Overview

Three Years is Anton Chekhov's heartfelt attempt to create a "novel of Moscow life." In it, he paints a poignant portrait of the struggles and frustrations that go hand in hand with human relationships. Away from his native Moscow to care for his ailing sister, Laptev falls instantly in love with Yulia Sergeyevna, the daughter of the local doctor. She in turn feels nothing for him, but convinces herself it would be doing him a gross disservice to refuse his proposal. So begins the unequal marriage between the two, a marriage that will bring a bitter and desperate sorrow to them both. Yet as the years go by, and as they face and overcome tragedy together, they learn to value each other in new ways, and so restore their faith in the redemptive power of time. Most famous for The Cherry Orchard, Uncle Vanya, The Seagull, and Three Sisters, Anton Chekhov is one of Russia’s most highly regarded dramatists and short story writers.

    Extraordinarily satisfying.

    Chekhov understands the human heart like no one else. Captures joy and sorrow as if they were exotic birds, and confronts us with our own shame at keeping them caged for our scrutiny and delectation. A beautiful book.
