Anna Karenina has one of the greatest opening lines in all of literature: “Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”
The opening clearly sets up an over-arching theme that carries throughout this Russian novel: happiness (and the lack thereof), especially around the romantic relationships of the eponymous Anna Karenina and her lover, Alexey, as well as between another couple, Kitty and Levin. This infographic is an exploration of when the key characters are in the book, how happy they are, and how their romantic relationships might be influencing that happiness.
