Comments Early Short Stories, 1883-1888 (Modern Library)

  1. It s easy to be sympathetic to all of Chekhov s characters, even in these early stories Some are funny, farcical and even outrageous, while others are very sad In the comedy A Drama , Medusina bores a famous writer, Pavel Vasilyevich, to death with a drama she s written that he ends up swinging a paperweight at her head and killing her The story of orphaned Vanka at Christmastime, apprenticed to a brutal shoemaker, is enough to bring one to tears These amazing early stories already showcase Chek [...]


  2. POST READ A wonderful range of stories here, from what are termed cartoons because of their brevity humorous, ironic, satirical yet sympathetic ones that will just tear at your heart,the endings left unsaid because you can write them in your head.These are fine Chekhov, which show that the genius was there from the start,and why these were recognised by ordinary Russians in ordinary magazinesand are still treasured.You will be delighted and moved to make their acquaintanceN T MISS OUT WHILE READ [...]


  3. The Kiss trans By Constance Garnett The water was running, he knew not where or why, just as it did in May In May it had flowed into the great river, from the great river into the sea then it had risen in vapour, turned into rain, and perhaps the very same water was now running before Ryabovitch s eyes againWhat for Why And the whole world, the whole of life, seemed to Ryabovitch an unintelligible, aimless jestAnd turning his eyes from the water and looking at the sky, he remembered again how fa [...]


  4. It takes a special talent to be snarky and poignant at the same time Granted, Chekhov doesn t attempt this in every story, but when he does, it s awesome And even when he doesn t, it s still pretty sweet.A couple of decisions by the translators early on made me furrow my brow, but it s hard to be a translator, and they at least explained the reasons for their decisions in the notes Overall, there weren t too many places that jarred on my sensibilities as an English reader.


  5. Wonderful collection of Chekhov s early short stories One can clearly see the progression in his writing style from the first story to the last By the way, the last two stories The Steppe and Light were well worth wading through Also, memorable are The Cattle Dealers, Kashtanka, The Privy Councillor, Mari d Elle, The Huntsman, etc etc.


  6. For the last month and counting I ve been am in a reading frenzy for all of Chekhov s stories officially selected for complete works or not not this edition, savoring every minute of it And, while I still love the works of Turgenev for aesthetic reasons, I m pleased to find in my latest pile of delights the playfulness, diversity, and the actuality of a very soulful charmer


  7. I actually read the Hebrew translation of the shorts stories Chekhov published between 1880 and 1888 It s a mix bag and could use with a short introduction for each story, giving the reader a perspective into the culture in which the stories were written.


  8. anton chekov punya gaya na.walo dia dah punya gaya lucu yang naas ya klo itu yg boleh rhe deskripsikan tentang tulisan na tapi memang seperti itulah itu hidup pada jaman na mungkin bukan hidup, tapi bertahan hidupgitulah


  9. Brilliant writing His stories still ring true So much great writing into such small and short stories, amazing




  10. Somewhat uneven stories and sketches, but his skill is obvious, some entries are amazing, and it s interesting to see his aesthetic developing.


  11. Absolutely brilliant Highly recommended In my opinion, he is the greatest short story writer of all time.
