A Work of Art
A Work of Art4,5 2 5 Scritto da: Anton Chekhov Letto da: Cathy Dobson
His ability to create an atmosphere and build to a climax is unparalleled. He takes a moment in the protagonists' lives and reveals their souls in a handful of phrases. Mediocrity, pettiness, emptiness and meaninglessness are core themes as he strips bare the rot at the core of social structures.
A Work of Art, which lampoons a set of characters bound by social morals, also reveals Chekhov as a wry humorist. A doctor is presented with a fabulous - but unsuitably erotic - work of art.
He is unable to refuse it and decides to give it away as a gift...to a friend who also finds it embarrassingly inappropriate and in turn struggles to pass it on.
