Summary, etc.: Laevsky, a dissipated romantic, is hated by the scientist von Koren, both for his lifestyle and for his having run off with another man's wife, the beautiful but vapid Nadya. As the confrontation between the two becomes increasingly heated, it leads to a duel that is as comically inadvertent as it is inevitable.
