About this title

Synopsis:

In The Complete Stories of Anton Chekhov, Volume 2: 1886, Blackstone Audio has compiled fifty-five of Chekhov's short stories.

[Read by Anthony Heald]

A Russian author, playwright, and physician, Anton Chekhov is widely considered one of the best short-story writers of all time. Having influenced such writers as Ernest Hemingway, Raymond Carver, and James Joyce, Chekhov's stories are often noted for their stream-of-consciousness style and their vast number. Raymond Carver once said: ''It is not only the immense number of stories he wrote -- for few, if any, writers have ever done more -- it is the awesome frequency with which he produced masterpieces, stories that shrive us as well as delight and move us, that lay bare our emotions in ways only true art can accomplish.''

About the Author:

AUTHOR: Anton Chekhov (1860-1904), the author of hundreds of short stories and several plays, is regarded by many as both the greatest Russian storyteller and the father of modern drama. He described the Russian life of his time using a deceptively simple technique devoid of obtrusive literary devices, thereby becoming the prominent representative of the late nineteenth-century Russian realist school. His early stream-of-consciousness style strongly influenced the literary world, including writers such as James Joyce.
