Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina

by Leo Tolstoy

Anna Karenina Part 4, Chapter 11 Summary

  • Kitty and Levin refrain from joining in the general conversation, although parts of it would have been interesting to them in different circumstances.
  • Levin explains to Kitty how he saw her the year before in the carriage.
  • They talk about the merits of Turovtsyn, a seemingly shallow society man whom Kitty reveals to have a self-sacrificing streak. When Dolly's kids all had scarlet fever this past summer, he was so moved that he helped her look after them. Levin determines never to think poorly of anyone ever again.
  • Levin could not be happier than he is right now, talking to Kitty.
