Overview

This beautiful edition of Anna Karenina is worthy of a great literary classic. If you are tired of inferior translations, poor formatting, and typos, then this is the edition for you!

Carefully Crafted Classics strives to publish the electronic equivalent of the finest print editions. Our editions are attractively formatted and painstakingly proofread with attention to the smallest details. We aim to be the luxury line of e-publishing at a modest price.

As our first offering we have selected Anna Karenina, called by William Faulkner the best novel ever written, in the excellent translation by Louise and Aylmer Maude (1918). Almost all of the other English language e-editions of Anna Karenina use the faulty, unrevised translation by Constance Garnett (1901) (and some do not even name Garnett as the translator). The Maude translation is also used in notable print editions, including the Oxford World's Classics and Everyman's Library editions and (in somewhat revised form) the Norton Critical Edition.

This edition includes:

Leo Tolstoy: Life in Images |
Leo Tolstoy: A Short Biography |
Preface to the Maude Translation |
Selected Characters in Groups |
Selected Characters in Alphabetical Order |
Characters in Order of Appearance |
Russian Words |
The Text of Anna Karenina with active table of contents for all parts and chapters |

Worth twice the price!

A captivating classic such as Anna Karenina is worth the time you will devote to reading it. Isn't it also worth a small price to enjoy that time with a truly high quality edition? For less than half the price of a paperback or a movie ticket, you can have the very best. We know you can buy cheaper editions or even get the classics for free, but a great deal is getting more than you paid for and being happy with what you got, and we will give you that!
