Plot synopsis
The plot of the “Kiss” is simple, as in Chekov’s works. The artillery brigade has decided to stay overnight in a small village. The local landlord, retired major general von Rabbek has invited officers for tea. In the course of the solemn tea party (other landlords together with their wives and daughters have also come to Rabbek’s place), Ryabovich, who has got lost in the darkness, is kissed by a woman that he does not know. The lietenant thought that it was the Beautiful Lady. Were it someone else, but for Ryabovich, someone less romantic and more sober, he would think it to be a funny occurrence and he would tell his friends about it, having added a cynical shade to the encounter in the darkness. To put it in a nutshell, he would behave like a real winner, but for Ryabovich, the strange occurrence at Rabbek’s, which actually became a mere recollection, has turned into an event that exposed the hopeless pettiness of daily life, lack of caress, love and happiness.
