"The characters who embody the author's ideals got the best endings, especially Levin and Kitty."

Not sure I fully understand this statement, though to the extent that Levin is sometimes regarded as an author-character, it's unexceptional there. Had been led to believe that "energy" propelling the storyline behind Anna's death had more to do with social hypocrisy, her husband's behavior (especially toward the end), exclusion, isolation, shame (and shaming), &c, but I may well want to reread for many reasons, those included.
