201 Stories by Anton Chekhov

chekhov3.jpgAmong Russia’s greatest writers, Anton Chekhov revolutionized Russian drama and short-story writing. In this collection, you’ll find 201 translated stories presented in the order of their publication. If you’re new to Chekhov, it’s recommended by the web site that you begin (and I’m quoting verbatim) “with a few humorous stories, such as Oh! the Public!, The Orator, and A Transgression. Next try one of Chekhov’s most moving stories, Misery. Among the longer stories, I suggest beginning with Ward No. 6, The Duel, and The Steppe, which contains the most famous thunderstorm in literature. Finally, be sure to read the famous trilogy made of The Man in a Case, Gooseberries, and About Love.” (Source: Metafilter)
