Chekhov depicted a number of idealists – individuals whose behavior and thought is based on ideals that for the most part prove to be impractical or unattainable in reality. These noble visionaries have a conception of things as they wish them to be. Many of Chekhov's idealists are doctors who, more often than not, suffer defeat on a personal rather than on a professional level.
