Anna Karenina Part 3, Chapter 2 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Agafya, Levin’s old nurse and current housekeeper, dislocates her wrist, and Koznyshev befriends the attending doctor, who tells Koznyshev about local politics. Koznyshev asks Levin to take him fishing, and though Koznyshev wants to linger all day in the fields, Levin is eager to get back home to make plans for mowing and harvesting.
Koznyshev takes a liking to country life––at least, the relaxing, gossiping parts of country life. To Koznyshev, the countryside means fishing, relaxing, and leisurely intellectual conversations; to Levin, however, it means work.
