The study of Pushkin's allusions in the works of Anton Chekhov has been carried out for several decades. The relevance and novelty of this topic is associated with new observations and searches for intertextual connections, the expansion of the context of analysis, including in connection with the appeal to the dramatic works of the writer. This work considers the allusions from the works of A. Pushkin "The Queen of Spades", "Boris Godunov" and others, their role in the artistic whole of the comedy of A. P. Chekhov "The Cherry Orchard". The effectiveness of the approach which was outlined in the studies of R.G. Nazirov in the 1990s, as well as S.A. Kibalnik, M.V. Litovchenko and other domestic scientists is confirmed. Literary allusions resonate in Chekhov's artistic world, cumulatively marking a transitional stage of cultural and historical life and its personal comprehension. The intertextuality of Chekhov's works allows us to create an integral image of Russian culture: the semantic relations of allusions and reminiscences are combined with the multilayered symbolism of sound, hearing, gesture, touch - in general, the experience of time and the multiple meanings of words. The semantic "expansion" of Chekhov's play text leads not only to comparisons with Russian classics, but also to an open finale - a future literary context, implementing the "principle of plot uncertainty" and removing the uniqueness/truthfulness of any interpretation.
