A review of ivanov a play by anton chekhov

I thought the doctor might possibly have been in love with Anna himself, because during the entire play he seemed much more upset than he should have been as a professional medical man.

When Sara dies, they plan to marry, but the plans go awry. Of course her wealthy parents have cut her off, so no financial relief there. I had an idea of how the play might end, but I changed my mind many times right up to the moment of the final curtain.

During the opening lines I liked Ivanoff because of a statement he makes to his uncle Borkin, who is also his estate manager. There are other characters to satirize this blatantly anti-Semitic social milieu and its small talk fuelled by boredom and Vodka.

Their daughter Sasha Dana Meinrath is in love with Ivanov and Ivanov persuades himself that he indeed can love her back. Anyway, I liked Ivanoff at that point, but then the doctor comes out and is very upset about how Ivanoff's treatment of his wife Anna is killing her.

The birthday party ends darkly when Anna shows up unexpectedly just as Sasha has declared her love for Ivanov and the two are embracing. She renounced her Jewish heritage and converted to Russian Orthodox in order to marry Ivanov.

But what McArdle added was an air of little-boy-lost innocence as if in denial that he was the architect of the surrounding chaos. Fortunately, the actors delivering the lion's share of the humorous dialogue are superb. Adaptations[ edit ] The play is frequently produced in English and several translations are available.

I am glad I read it, and I hope to read more Chekhov soon. Streatfeild at the same point sits with his back to us and goes rigid with guilt as if his humiliation could go no further. She needs peace and quiet, not the emotional torment the doctor seems to feel Ivanoff is causing her. She needs peace and quiet, not the emotional torment the doctor seems to feel Ivanoff is causing her.

He hated Ivanoff with a passion and wanted to let the world know what a scoundrel he truly was. Both approaches are equally valid: There is gossip about why Ivanoff married Anna; more gossip about his debts, more gossip about his business dealings, more gossip about his relationship with young Sasha, 20 years old and very much in love with Ivanoff.
