  • Description

    Portrayals of idyllic Russian towns that were witness to tragic events in the backdrop, stories that enchanted Russians and Westerners alike were the essence of Anton Chekhov's writing. In this collection, 100 of his best stories are brought to readers in a single book.

    Summary of the Book

    Anton Chekhov's stories bring the old Soviet to the mind, plunging readers into its environment of passive hopelessness and the fruitlessness that filled the minds of the characters he populated them with. Wholly Russian in style, the stories still speak to an international audience and discuss issues still relevant today. His stories explore the themes of love, infidelity, truth and tragedy, themes that Chekhov was never apologetic about. This collection includes the best of Chekhov, including Neighbours, Ward Number Six, The Black Monk, The Murder, Ariadne, The Man in a case, Gooseberries, About Love, Lady with the Dog and The Betrothed among many others. Chekhov was considered the master of the short story and the English translations have captured the essence of his style and prose perfectly.

    About Anton Chekhov

    Anton Chekhov was a Russian physician, theatre theorist, playwright and writer. Considered one of the finest short story writers, he worked as a doctor throughout his life and wrote because he loved to.

    Chekhov's stories and plays were translated by Constance Garnett and this shot him to fame posthumously among the English public and particularly among writers of repute such as James Joyce, Virginia Woolf and Katherine Mansfield.

    Great Storeis

    Chekov is one of the best writers ever and this is a collection of his best works. I would suggest everyone to read Chekov as he has a lot to offer in his own way.

    A note on the edition, the book is of cheap quality and I would suggest that you go for a better edition than this.

    A mandate for those interested in writing!!

    If you write or ever tried writing stories or fiction then probably you know that often starting progressing and ending the piece of writing is never easy.

    Read the stories in this book and grasp how Chekhov simple and elegantly frames his stories. You will learn a lot.

    Not the value for money I expected

    The spine came off within an hour, the print is uneven - try reading a story with a few words missing at the start of every story!

    Cheap Paperback

    The collection of short stories are excellent but the paper back quality is so bad that the book will not last after a few hours of reading.. al though the paper quality is good but binding is the worst.. I will rate 1 star only for the binding

    Mind-blowing purchase

    This book is a great deal. Its contains 100 short stories by Anton Chekov and the quality is undoubtedly well. Projapoti publishers are doing great. But the delivery was too late.
