9. 1877What is difficult about writing how an officer fell in love with a lady? There's nothing difficult about it and, what's more, nothing good. It is bad and useless! 10. 27-28 July 1877 I myself, of course, am on the side of the priest and not at all on Levin's. But I re-worked this episode four times and it still seemed to me that it was noticeable on whose side I was. And I had noticed that every thing, every story made an impression only when one could not make out with whom the author's sympathies lay.

Draft for Confession, in which Tolstoi outlines his religious quest. 26. 1? May 1881 Concerning Karenina. I assure you that for me that abomination does not exist and that I am only annoyed that there are people who want this for some reason. V. Stasov.

Anna's sense of isolation, especially from female friends, was also a constant, symbolized by the fact that, when Dolly first came across her out riding, she was accompanied only by Vronskii and a groom. Various expedients are tried out for her to explore new interests: at first she kept an aquarium and started a girls' school in which she herself taught (in Part VII of the final novel she retrospectively explains why she had been unable to take to rural schoolwork); later her reading of "fashionable serious books" by de Tocqueville, Carlyle, Lewes and Taine is spelled out.
