Ana Vikanova Professor Barbara Henry Russian 322 5 March 2012 Close Reading #8: Three Sisters As Tuzenbach approaches his inevitable death in Three Sisters , Chekhov illustrates Tuzenbach’s acceptance through time, truth, and triviality. Tuzenbach is bewildered by the trees that surround him, pays tribute to the three sisters, and even shows kindness towards his heartless wife. Tuzenbach thinks of the trees around him as “trivial” and begins to analyze the beautiful world around him. Furthermore, it is possible that the “firs, maples, and birches” that he refers to are actually representations of the three sisters. He goes on to say that they look at him “with curiosity and waiting for something,” which makes sense because the three sisters have been waiting for the dream of Moscow. Stating that life “ought to be” beautiful around them shows Tuzenbach’s respect and appreciation of the sisters, as well.
