    The relationship between Anna and Vronsky is completely different. Visiting Anna at Vronsky's estate, Dolly finds her own drab life preferable to the formal luxury and decadence of Anna's. Her mouth stiffened, the muscles of the cheek contracted on the right side of her pale, nervous face. During a brief stop, Vronsky emerges on the platform and tells her that he is in love with her and will follow her to St. Since both of them are recovering Anna decides to run away with Vronsky. When Levin finally proposed Kitt said no, because she was still waiting for a marriage proposal from Vronsky.

    At this sudden reversal of their roles Vronsky feels so humiliated he attempts suicide. One was very unpleasant, from a merchant who was buying a forest on his wife's property. When Vronsky leaves for several days of provincial elections, Anna becomes convinced that she must marry him to prevent him from leaving her. No one knew better than Stepan Arkadyevitch how to hit on the exact line between freedom, simplicity, and official stiffness necessary for the agreeable conduct of business. Then a good-humored and rather pitiful smile showed itself on his handsome face.

    All the officials sitting on the further side under the portrait of the Tsar and the eagle, delighted at any distraction, looked round at the door; but the doorkeeper standing at the door at once drove out the intruder, and closed the glass door after him. She goes to see Dolly, but Kitty is there. Since then she had refused to see her husband. Matvey was followed by the barber with all the necessaries for shaving. Kitty hints that she would accept if Levin were to propose to her again. But when he glimpses Kitty a few days later, he realizes that he still loves her.

Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina book

He made a joke or two, and talked just as much as was consistent with due decorum, and began work. She tells him that she is pregnant. However, at the end of the story, Levin arrives at the conclusion that despite his newly accepted beliefs, he is human and will go on making mistakes.

He forbids Vronsky from seeing Anna in their home. That's a good expression, 'come round,'" he thought. Although Stepan Arkadyevitch was completely in the wrong as regards his wife, and was conscious of this himself, almost everyone in the house even the nurse, Darya Alexandrovna's chief ally was on his side.

Everything as it used to be? He was the familiar friend of everyone with whom he took a glass of champagne, and he took a glass of champagne with everyone, and when in consequence he met any of his disreputable chums, as he used in joke to call many of his friends, in the presence of his subordinates, he well knew how, with his characteristic tact, to diminish the disagreeable impression made on them.

Fresh oysters have come in. The thought that if he were held in check by her tone of quiet friendliness he would end by going back again without deciding anything came into his mind, and he resolved to make a struggle against it.

What role do these three settings play and what characteristics are linked to each of them?

Anna Karenina PDF by Leo Tolstoy

Everything was made bright by her. Petersburg, and moves in the highest circles of Russian Society with the reputation of a charming woman. Chapter 6 When Oblonsky asked Levin what had brought him to town, Levin blushed, and was furious with himself for blushing, because he could not answer, "I have come to make your sister-in-law an offer," though that was precisely what he had come for.

They talk of flirtation. The volunteer movement is Vronsky's only hope; he has been a wreck since Anna's death. He read another article, too, a financial one, which alluded to Bentham and Mill, and dropped some innuendoes reflecting on the ministry. She is a beautiful, smart, intelligent woman who lets her heart win over her mind.

In her first season as a debutanteshe is expected to make an excellent match with a man of her social standing. Anna Karenina tells parallel stories of an adulterous woman trapped by the conventions and falsities of society and of a philosophical landowner much like Tolstoywho works alongside the peasants in the fields and seeks to reform their lives.

Part 4[ edit ] When Anna and Vronsky continue seeing each other, Karenin consults with a lawyer about obtaining a divorce. Tolstoy also explores and explains the economic philosophy of Georgismof which he had become a very strong advocate towards the end of his life.

Anna Karenina Summary

Who's there? Kitty comes in and asks him what he is thinking about, but he demurs to talk to her about it. In addition, all is not quite well with Anna and Vronsky. Levin resolves to forget Kitty and contemplates the possibility of marriage to a peasant woman.

Varenka and Koznyshev have a brief romance that ends when Koznyshev is too shy to propose. His didactic essays, translated into many different languages, won hearts in many countries and from all walks of life, many of whom visited him in Russia seeking advice.

After changing his clothes he went down to his brother's study, intending Anna Karenina book talk to him at once about the object of his visit, and to ask his advice; but his brother was not alone. And he had now come to Moscow with a firm determination to make an offer, and get married if he were accepted.

Realizing the hypocrisy of this new calling, Kitty returns to Russia cured of her depression and ready to accept her ultimate wifehood. Karenin, under the influence of his fanatically devout friend, Countess Lydia Ivanovna, becomes religious and uses his hypocritical faith as a crutch to overcome his humiliation and loneliness.Anna Karenina (SparkNotes Literature Guide) (SparkNotes Literature Guide Series) by Leo Tolstoy, SparkNotes and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at atlasbowling.com Anna Karenina By Leo Tolstoy Translated by Constance Garnett.

I finally read my first Tolstoy.I’ve always been afraid of picking him up because, well, the Russians are just so daunting but, since I’m trying to read some of the books from 4/5. “Anna Karenina” is a novel with a contemporary thematic in which the main theme is Anna’s adultery because of which she get rejected from society and experiences a tragic end.

Parallel to her story we follow up on the destructive love between Anna and Vronsky and the love story between Levin and Kitty based on an unselfish love. Leo Tolstoy's classic story of doomed love is one of the most admired novels in world literature.

Generations of readers have been enthralled by his magnificent heroine, the unhappily married Anna Karenina, and her tragic affair with dashing Count Vronsky.
