Anna Karenina: Part 3, Chapter 30 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
At the end of September, Levin’s plan appears to be working, and he is eager to disseminate his ideas throughout Russia by finishing and publishing his book. Levin prepares himself to go abroad soon. He sits down to work on his book, but finds himself thinking of Kitty. Agafya tells Levin that he should be married, which frustrates Levin. A guest arrives.
Though Levin’s peasant reforms are successful on his land, proving that he practices what he preaches, in the back of his mind, all his labors are for naught if he cannot himself lead a fulfilled and fulfilling life.
