Chekhov’s 2020 vision

Kyle Smith on the Russian doctor’s enduring diagnoses of societal ills, at The New Criterion.

"Yes, we think upon reading his four supreme works—The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters, and The Cherry Orchard—that is exactly how people are."
See works by Chekhov in Gateway to the Great Books (10 Vol., 1963) volumes 3 and 4, and Great Books of the Western World (second edition, 60 Vol., 1990) volume 59.
