Description

The Seagull , a spectacular failure on its first appearance, was the play which, on its second, established Anton Chekhov as an important and revolutionary dramatist. Here, amid 'the weariness of life in the country', the famous actress Arkadina presides over a household riven with desperate love, with dreams of success and dread of failure. It is her son, Konstantin, who one day shoots a seagull; it is the novelist, Trigorin, who will one day write the story of the seagull so casually killled; but it is Nina, 'the seagull' herself, whose life to come will rewrite the story. As well as the complete text of the play itself, this volume contains a chronology of the playwright's life and work, an introduction giving the background to the play, discussion of the various interpretations and notes on words and phrases.
