The Cherry Orchard, Paperback / softback Book

The Cherry Orchard Paperback / softback

Part of the Arcturus Classics series


It is the turn of the 20th century and Russia is changing rapidly - the serfs have been emancipated, a new middle class is arising and the aristocracy is struggling to come to terms with their reduced role in society. Seeking to preserve a life of leisure and luxury, Madame Ranevsky must consider selling her estate, including her family's precious cherry orchard.

But when faced with these hard decisions, Ranevsky remains in denial. Charting a period of tumultuous change, Chekhov creates a cast of tangible and unforgettable characters whose destiny is both tragic and inevitable.

A touching masterpiece, The Cherry Orchard was Chekhov's final play and perhaps his best.
