A bad novel, assuming it could have even got to this point where Andrei sees Kuragin, would have enraged Andrei or played it off as some sort of retribution for the pain Kuragin caused. But not here. Here Andrei is transformed by understanding what he never realized before: that he only needed to love, love everyone.

Make of this what you will, but he had been so driven by hatred that it led to his death.
