Lermontov’s “mysterious saga” murmured by the icy spring relates to Chekhov’s “mysterious detail”: the appearance of the watchman. ” Moreover, Gurov’s spiritual state in the Oreanda scene is consonant with the final chord of this poem: И счастье я могу постигнуть на земле, И в небесах я вижу Бога…(Lermontov 1: 28) And I am able to comprehend happiness on earth, And in the heavens I see God… But above all, it is perhaps this combination of, on the one hand, universality, and on the other hand, the instantaneity and subjectivity of the lyrical comprehension of the world, that allows us to draw parallels between the scene in Oreanda and Lermontov’s poem.
This dynamic aspect differentiates inbetweenness from “ambiguity” and “indeterminacy,” the terms frequently applied to Chekhov’s work. See, for instance, the chapter “Stories of Ambiguity” in Karl Kramer’s The Chameleon and the Dream (155–73) and the discussion of Chekhov’s “indeterminacy principle” in Petr Dolzhenkov’s Чехов и позитивизм (21–51). In his recent comprehensive study Проблемы коммуникации у Чехова, Andrei Stepanov comes to the conclusion that Chekhov’s texts are “inherently ambivalent and paradoxical in every atom of their communicative structure, and what happens in them cannot be evaluated unequivocally” (396).
His advanced age is reflected in the age of the furniture (старинная дедовская мебель), and their inner affinity is stressed by the usage of identical grammatical forms (тучный старик-лакей; мрачные старики-кресла). Simultaneously, the image of a “big elderly woman in black” recalls the description of the house as “a big stone” thrown on the grass. ” Furthermore, the “lowered blinds” are associated with the old woman’s “frowning” eyes. ” The question arises: what is real and what is imaginary here?
