Overview

*Illustrated
*Includes Table of Contents

Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) may have suffered an untimely death, but he squeezed the most out of his 44 years of life. Chekhov was a Russian physician, dramatist and author who is considered to be one of the greatest writers in history, particularly in the genre of short stories.

Chekhov’s major innovation near the end of the 19th century was in what became known as “stream-of-consciousness” writing, in which he eschewed common traditional story structure and simply wrote as though he was thinking aloud. Renowned writers like James Joyce and William Faulkner would eventually run with this theme, producing classics in the same vein. Chekhov was one of Russia’s most famous and popular writers in his time, producing well-received works like The Lady with the Dog and The Bishop.

This edition of Chekhov’s Three Years is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with over a dozen pictures of Chekhov.

Chekhov understands the human heart like no one else. Captures joy and sorrow as if they were exotic birds, and confronts us with our own shame at keeping them caged for our scrutiny and delectation. A beautiful book.
