Cornwall Reads Great Fiction: Anna Karenina with Roxana Robinson
Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy, translated by Pevear and Volokhonsky. Led by author Roxana Robinson. Part of “Cornwall Reads Great Fiction,” at the Cornwall Library.

Starting January 12, 4:00 – 5:30, 9 sessions. The sessions will be recorded for the Library Archives.

General instructions: No preparation for the first meeting. Thereafter, each week we will read 100 pages. The page numbers are listed below, and these will also appear on the Library Calendar. Each week I’ll read a short passage out loud, talk about it, and lead a discussion.
Weekly preparation: I’d like you to mark something in that week’s reading – a sentence, or an image, a passage, or just a word – that strikes you as interesting, or curious, or beautiful, or important, or confusing. Each week I’ll ask the class for these comments, so we’ll be able to have a discussion, not just a lecture.

January 12 – No preparation for the first session. General discussion, regarding translation, Tolstoy himself, his writing, Russian literature, and this book.
