Hekov wrote The stories are uninterrupted as a result but I njoy the heavy stuff so I felt primed for it but not satisfied with an answer Most of the stories also had a sinister undertone to them as if a ghost or some Hello, Hippo! Goodbye, Bird! evil presence is lurking in wait Strangely also I also felt as if some of the characters in the stories were connected in some way but this is not intended I don t thinkThe steppes was the longest and left the strongest impression on me Many of the descriptions of the landscape felt similar to the mood I feel in the Australian outback it s stark beauty and thevocative sense of loneliness and humility it inspires And then it Cannibal endsNot my favourite but injoyed the glimpse into the different time and place that Chekov wrote about Numerous short stories of a somewhat similar background theme of Orthodoxy life in rural Russia From there they diverge both in character types classes wealth jobs Mastered (The Enforcers, etc Each less of a story and of moment in their times and lives Well written of course but not as poignant to me as his plays He portrays the inner workings of humans as well asver but I m not as up on the in and outs of the Orthadox Church as I feel I need to be to get the best Man, Son of Man effect Some really wonderful short stories here There seems to be a theme with these as they all touch on the Russian Orthodox Church of which I m a member and the various feast days and practices that revolve around the church liturgical calendar Some of the inferences here may not be apparent to non Orthodox readers but Chekhov s prose and insight into various strata of Russia society are beautiful and thought provoking Thank you to Ken for steering me to this one Perfect timing as it takes place during the lead up to Easter Sunday Life and death time and pretense habit andchoes of memory A gorgeous Chekhov story.

A touching portrait of a dying man re valuating his life and priorities Slightly fragmented but I think that s the pointAlso all the poignant because Chekhov wrote this while dying of TB Autobiographical and lonesome I could somehow relate this story to the dying of Chekhov himself as he wrote it in his illness and final daysHe has beautiful captured the bond of the bishop with his mother How she changed her mannerisms with him now that he was a bishop Also I felt Uncommon Wisdom extremely sad that Chekhov had to die of tuberculosis a disease of which the treatment now after 100 years or so isasily available I found myself grieving for him Oh how much I would have loved to read of his stories Occasionally one reads a Chekhov story that is so perfect so wonderful that the pleasure cortex in the brain Unseen City explodes with delight releasing rainbow coloured pixies to dance in the bright spring garden of the soul I am disappointed to have to say this collection only contained two such stories for me The rest were merelyxcellent My thanks to my friend Kathleen for bringing this story to my attention Chekhov writes poignantly about death and the meaning of life itself bringing a lot to bear in just a few pages I believe this is a story as much about love intimacy and connection as about death and separation Chekhov wrote it while awaiting his own impending death Write what you know I loved these short stories they are the ideal Art example of the art form of the short story and how they should perfectly be Writers like Katherine Mansfield were hugely influenced by Checkov s work and I wonder why it s taken me so long to read his work This collection is primarily concerned with religious life and representatives of the Russian church from the rich dying bishop of the titular storywho has become so grand that his impover.

Антон Павлович Чехов 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 merchantWhen I think back on my childhood Chekhov recalled it all seems uite 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 tutoringIn 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 shy with women even after his marriage His works appeared in St Petersburg daily papers Peterburskaia gazeta from 1885 and Novoe vremia from 1886Chekhov's first novel Nenunzhaya pobeda 1882 set in Hungary parodied the novels of the popular Hungarian writer Mór Jókai As a politician Jókai 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 1926Chekhov graduated in 1884 and practiced medicine until 1892 In 1886 Chekhov met HS 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 compassionChekhov'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 uestions 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 1888The 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 10000 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
