The Seagull is Anton Chekhov's sharply-observed tragicomedy about art, love, and families. A group gathers at a country estate on a summer evening for the performance of a new play. Most of them yearn for what they do not have: Irina, the famous actress, chases her fading youth; her son, the playwright Konstantin, wants to escape his mother's orbit; her lover, the successful but mediocre writer Trigorin, bemoans the genius that eludes him; and Nina, the na´ve girlfriend of Konstantin, dreams of a glamorous life on the stage. As the play unfolds, the characters pursue their own agendas, frustrating the others' ambitions but rarely achieving their own, in a bleakly humorous look at human folly. Famous for its clever dialogue and insightful characterization, The Seagull is one of Chekhov's best-known plays, and is essential reading for anyone interested in theater or Russian literature.

From the Publisher:

Webster s paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Spanish thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of The Sea-Gull by Anton Chekhov was edited for three audiences. The first includes Spanish-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL« or TOEIC« preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Spanish speakers enrolled in English speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Spanish in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement« (AP«) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's Spanish Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Spanish or English.
