Anna Karenina Part 8, Chapter 14 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Levin declares that he will never argue with anyone again and almost immediately snaps at the coachman. When he returns to the house, he sees Koznyshev, Katavasov, and Dolly; Kitty has taken Mitya, the baby, to the forest because of the heat in the house, despite the fact that Levin doesn’t like it when she does this. Levin takes Koznyshev, Katavasov, Dolly, the old Prince (Kitty’s father), and the children to the apiary. While watching the bees, he realizes that even though the cares of his life had been nagging him, his spiritual strength is intact.
Levin might have had a supreme spiritual revelation, but by no means does this make him divine; on the contrary, he still experiences all his very real and very flawed human emotions of irritation and impatience. The difference, however, is that even though he is always going to be human and therefore impacted by daily concerns, his inner strength—founded on trust and faith, in god and his family—will be able to sustain him through anything that happens.
