from our discussion
From our Discussion
  • The story has a moral:
  • The message seems to be directed to the weaker classes: stand up for your rights.
  • Chekhov’s voice would be to the people reading the story. Who were educated enough to read?
  • Perhaps the message of the story is directed to the rich class: you are strong because you are in a position of power with money. And you control both.
  • Chekhov creates a message indirectly, since a direct message may result in harm or personal punishment.
