Haslam, Sara (2005). Anton Chekhov: The Cherry Orchard. In: Brown, Richard and Gupta, Suman eds. Aestheticism and Modernism: Debating Twentieth-Century Literature 1900-1960. Abingdon, Oxfordshire: Routledge, pp. 19–67.



This introductory study of Chekhov's great play examines it in the context of exploring the purpose of literature. Chekhov's work is prized for its openness to a variety of interpretations, and the essay pays particular attention to the ways in which The Cherry Orchard has been performed. Close attention is paid, too, to the relationship between literature and context.
