    play The Cherry Orchard, a Russian family who is used to a life of riches begin to experience the hardships of poverty. Due to an extreme amount of carelessness and selfishness, the mother of the estate Lyubov Andreevna Ranvskaya loses the funds that have been allowing her to keep her family in a comfortable position financially.

Without all of the symbolism and imagery throughout the play, Chekhov’s message would be lost. Chekhov’s message for The Cherry Orchard was to show how brutal change can be, but also how necessary change is, in order for the world to fully develop into its primal form. Three of the most important symbols and images Chekhov uses to to create an understanding of this transition of time are the cherry orchard, the keys to the estate that Varya holds, and the ending scene where Firs is left outside of the estate to die. The cherry orchard is truly the most important and iconic symbol throughout the play. Not only is it the title of the play, but it is the symbol that is constantly referenced throughout the text, and it has an overwhelming amount of sentimental value to the aristocratic family. The estate has been with the family for decades. All the family has ever known is a life of wealth and comfortability. They have grown up watching the cherry trees blossom. Throughout the years the younger ones remember…

    It was September 26, 2014, the night of the biggest high school football game in Albany, GA between Westover and Monroe. During my biology lecture class, my friend and I contemplated driving home for the game. I had not seen my sister cheer all last semester. I decided this would be the perfect time to surprise her. High school rivalry games are always great opportunities for returning alumni to meet up with old friends and flaunt themselves, usually in the latest styles, to make an impression…

    After reading Into the Wild chapters 12 13 and 14, I had a lot of thoughts about the family background and why Chris would discard everything and get into the depths of the wilderness and start his own wild life without any hesitation. Chris’s inharmonious relationship with his parents, especially with his father, was one of the main causes that drove him away to the deserted, frigid Alaskan wild. Chris’s unquenchable anger towards his father was normal, however, unjustified. He would never be…

    Throughout my high school career the three most significant novels that I have read would be the Heart of Darkness, Into the Wild, and Harry Potter.

The Heart of Darkness, is an exploration of hypocrisy, ambiguity,…
