About the Author
Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) was a Russian author of plays and short stories. Although Chekhov became a physician and once considered medicine his primary career, he gained fame and esteem through writing, ultimately producing a number of well-known plays, including The Seagull and Uncle Vanya, and a large body of innovative short stories that influenced the evolution of the form.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I don't really get this sort of writing. I guess the idea is to paint a scene, a certain mood surrounding a certain type of personality or situation, but the result just depresses me.Descriptions of everyday misery I find hard to bear even when the situation is resolved, as in more standard stories or novels, but when all we are given is a snapshot of some unhappiness snipped out of time, the results just upset me too much. I think no more Chekhov for me.
