Today, Anton Chekhov poses the question of our identity. What does our identity consist of? Where does it come from? Is it merely an accumulation of our geography, our upbringing, our religious affiliation, our schooling or lack thereof, and our profession? Or is it something more? Is it important to even have one, and if so, why?
Today’s story is about a person whose identity is wound up in many of these things. I hope you like it. If you’re like me, you’ll want to listen to it again and see what you missed on the first go ‘round.
And now, “The Darling”, by Anton Chekhov
