The Short Stories of Anton Chekhov, Anton Chekhov 2009 .
This is an excellent group of short stories, Chekhov s favorite form of writing I love his stories almost without exception He is easier to read than most of the other Classic Russian writers I have read He was a Medical Doctor by trade, of which he was proud Hemingway called him an amateur writer which sounds like something he would say My favorite story in this collection is The Black Monk.
The Short Stories of Anton ChekhovOf course, any fan writer enthusiast of the short story should read this book I would recommend reading this in conjunction with either Stephen King s Graveyard Shift or Edgar Allan Poe s collected works That probably sounds like a strange recommendation but Anton Chekhov was a very caring writer that, as a medical doctor, obviously had access to both the upper and lower rungs of society His emphasis is on the broad sweep of society and on emotion Both King and [...]
I am going to order you to do something new, if you haven t done it already Get a collection of the short stories of Chekhov and read every one Then read Youth by Joseph Conrad I m not suggesting that you do these things I am ordering you to do them Kurt Vonnegut s life advice to his children
What a sweet man Chekhov was an unexpected surprise I think I had only seen The Cherry Orchard at college to this point and had expected his stories to be ponderous like Tolstoy or Dostoevsky They weren t They were heartwarming One of them even made me tear up and I was alone at the time.I am suspicious that the ISBNs for this Modern Library edition are incorrect as they do not appear in the Library of Congress database.
My favorites Gooseberries and Lady with a DogWithout sounding too pseudo intellectual, I now love Chekov I used to avoid him like I would avoid men with goatees in coffee bars, because frankly they would either quote from Baudelaire Fleurs de Mal or Chekov or worse yet have a dog eared copy of Chekov in their hands while sipping a latte in a coffee bar.We did a staged version of Lady with a LapDog at the ART a couple of years ago and Three Sisters last year Now I understand his importance in the [...]
This one recalls beery evenings when I still shuddered from the emotional impact of such simple stories I suppose most folks at the time the early 1990s were swayed by Carver or Bukowski I worked ALL the ime but recall buying this new at hawley Cooke and then being floored The Grasshopper is the one which lingers, assuming a parallel position with Joyce s Araby and tales from Sherwood Anderson as the haunting foundation of a life spent between pages.
Quite liked this little collection Makes me want go read some of his works No story was bad per se, but there were only like two or three that stood out as beyond average I do really appreciate his writing style with particular reference to his ability to clearly illustrate his characters They were the soul of each story.
Easygoing stories Epic style The stories are transmuting all the way to the point of catharsis I loved the fact that every story had a point, a message, or critics against the wrongs in society and in humanity Truly healing and magical.
Chekhov s stories teach you to let go when you write You can go in and out of reality just like the ordinary mind does Chekhov reminds one of the works of Chagall.
People who lead a solitary existence always have something in their hearts which they are eager to talk about from the short story, About Love, Chekhov.
This collection contains only thirteen of the hundreds of stories written by Chekhov It does not contain the longer stories like The Steppe of Ward No 6, but it does include a judicious selection by the translator Elisaveta Fen.Chekhov s stories portray individuals and their relations with each other in specific situations These often demonstrate the results of difficult choices with sometimes devastating results I particularly enjoyed stories like Enemies , Teacher of Literature , and The Cross [...]
Anton Pavlovici Cehov aka Chekhov, political commentary That Chekhov is one of the greatest writers it is not for humble me to confirm, emphasize I am glad that I started reading him from a tender age For some reason, I remember reading Chekov stories in the mountains, in Predeal I was in a room near the Orizont hotel, waiting for something and someone to appear In the meantime I was reading Chekhov, that s about all I can recall.It is a strange thing, happening to me once in a while another tim [...]
I won t attempt to review the writing itself, Anton Chekhov is someone anyone interested in good literature should experience for themselves he s one of my all time favorite writers To be honest, I suggest if you really want to read Chekhov, don t look at too many, if any at all, reviews of his work or at least don t take them to heart , many people have conflicting critical views of himself and his writing, the best way to get to know Chekhov is in a personal way, by delving into his work witho [...]
I dont know if this review can warrant justice to the magnificence and brilliance of Anton Chekhov All you need to do is read one story That s all And you ll be finding any time possible to read each and every other remaining story Each of the Russian greats have their talents of analyzing the human psych For Chekhov, his is the ability to develop characters You see it in every one of his work And this talent enables him to delve deep into the souls of these characters, yet still maintaining fid [...]
Gave up part way through first story I read, The Lady With the Dog People having an affair, being stupid, didn t care about them Not a good intro to Chekov I like the Chekov on Star Trek better at this point.
Chekhov s short stories are just as good as his full length plays, as far as I m concerned.
Wow, what a great experience
I m not a short story person, but I really like Chekhov s tone and style Read excerpts for school junior year college
Brilliant The The Lady with the Dog was exceptional
About 2 3 through this book of Chekhov short stories Chekhov is interesting Many stories are vignettes of life without plots Many seem to stop where other stories would begin.
Love The Lady with the Dog and Misery.
I dove into this one based on a recommendation from a good friend plus Chekov s reputation for mastering the short story form So, here are my superficial observations 1 in mere word count, a number of stories stretch the short story form in my view 2 an unworldly American like myself had a really tough time reading all of the characters Russian names The convention if repeatedly referring to characters by their lengthy first and last names chopped up the flow of the narrative in my experience I [...]
I find a lot of the time the critical portions of Norton Criticals to have quite a bit of chaff stuffed with the wheat, but this one is great the letters are interesting, there s a good balance of close readings and broader criticism, and there isn t an excessive amount of it.As for Chekhov himself, I m in a tight place where I can recognize his talent but he s not quite for me.
A good selection of Chekhov s short stories, in a readable if rather plain translation I may need to reread some of his work though as I wasn t as impressed as the adoration of the critics suggests I should be Not sure I would recommend.
I didn t read all of the short stories in this edition for school, but I found Chekov s style refreshing and still applicable to modern readers I m not sure if I agreed with the analysis people gave in the back of the book, but Chekov s stories were certainly engaging.
