By Leo Tolstoy

Part 2, Chapter 15

  • Levin and Oblonsky go shooting.
  • Feeling happy, Levin is finally bold enough to ask if Kitty is married.
  • Oblonsky's reply—that Kitty is not married, not thinking of getting married, and is very ill and has been sent abroad—disturbs Levin.
  • Laska (Levin's dog) spies a snipe and assumes that the two men are going to miss it.
  • Both men hit the snipe, and Laska fetches it.
