прераждане и еволюция Книга първа 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 เมื่อคุณตาคุณยายยังเด็ก เล่ม 3 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 キングダム 3 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 エッチな★ふれあい牧場 イグッ!!喘ぎまくる発育娘2 (エロマンガ島) 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 İmparatorluğun En Uzun Yüzyılı 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 Wolfhunter River 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 رحلة المكناسي - الإكسير في فكاك الأسير - 1789 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 Статский советник 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
