unclear and confuse the reader, but ultimately there are more reasons supporting the argument that Gurov did change and that the ambiguity lies in the ending. The story presents very few supporting details to back up Kramer's argument. Chekhov presents the ending in neutral terms, which is the reason that at the end the reader is unclear about the future of Gurov and Anna. Therefore, Gurov did change and the ending is the ambiguous element.
