In your analysis of Levin, you claim that he is not self centered, however I cannot concur. In part 3 chapter 4 of the novel when Levin is in an argument with his brother and says "I think that the motive force of all our actions is, after all,personal happiness." Please tell me what you think about this because I am not finished with the book and I would sincerely like to know if this opinion of Levin's will change or if your analysis requires revision.
