The article tackles the representations of old age in Chekhov’s plays on the background of some elderly characters in the short stories by the same writer. The research methods apply the approaches of literary gerontology with focus on intergenerational misalliance and ageist attitudes toward elderly dramatis personae. Also the theoretical framework studies in-depth the notion of late style developed by E.Said and the Hutcheons for close reading of Chekhov’s one-act play “Lebedinaya Pesnya” to demonstrate the importance of creative activities in late adulthood.
