The first of Chekhov?s full-length dramas, Ivanov treads a fine line between broad comedy and tragic melodrama. Ivanov, the young estate owner, is too intelligent and too bored to endure his provincial life. He is a "superfluous man," attracted to a beautiful young woman who threatens his moral foundations and leads him ultimately to tragedy. This new translation beautifully captures Chekhov's dialogue for modern audiences.
