By Leo Tolstoy

Part 1, Chapter 3

  • Oblonsky reads his letters and his newspaper. We find out that he's a liberal, because all the people around him are liberals.
  • Then he hangs out with his kids, Grisha and Tanya (who is his favorite). He gives Tanya chocolates.
  • Oblonsky deals with some official business, and then thinks that it's unavoidable to go see his wife, who's been hiding in her bedroom.
