Anna Karenina Through the Lens of Three Marriages

A Well-Read Mom presentation with Laurie Collins Quirk, Chair of the English Department of Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School, Washington D.C.

In Anna Karenina, one views the complexity of life through the lens of three marriages. Set in a society plagued by corruption yet valuing what the ideal and stability of family provides, Anna Karenina is the story of three women who seek love and meaning in their lives.  It is in this place, between the idealized vision of what a person wants and imagines will lead to happiness and the reality of what a person actually has, that the true person emerges.
