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.” In The Complete Stories of Anton Chekhov, Volume 2: 1886, Blackstone has compiled fifty-five of Chekhov’s short stories: Art A Blunder Children Misery An Upheaval An Actor’s End The Requiem Anyuta Ivan Matveyitch The Witch A Story without an End A Joke Agafya A Nightmare Grisha Love Easter Eve Ladies Strong Impressions A Gentleman Friend A Happy Man The Privy Councillor A Day in the Country At a Summer Villa Panic Fears The Chemist’s Wife Not Wanted The Chorus Girl The Schoolmaster A Troublesome Visitor The Husband A Misfortune A Pink Stocking Martyrs The First-Class Passenger Talent The Dependents The Jeune Premier In the Dark A Trivial Incident A Tripping Tongue A Trifle from Life Difficult People In the Court A Peculiar Man Mire Dreams Hush!

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Anton Chekhov was equally distinguished as short story writer and as dramatist. His influence upon the short story is still ongoing.” Harold Bloom
“It is not only the immense number of stories he wrote…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.” Raymond Carver
“Chekhov is a master at making his characters’ darkest aspects comprehensible and human. He’s never sentimental and he’s not particularly pleasant, but he will always feel modern because of his astonishing juxtapositions and the way his characters’ swift, darting minds vacillate between idealism and boredom, vanity and hope.” Atlantic Monthly
“With a collection of dozens of stories featuring a multitude of characters, a narrator might find himself significantly challenged. But Anthony Heald comes through with flying colors. He finds a unique voice for each character—whether drunken man, pious widow, or ignorant peasant. Breathing life into each individual, he captures eccentricity, nervousness, and egotism. His enthusiastic reading gives Chekhov his full due and endows this collection with a strong voice of its own.” AudioFile

Author Bio: Anton Chekhov

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.
