About: Anton Chekhov was a Russian playwright and short story writer, who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short fiction in history. His career as a playwright produced four classics and his short stories are held in high esteem by both writers and critics. Chekhov practiced as a medical doctor throughout most of his literary career: "medicine is my lawful wife", he once said, "and literature is my mistress." he was a literary artist with a crisp style who probed below the surface of life, laying bare the secret motives of his characters. He could take the most trivial, simple incidents from everyday material and create magical stories from them. As he liked to put it, “to the people you must offer people and not yourself.” while weaving these events with everyday characters, Chekov, in a peculiar fashion, also gives you a very real glimpse of Russian life during his time. You may as well be walking among his characters. Chekhov’s best plays and short stories lack complex plots and neat solutions. Concentrating on apparent trivialities, they create a special kind of atmosphere, sometimes termed haunting or lyrical. This collection includes some of his most memorable stories, including the Huntsman, the lady with the dog, about love, and the black monk. These stories will give you a glimpse into his greatness and a taste of his incomparable style. Embassy books proudly presents this book as part of the Embassy classics series, which comprises of some of the finest literary works of great authors.
