 Social picture of the
then society in “Proposal”.

        The “Proposal” is a fine comedy by Anton Chekhov
and also a mirror of the then society in Russia in the late 1800. Grown up
girls were regarded as burden to their fathers. Fathers had urgency to marry of
their daughters. So , Chubukov readily accepted Lomov as his future
son-in-law.  People were then quite scandalous. They did not hesitate to
make scandals one another’s ancestors. Chubukov also abused Lomov, his father
and his fore fathers. Girls were then associated with the works of farm. So,
Natalya was seen to shell peas , harvest and to stalk hay.  Going to haunt
and keeping dog were then the symbol of aristocracy. Money was then the most
important factor in marriage. Lomov slso had no love for Natalya. His marriage
proposal to Natalya was just to strengthen his financial power.

        Though the drama creates a good deal of fun and laughter, but behind this veil
of fun and laughter the dramatist setirizes thethen society and Society people
who would brag for their love but actually they would give priority to money
and property than love and relationship.
