Anna Karenina Part 7, Chapter 6 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Levin calls on Kitty’s friend for as brief a time as possible and then goes to meet Natalie at the public meeting. He is starting to fade from exhaustion, however, and makes a blunder in conversation that vexes him for the rest of the time. After the meeting, and after dropping by to check on Kitty, Levin goes to the club.
Whereas Oblonsky gains strength and stamina through the small interactions of urban life, and while Kitty can navigate these social complications calmly, each exchange is a draining burden for Levin, who always feels completely out of his depth in the city.
