Anna Karenina Part 3, Chapter 22 Summary
- Vronsky uses Yashvin's hired carriage so that he's not recognized as he heads over to his date with Anna.
- He's quite cheerful and happy to be meeting the woman he loves.
- When he gets to the gardens, he recognizes Anna immediately although she is veiled.
- Anna tells him that her husband now knows everything.
- Vronsky becomes stern and proud because he believes Karenin will challenge him to a duel. Anna misinterprets his expression, believing instead that he feels offended for some reason.
- They don't understand each other. Anna feels betrayed and thinks that her situation must continue as before, and Vronsky feels that there's no way Anna can continue being Karenin's wife.
- Anna then brings up the question of Seryozha.
- Both of them feel miserable and helpless, particularly Vronsky, who feels like everything is his fault.
