Tumblr, Anna Karenina is NOT a love story. The lush imagery might make you think it’s a love story that must endure great hardships leaving for the heroine to take her own life….but this is not the case.
Anna (who is married) convinces her brother’s wife (who’s name I forget) to take him back after Wifey finds out he’s fucking around. Anna convinces her that love prevails and that her brother is a man who is guided by mannish impulse (because penises are brains and they cant really think all that well). Sis in law is like, “well shit, you’re right.” and takes him back. Chicks dig that romance tip.
Anna meets this lady who has a hella HAWT son who happens to be in the Army and yeah, dudes in uniforms are walking lady porn. His name is Vronsky. He is totally feeling Anna, like ‘Haaaaaaay gurl.’ style. She digs him too because her husband is this straight up stand up dude who does shit for man and country (and that is SO boring), and evidently chicks don’t dig that. Plus, Alexi (Anna’s husband) reuses the same condom (but hey, he’s recycling, so can you really hate him? (gross)).
Anyway, Anna & Vronsky hit it off despite Princess Kitty, who is definitely feeling Vronsky for her own but Kitty is a young teen, so what does she know?
Right, so Anna and Vronsky are macking it at every opportunity and all of high society notices (because back then there was no cable or Breaking Bad), and immediately shuns Anna. She might as well go around screaming as she enters parties, ‘HHAYYYYY, his dick is DIS BIG’, but she doesnt. She’s a lady to the max (except she’s having an affair and lady status is BUH BYE). Anna’s the equivalent of Russian Voldemort just for getting her fuck on and her husband (who tries to actually deal with said affair) gets fed up and doesn’t let Anna see their kid.
Anna gets knocked up and yada yada, but the point is, Anna’s affair is the equivalent to her brother’s affair (apparently this family cant keep it in their pants) and gets judged a whole lot more harshly than her bro because vaginas are only for Hubby’s duty and are dirty in other dude’s usage.
She throws herself onto the train tracks mostly because the societal exile drives her to thinking that Vronsky is macking it to other girls (he’s hawt tho, so you cant blame other bitches for trying to get a piece) and it drives her into jealous madness. Plus at this point she’s hooked on morphine (drugs: don’t do them).
Point is, it isnt a love story. She died loving that D and everyone hates her for it.
