A Systems Approach to Literature: Mythopoetics of Chekhov's Four Major Plays
The analysis of the mythopoetics of a literary work involves the search for mythological archetypes, parallels, paradigms, and motives in a literary text. In a new attempt at an integrated vision of literary works, Zubarev presents a comprehensive approach on the basis of mythopoetics. Her theory is verified through a close examination of four of Chekhov's major plays: "The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters," and "The Cherry Orchard." Zubarev presents a compelling approach to literary analysis, and explores the enigmatic roots of Chekhov's universal significance. Her mythopoetic study sheds light on why Chekhov's plays are moving in any language and in any time.
