I'll be reading the three sisters, possibly as a parallel text in French and German, but I need to finish one of my other books first :-)

I have not found an online version of Chekhov's Three Sisters in Italian, but I will give a try at working through an Italian language production of the play which I found on Youtube. This version has clear audio but auto-generated Italian closed captioning and the video is blurry A.H. ("as heck").

Neither book is available in Esperanto and as for Chekhov, I've had enough of him in Russian and English.
