Anna Karenina


by Leo Tolstoy

Anna Karenina Part 7, Chapter 14 Summary

  • Levin reaches the doctor's house, but the doctor is not awake. He instead goes to the pharmacy and picks up the opium. When he returns to the doctor's house, he insists on waking up the doctor.
  • The doctor takes his sweet time, which drives Levin mad. He rushes back to his house.
  • Levin has a difficult time remaining calm. The more he sees Kitty in pain, the more he prays to God.
  • In his anxiety and suffering, time flows together for Levin. He feels the same as when Nicholas was dying, except that this is a joyful occasion and not a tragic one.
