Sin and Sorrow are Common to All


A Drama in Four Acts


By Alexander Ostrovsky


Translated by George Rapall Noyes


A central theme of Ostrovsky's plays is the inevitable


struggle between the demands of personal morality


and and those dictated by social propriety.


In this grim drama the dramatist sketches a tragic incident


arising from the conflict of two social classes, the petty


tradesmen and the nobility. From the coarse environment


of the first emerge honest, upright natures like Krasnov,


the earnest shokeeper; from the superficial, dawdling culture


of the second come weak-willed triflers like the ineffectual


landowner, Babayev. The sordid plot sweeps


on to its inexorable tragic conclusion with tremendous force.
