Ch13 p 318 Aleksei Aleksandrovich ponders his situation - Brian 1. Self deception pg 319 "while on the surface the coldest and most reasonable of men, he had one weakness quite opposed to the general trend of his character. Aleksey Aleksandrovich could not hear or see a child or woman crying without being moved ....... Anna had informed him of her rela- tions with Vronsky and immediately afterwards had burst into tears ..... This is what had caused that strange expression of deathlike rigidity in his face which had so impressed Anna." Karenin thinks about what Anna has told him after the races. Ch 26 p373 Sviazhky and the reactionary landowner. - Justin Levin goes to Sviazhky's place and meets the reactionary landowner where Levin learns that agricultural change cannot happen suddenly/radically...instead, it must happen bit by bit theres not really a specific quotation for this... 1. Authenticity (after talking to the landowner) 2. Work Ch 27 p379 more of the same - Irene Levin goes to Sviazhky's place and meets the reactionary landowner where Levin learns that agricultural change cannot happen suddenly/radically...instead, it must happen bit by bit theres not really a specific quotation for this... · Levin at friend’s: “ Sviazhsky looked with smiling eyes at Levin…but Levin did not think the landowner’s words absurd, he understood them better than he did Sviazhsky. A great deal more of what [he] said to show in what way Russia was ruined by the emancipation struck him indeed as very true, new to him, and quite incontestable. The landowner unmis- takably spoke his own individual though—a thing that very rarely happens—and a thought to which he had been brought not by a desire of finding some exercise for an idle brain, but a thought which had grown up out of the conditions of his life, which he had brooded over in the solitude of his village, and had considered in every aspect. 1. Authenticity vs. Inauthenticity 2. Work Ch 28 Schools - Brian pg 384 "But how are we to educate the people." "To educate people three things are needed, schools, and schools, and schools." pg 387 "Levin saw that he was not to discover the con- nection between this man's life and his thoughts ...... This dear good Sviazhsky, keeping a stock of ideas simply for social purposes, obviously having some other principles from Levin ....... his own dissatisfaction with the work he had been doing." Levin talking to Sviazh- sky in his study about the school system. pg 386 "The day before yesterday, I met a peasant woman in the evening with a little baby and asked her where she was going. She said she was going to the village sorceress: her boy had screaming fits, so she was taking him to be doctored. I asked 'why, how does the wise
woman cure screaming fits?' 'She puts the child on the hen roost and repeats some charm .... " Levin stating it as a simile for how he doesn't understand how schools ends up be- ing the solution for poverty.
