Tolstoy biographer Rosamund Bartlett introduces her new translation of one of the world’s great classic novels Anna Karenina.  Bartlett has won praise for her biography of Tolstoy and for her translations of Chekov. Her translation of Anna Karenina is based on the best Russian text and retains precision of meaning and emotional accuracy. Bartlett’s translation and introduction is informed by meticulous research into the Russian language and specialist terminology and by a deep knowledge of Tolstoy’s life.

Bartlett is former reader and head of Russian at the University of Durham and is founding director of the Anton Chekov Foundation, set up to preserve Chekov’s house in Yalta. Her life of Tolstoy was shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize and she has published the first unexpurgated edition of Chekov’s letters for Penguin classics. She was awarded the Chekhov 150th Anniversary Medal in 2010 by the Russian government.
