Anton Chekhov's "The Butterfly" and "About Love"

Hammond, Tamara

In comparison with classical music, classical literature’s authors are compatible with composers: according Robert Paine, reading Chekhov is like listening to Mozart, while Dostoevsky is the equivalent of Beethoven. In my view, translating is performing the same music on an alternative instrument. The art of translation allows the audience to enjoy the chosen composer through various instruments, or languages.
