Vronsky, after his luxurious and coarse life in Petersburg, finds a "great and delicate pleasure" in the  affection of this "sweet and innocent girl," though he feels no urge to marry and sees nothing wrong  in paying attention to Kitty. The next day, waiting at the train station to meet his mother, he meets  Oblonsky, whose sister is arriving on the same train. When Stiva explains that Levin's depressed  mood last night was the result of Kitty's refusal, Vronsky feels like a conqueror and a hero. When the train arrives, his mother introduces him to her traveling companion, the charming Madame  Karenina; something peculiarly "caressing and soft" in the expression of her face catches his  attention. Countess Vronsky explains this is the first time Anna has been away from her eight year  old child and is somewhat anxious. "Yes," Anna smiles, "the countess and I have been talking all the

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
