The two men in this play that are radically different are Chebutykin and Andrey. These men are different because their set of mind. Chebutykin is the old doctor that has given up on life because he deems it useless and nothing matters. Andrey is the young husband who thinks too highly of himself and is too self-centered to change his ways. Both ultimately ruin themselves because they are too focused on their way of thinking

Chebutykin, the better one, so to say, has given up on life and lives for the present. Andrey, the deluded one, sees a bright future for him ahead but in truth its not there. The two are both trouble stricken because of the way they think of themselves rather than how other react to them. To sum it up, they are products of their own minds and not the world around them as they believe.
