In this tragic masterpiece portraying the inner anguish of a tormented artist who burns with unrequited love, the Russian playwright uses the death of a sea gull to symbolize the ruined hopes and dreams of his characters. Universally acclaimed as a prototype of 20th-century drama, the play pioneered a new form of impressionistic realism.
