    Anna Karenina

    Is this quote from Anna Karenina correct?

    "Все разнообразие, вся прелесть, вся красота жизни слагается из тени и света."

    "All variety, all charm, all beauty of life is made up of shadow and light."


    Does "прелесть" translate to "charm?"

    Can you shorten the phrase to just “ вся красота жизни слагается из тени и света“ and it still makes sense? “The beauty of life is made up of shadow and light”?
