Anna Karenina

  

by Leo Tolstoy

Anna Karenina Part 2, Chapter 23 Summary

  • Anna refuses to acknowledge the position in which she finds herself.
  • She's not thrilled with the idea of running away with Vronsky, primarily because she doesn't want her son to have a mother who left his father.
  • Anna hears Seryozha coming back.
  • Anna kisses Vronsky good-bye, tells him to come over at one in the morning, and then runs off to meet her son.
