imagined twist of fate
i know the question is both rhetorical and surreal but: what if anna karenina had been able to join count vronsky's regiment? these days she could! even if only to sew silk camellias onto their lapels!
anna was dealt a very sorry hand in her short fictional life. married to a brute, she sought love in the arms of a count who loved both her and his comrades. denied her son by her cruel ex, she met her lonesome end at the railroad station.
until we live in a utopian society there will be a need for the military. anna might have found a place for herself in serving her country!
