    One thought on “Chekhov's Plays: An Opening into Eternity”

    1. Although I do not agree with Gilman about some of his points of view, especially those that emphasize Chekhov's "pessimism", I cannot deny it is a great book which sheds light on the drama of Chekhov, and leads me to more study of the literary works of Chekhov.

    2. Oh it makes me want to go back to reading all the plays. The Uncle Vanya essay was particularly insightful. Chekhov, oh Chekhov!
