Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina

  

by Leo Tolstoy

Anna Karenina Part 6, Chapter 4 Summary

  • Varenka is excited about the prospect of a proposal, and that excitement makes her extremely attractive.
  • Koznyshev looks at her and realizes that his feelings for her are very special.
  • He goes off on his own to think about it, giving some excuse about mushroom collecting.
  • Koznyshev lights up a cigar and ponders the idea of proposing to Varenka, ultimately concluding that she embodies absolutely everything he wants in a wife.
  • He sees Varenka in the distance, bending over to pick up some mushrooms, and strides resolutely towards her.
