The essence of femininity according to Anton Chekhov


In the present paper, the author endeavours to explain the role of a woman’s beauty and female body in the artistic code of the writer’s works. Even in Chekhov’s early literary texts, there can be found examples of the use of woman’s portrait as a component of his main characters, both men and women contribute in a peculiar way to the overall psychological portrayal of a human being. This extraordinary pictorial device employed by the author of The Bride determines, to a large extent, the specific character of his literary output.
