About the Author

Anton Chekhov was born on January 29, 1860, in Taganrog, Russia, on the Sea of Azov. Anton Pavlovich Chekhov would eventually become one of Russia's most cherished storytellers. Especially fond of vaudevilles and French farces, he produced some hilarious one-act plays, but it is his full-length tragedies that have secured him a place among the greatest dramatists of all time.

Chekhov began writing short stories during his days as a medical student at the University of Moscow. After graduating in 1884 with a degree in medicine, he began to freelance as a journalist and writer of comic sketches. Early in his career, he mastered the form of the one-act play and produced several masterpieces of this genre including The Bear (1888), The Wedding (1889) and The Lady with the Dog (1899) and many more. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I have thoroughly enjoyed every one of these short stories.

This does not bother some but for me it is a super long line length, making reading a bit of a chore.

The writing style and stories of Anton Chekhov are Art, Beauty and fun, yes fun!

I have read the short stories of Chekov intermittently over a period of 30 years and have always enjoyed his insight into human psychology and behavior. The boundaries of his Russian nationality disappear for this American reader when his characters reveal their moral strengths and weaknesses. He appeals to 'the little voice inside' all of us as he illuminates the desideratum of human nature.

This edition of Chekov I downloaded to my Kindle paperwhite as my first acquisition and foray into e-book reading. I compared
its translation with that of a print edition by a different translator. It's edifying to see how different translators may use different English words and phrases to convey the written Russian story. For example, Garnett's title translation 'The Lady with the Dog'
is translated as 'The Lady with the Pet Dog' by Yarmolinsky. Perhaps a nitpicking detail but it makes one think about language.
I wonder how Shakespeare comes across in Chinese!

I will continue to read Chekov from time to time and it will most likely by on my Kindle paperwhite. I thoroughly enjoyed both.

I hadn't read Chekhov since college, but a mention of this book in my favorite blog rekindled my interest in him and I downloaded this book. It is absolutely marvelous. If you remember reading "Uncle Vanya" and "The Cherry Orchard" - or if you never have had the pleasure, then you should take the time to reacquaint yourself with the rhythms, the portraits, the emotional and psychological insights that come from his short stories. Cannot recommend this enough!!!

I have thoroughly enjoyed every one of these short stories. I am disappointed that I found Chekhov so late in my life.

The format of the book isn't as smooth and well defined as I would like. I actually went from the lady with the dog directly into the next story without picking it up straight away. I thought it was a change in chapter, and not a complete change in story. Perhaps, this is my fault, but it is a very subtle change in typeset that separated the end of one story from the title of the next.

4 stars because of format only.

I know i'm supposed to give it 5 stars, and many of the stories were truly great (A Doctor's Visit, for one), but I guess I am too far removed from many of them in time, space and culture to truly be appreciative. The translations often have wonderful turns of phrase. I had no idea what to expect, I had of course heard of Chekhov, and knew he was a great writer, but I don't remember reading anything he wrote. I am glad I read this, it was a pleasant and worthwhile experience.

This was my first time reading Chekhov. I was very impressed with his seemingly effortless ability to draw the pictures of so many different characters.

Wonderful short stories, and a flawless Kindle edition. The Black Monk is a story that will stay with you long after you read it.
