Sites about The Three Sisters

by Anton Chekhov

"The Prozorov sisters (Olga, Masha, and Irina) yearn for the excitement of Moscow; their dreary provincial life is enlivened only by the arrival of the Imperial Army. The sisters' dreams of a new life are crushed when their brother marries a woman they consider ill-bred and mortgages the house; the army is withdrawn, and Irina's fiance is killed in a duel. The characters of Three Sisters are outstanding examples of Chekhovian boredom, longing, and listlessness. The playwright portrays the sisters' social aspirations with sensitivity and irony, using them as emblems of Russian middle-class pretensions and despair." (description from The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature)

Characters: Olga, Masha, Irina
