For Anna Karenina fans, some fun (or deep) links to check out from tweets you may have missed:
@newyorker analysis of Anna Karenina. Love story? Not in the “you complete me” sense. Is that why AK is revered?
I was way off with this tweet. I have re-read this article several times as I think it provides the most insight into Tolstoy’s intentions.
Francine Prose on #annakarenina: “…I inevitably feel as if I’m getting a sort of pep talk from Tolstoy…”
Definitely showing my tweeting naivete with this one. Why didn’t I just say this is a cool article from @guardian where 5 authors talk about how Anna Karenina is a masterpiece? Duh …
Why is French spoken so widely in #annakarenina? Some insight from @MaVieFrancaise.
It was nice to get some followers from @MaVieFrancaise and no longer be alone on my Twitter island with the bots and pay tweet “friends”.
#annakarenina and the “woman question”. No education, legal rights. As long we can dress like #keiraknightley, right?
Okay, I’ll admit I want to dress like Keira Knightley too (sigh).
@globebooks @LeahMcLaren on adultery in fiction. Do we all secretly love a doomed relationship?
Um, yeah, cuz we ain’t all like Brangelina.
@Ernielow has a fun comparison of the worst #annakarenina book covers. My fave is the train tracks. Ouch!
Still love that cover!
May contain spoilers! Book vs. movie: Excerpt + clip of snowy train station scene
I’ve run out of cute things to say because it’s 2:23 am.
Marriage advice from Tolstoy? via @LoriLowe
Thought about my husband.
Mr. Gwyneth Paltrow reading #AnnaKarenina? Swoon! @justjared
Coldplay. Emma … I mean, Gwyneth Paltrow. Nuff said.
If you checked out any of these links, let me know what you think. Thanks!
