The Marriage Proposal

Chekhov's one-act plays


The young landowner Lomov comes to ask his neighbor Chubukov for his daughter's hand. Honored by the proposal, Chubukov brings in his daughter, but before Lomov gets a chance to ask his bride, they get into a bonfire over who owns an insignificant ox pasture. Tempers run so high that Lomov almost pays for it with death.
