3. Impudence.

What does Chubukov at first suspect that Lomov has come for? Is he sincere when he later says “And I’ve always loved you, my angel, as if you were my own son”? Find reasons for your answer from the play.

At first, Chubukov assumed that Lomov had come to borrow money. He was not sincere when he told Lomov that he had always loved him and that he was like his own son. He was certain that he would not give any money to him if he would come to borrow from him. If he really meant what he had said, then he would not have thought of not giving him money. He said so only because Lomov had come with the offer to marry his daughter.

Chubukov says of Natalya: “… as if she won’t consent! She’s in love; egad, she’s like a lovesick cat…” Would you agree? Find reasons for your answer.

Chubukov thought that Lomov was a good wedding prospect for his daughter. He was waiting for this proposal. When Lomov expressed his disbelief regarding Natalya’s consent to the proposal, Chubukov instantly told him that she was in love with him. But, this was actually not true. Natalya did not seem to be in love with Lomov at any point in the play. It looked as if she was more close to her land, meadows and dogs than to Lomov. Rather, the way they kept on arguing about slight matters suggests that neither Lomov nor Natalya was in love with each other.
