Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina


by Leo Tolstoy

Anna Karenina Part 5, Chapter 4 Summary

  • Even though everyone says that Kitty has gotten plainer, to Levin she had never looked so beautiful.
  • The issue with the shirt is forgiven, and the wedding goes splendidly. The couple is so distracted by their emotional happiness that they mess up a few times, but it's no big deal. They truly feel like two individuals united as one.
  • Kitty doesn't hear a word of the service, as a powerful feeling has taken control of her. This feeling is the sense of leaving behind her old life and embarking on a new one; without even knowing him that well, Levin has become the most important person in her life.
