Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina

Anna and Vronsky’s daughter, Annie, remains a baby; Tolstoy never shows events from Annie’s perspective. Anna loves her son Seryozha more than her daughter: whereas she feels real passion for her son, Anna does not have the same emotional connection with her daughter and is out of touch with her needs and desires. Though Anna lavishes Annie with every material comfort, she does not give her true love.
