Rosamund Bartlett: Anna Karenina, Tolstoy and Russia

Rosamund Bartlett: Anna Karenina, Tolstoy and Russia

Join Rosamund Bartlett for a special lecture exploring Tolstoy's Anna Karenina

One of the greatest novels ever written, Anna Karenina explores profound questions of life, death, love and marriage which far transcend their setting in 1870s imperial Russia, and continue to have relevance for us today. This discussion of Tolstoy’s masterpiece will show how how its exhilarating and intricate narrative both reflects events in the author’s own turbulent life and anticipates the upheaval of Revolution.

Rosamund Bartlett is a well-known authority on Russian literature, art and music. The author of Tolstoy: A Russian Life, she is also the translator of the new Oxford World’s Classics edition of Anna Karenina.
