The agonizing condition of suspense she had passed in Moscow, the tardiness and indecision of Alexey Alexandrovitch, her solitude--she put it all down to him.

If he had loved her he would have seen all the bitterness of her position, and would have rescued her from it.

For her being in Moscow and not in the country, he was to blame too.

He could not live buried in the country as she would have liked to do.

He must have society, and he had put her in this awful position, the bitterness of which he would not see.
