  1. me: this is a pleasant, fairly straightforward if loose seagull translation
    arkadina: trigorin if you leave me i will BLACKMAIL YOU ABOUT THAT BOY BACK IN THE CITY
    me: there he is.

  2. I love this play of Chekhov. Despite many regarding it as some comedy play I think it is a very tragic piece.

    The adaptation of Williams is good, maybe the best I’ve read so far but I still think it doesn’t really reach the original.

    Nina is my favourite character and I have some fav. monologues of her which I really miss in Williams edition. I find that Nina might lack some depth in the adaption but that’s only my personal opinion.

    All in all I enjoyed reading it – again.
