was born in the small seaport of Taganrog, southern Russia, the son of a grocer Chekhov s grandfather was a serf, who had bought his own freedom and that of his three sons in 1841 He also taught himself to read and write Yevgenia Morozova, Chekhov s mother, was the daughter of a cloth merchant When I think back on my childhood, Chekhov recalled, it all seems quite gloomy to me His early years were shadowed by his father s tyranny, religious fanaticism, and long nights in the store, which was open from five in the morning till midnight He attended a school for Greek boys in Taganrog 1867 68 and Taganrog grammar school 1868 79 The family was forced to move to Moscow following his father s bankruptcy At the age of 16, Chekhov became independent and remained for some time alone in his native town, supporting himself through private tutoring.In 1879 Chekhov entered the Moscow University Medical School While in the school, he began to publish hundreds of comic short stories to support himself and his mother, sisters and brothers His publisher at this period was Nicholas Leikin, owner of the St Petersburg journal Oskolki splinters His subjects were silly social situations, marital problems, farcical encounters between husbands, wives, mistresses, and lovers, whims of young women, of whom Chekhov had not much knowledge the author was was shy with women even after his marriage His works appeared in St Petersburg daily papers, Peterburskaia gazeta from 1885, and Novoe vremia from 1886.Chekhov s first novel, Nenunzhaya pobeda 1882 , set in Hungary, parodied the novels of the popular Hungarian writer M r J kai As a politician J kai was also mocked for his ideological optimism By 1886 Chekhov had gained a wide fame as a writer His second full length novel, The Shooting Party, was translated into English in 1926 Agatha Christie used its characters and atmosphere in her mystery novel The Murder of Roger Ackroyd 1926.Chekhov graduated in 1884, and practiced medicine until 1892 In 1886 Chekhov met H.S Suvorin, who invited him to become a regular contributor for the St Petersburg daily Novoe vremya His friendship with Suvorin ended in 1898 because of his objections to the anti Dreyfus campaingn conducted by paper But during these years Chechov developed his concept of the dispassionate, non judgemental author He outlined his program in a letter to his brother Aleksandr 1 Absence of lengthy verbiage of political social economic nature 2 total objectivity 3 truthful descriptions of persons and objects 4 extreme brevity 5 audacity and originality flee the stereotype 6 compassion Chekhov s first book of stories 1886 was a success, and gradually he became a full time writer The author s refusal to join the ranks of social critics arose the wrath of liberal and radical intellitentsia and he was criticized for dealing with serious social and moral questions, but avoiding giving answers However, he was defended by such leading writers as Leo Tolstoy and Nikolai Leskov I m not a liberal, or a conservative, or a gradualist, or a monk, or an indifferentist I should like to be a free artist and that s all Chekhov said in 1888.The failure of his play The Wood Demon 1889 and problems with his novel made Chekhov to withdraw from literature for a period In 1890 he travelled across Siberia to remote prison island, Sakhalin There he conducted a detailed census of some 10,000 convicts and settlers condemned to live their lives on that harsh island Chekhov hoped to use the results of his research for his doctoral dissertation It is probable that hard conditions on the island also weakened his own physical condition From this journey was born his famous travel book T

    I finally understand why Chekhov has earned the title of undisputable master of the short story He is a genius of brevity Never had I encountered such eloquent, detailed descriptions, both physical and psychological, of characters in so few lines The seven stories in this volume put their emphasis on the gentry or on the professional class, with a preeminent recurrence of doctors as protagonists, which might have a direct correlation to Chekhov s real life experiences, for he graduated in medicine before he became a self supporting writer What most struck me about Chekhov s narrative voice is the biting realism of the sketches he so dexterously portrays They are horrifying precisely because of their familiarity, which is so reminiscent of everyday life Empathizing character over plot, with a terse, almost laconic style, he evokes the complexities of the human psyche with a full palette of thematic patterns lunacy, unfaithfulness, boredom, the tediousness that ails the accommodated middle class he brings it all with an economy of language that leaves the reader rather stunned by time the plotline reaches a generally anti dramatic conclusion, something that differs from other Russian writers like Tolstoy or Dostoevsky Instead, there is a deadly...

    The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation Henry David ThoreauSo too do the mass of Chekhov s compelling, endearing, entirely relatable characters Suffering, misfortune, and loneliness relentlessly plague most of the unhappy souls you ll meet within these pages Layers of sediment seemed to be forming around his heart and after every visit he felt that the sediment was reaching ever higher, towards his throat Despite their miseries, they fervently strive to live as best they can, earnestly searching for answers and some sort of meaning, a reason for all of the unremitting toil, hardship, sorrow, and confusion Like us, they seldom hear any meaningful, intelligible response to their questions By and large, the universe appears silent and indifferent to their passionate, plaintive queries Oftentimes, all one feels is emptiness all around and the wretchedness of life slowly slipping by Rest assured, you won t find any of those inane, neat and tidy happy endings here And thank god It s actually quite refreshing to find a writer who s willing to admit that sometimes, life is just shitty, and there s really nothing you can do but endure it Not every problem has a ready solution, and maybe that s okay At any rate, these fascinating human beings, who grapple with so many fundamental, timeless, universal issues, are brought to life quickly and vividly by Chekhov s astoundingly powerful w...

    review of the title story onlyI wonder if I would give Plato s Allegory of the Cave 3 stars if I read it now I remember being profoundly impacted by that one when reading it in junior high maybe it s an age thing these days I read mainly for enjoyment not edification, and ratings are funny when it comes to that 3 stars is a fine rating by me it means I liked it well enough and may even recommend it but I d never consider re reading it maybe if I had read this one but was a different person say, if I wasn t the choir to whom this book preaches about mindless hypocrisy and the foolish cupidity of governmental systems or, to go deeper, if I was haunted by not finding a purpose in life perhaps the novella s themes would have impact this is the third classic of existential dread and the shallowness of life or certain lives that I ve read in the past year the other two were Camus The Fall and Dostoevsky s Notes from Underground I really enjoyed the former because of its stylistic flair and subtle empathy I despised the latter because of its repellent thesis that mankind is basically an insect colony Ward No 6 questions the substance of lives frozen by inaction and that complacently pay attention to form over meaning, despite knowing better there was...
