Anna Karenina Chapter Analysis Part Three, Chapter 1 Page 237 In this excerpt, there is a prevalent structure within which relates to the entirely of plot. Koznyshev "takes a break from his intellectual work by visiting Levin at his country estate" and has contrasting views with his brother on the countryside as well as peasantry. The plot develops in a linear fashion and does ever experience a loop in idea, due to the fact that it follows a straight path, ending with Koznyshev running off into the fields. The chapter's exposition is that the brothers are living in the countryside while his brother is visiting him, and the time is midday, which signifying productivity and work due to the midday. The characters, both Koznyshev and Levin, are displayed in a fashion that they are, like typical brothers, very different and cannot agree on ideas. The chapter is told from the perspective of an omniscient, or all-knowing third-person narrator, because he gives insight into the character at time, such as when it is stated "You can't imagine what a pleasure...you might send a ball rolling through it".
