Symbolism is an important literary element is used in play. The paper focuses on understanding the implication of the symbolism used in the play. Chekhov uses the Cherry Orchard tree as a symbol used in his work. 1: The tree is used to symbolize the situation of the Russia during those days. 2: In the past, the country was in Dark Ages where few individuals took advantage of the poor citizens. 3: Poor people had to work for the wealthy aristocrats who owned large estates, and they were mostly exploited because they had not other means to survive. 4: The tree changed and the past become a past issue.
