Anna Karenina


by Leo Tolstoy


Character Analysis

Veslovsky is a player who likes flirting with women. He is stout and good-looking, but seems to be artificial. He hits on Kitty outrageously while he's staying at Levin's country estate. This behavior gets him kicked out of Levin's home, which takes everybody a bit by surprise. Veslovsky then stays with and lives off of Anna and Vronsky for a time.
