Things get intense in the second third of Part Four, with a near-death, a fumbled suicide attempt, and a baby who isn’t thriving. But it could be worse. Everyone survives, at least for now.
16. Levin shows Kitty his diary
We can’t have secrets.
Sex? God? My soul isn’t pure.
Will you still love me?
17. Anna nearly dies after giving birth, so Alexey goes to her
Easy to forgive
Someone who’s about to die.
Find your peace, Anna.
18. Vronsky’s humiliated, so he shoots himself in the chest, but only wounds his shoulder.
Thought my day couldn’t get worse
#notcool #ohwell #fails
19. Anna survives, and that makes things messy for Alexey
Glad I forgave
But now what? Anna’s not changed
And there’s the baby.
20. Anna’s mad that she can’t nurse her baby, and she takes it out on Alexey
I begged to nurse her
Do go away, Alexey
Why didn’t I die?
