Anna Karenina: Part 7, Chapter 7 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Though Levin has not been to the club in a long time, the porter knows exactly who he is and who his friends are; he joins his crowd. Oblonsky arrives late, and they all relax and joke. Levin is even friendly and warm towards Vronsky and discusses breeds of cattle with him.
Even though Levin feels out of place in the city, he does have enough of a presence and enough social capital to have a fixed social sphere: he may not know how to navigate very well, but he is placed highly enough in the Russian hierarchy to gain easy access to the club.
