Part 2, Chapter 10

  • The argument (detailed in the previous chapter) marks a turning point in the life of Anna and Karenin.
  • On the surface everything seems to be the same, but their personal relations have completely changed.
  • Karenin feels utterly powerless, like he's just waiting for a disaster.
  • Anna continues to hang out with Princess Betsy and sees Vronsky everywhere.
  • Karenin falls back on talking to Anna in a half-mocking tone, which makes it impossible to say anything serious to her.
  • This chapter ends with two lines of ellipses representing the total break between what has come before in the novel and what is to come after.
