This is the copy from my Bubblews post. I am trying to exist here by trials and errors. I read the book being a student at school and recently i have watched the film Anna Karenina, 2012. It refreshed rememberings about the book. This book of Leo Tolstoy stands in one row with famous world-known russian works of literature (if one can say so in English). I could hardly understand the idea of the novel being 15. The thing i could seize was that there were love webs in the book and hypocritical woman committed suicide. Now i see that "Anna Karenina" is a family novel, that shows many forms of love, philosophical questions and social processes. Now i also notice the spirit of that epoch, that is manifested with fancy-dress balls and estate way of life. It is hard to judge Anna Karenina for her love and suicide. She fell into the abyss of misery, having loved Vronsky and having betrayed her husband. Nevertheless, i felt female courage in her deeds at the same time. Some slang words come into my mind "Live fast and die young".
