* AuthorFilibuster: Tolstoy loves this trope. In fact, the entire final section of this book, after [[spoiler:[[ItWasHisSled Anna's]] [[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame suicide]]]], which nobody seems to remember, is nothing except an anarcho-pacifist Christian moralist lecture.

*** I've heard that it wasn't planned this way. Tolstoy had a religious crisis while writing the book and couldn't resist having Levin, his Avatar, have the same crisis.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: You can pretty much tell the author's standpoint on each character depending on how they are at the end of the story. The characters who embodies the author's ideals got the best endings, especially Levin and Kitty.

* CompletelyDifferentTitle: MGM changed the title to ''Love'' so they could run ads saying "Garbo and Gilbert in ''Love''", a nod to their RealLife romance.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The death of a railroad worker in the book's first chapters, which coincides with Anna and Vronsky's first meeting and prefigures [[spoiler: Anna's eventual suicide by train]]. Anna even [[LampshadeHanging calls this a "bad omen"]] in-text. Also, the bizarre dream shared by Vronsky and Anna, which foreshadows the same event.
