Anna Karenina Part 5, Chapter 5 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
The women gossip about the ceremony; they agree that Kitty does not look well, but that Levin does not deserve her. Dolly recalls other beautiful weddings of first innocent love, including her own and Anna’s.
Though Dolly’s and Anna’s weddings were far more beautiful than Kitty’s, their marriages have turned sour: they prepared for the wedding day rather than for the long-term relationship, they focused on the surface rather than the depth.
