Sample text

Two plays—The Seagull and Uncle Vanya—were written in his middle thirties; the last two plays—The Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard—when he was about forty. Chekhov's development as a playwright is quite different from that of Ibsen, Strindberg, or any of the other first-rate moderns. While they pushed tempestuously forward, transforming old modes and inventing new ones, perpetually changing their approach, endlessly inventing new forms, Chekhov moved quietly, slowly, and along one straight road.

You used to be a man of definite convictions, brilliant personality. . On a slightly higher plane than the tract-ridden Mother is the friend of the family, Waffles. If Vanya is the ruin of a man of principle, Waffles is the parody of one. Listen to his account of himself (it is one of Chekhov's characteristic thumbnail autobiographies): My wife ran away from me with the man she loved the day after our wedding on the ground of my unprepossessing appearance. But I have never been false to my vows.

No, that's wrong. I am an actress. Yes, yes ... I am a seagull. No, that's wrong. . Do you remember you shot a seagull? "A man comes along by chance and sees her, and, just to amuse himself, ruins her. " ... As she leaves, the stuffed seagull is brought in and placed on the table, with Trigorin still murmuring: I don't remember. No. I don't remember. At this moment Treplef shoots himself. ("I am still adrift in a welter of images and dreams. I have been brute enough to shoot this seagull") Now in Ibsen's The Wild Duck Hedvig, when told to shoot the wild duck, shoots herself.
