    A Horse is a Horse, of Course of Course Stop. Reflect upon a story, poem or even a play you have recently read or seen. If one were to break down the features within each, the probability of finding a person, animal or object containing a deeper meaning in the context of the entire story is extremely likely. For example: in the story A Jury of Her Peers by Susan Glaspell, the bird found within the box towards the conclusion provides symbolism of Minnie’s life; looking at Stopping by the Woods on

Despite all the literary works written about love, love itself remains unexplained.

Chekhov’s childhood was documented in great detail when he penned the story “Three Years.” The main character Laptev could have been Anton or any one of his brothers. In the tale

    Taking a second look at my life’s strange quilt, now in retrospect I see many patches coming into a sharper focus bit by bit, taking on a deeper symbolic meaning. In a way, reminding me of an exposed, latent paper print in a tray of developer as it slowly “comes to life”, first faintly, somewhat blurry, then quickly emerging to its full range of an pre-visualized by it’s maker image with all it’s needed shades and nuances.

When Chekhov was still a student at the Taganrog gymnasium, his father was forced to close his store because of the loss of business in Taganrog largely due to the installment of a railroad through the nearby city of Rostov. (S.Baehr, 1999) Like with the loss of the Cherry Orchard and the home of Ranevsky and her family, this displacement showed
