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)
