The Short Stories

“For those new to Chekhov: Reading the stories in order is a wonderful experience; however, I recommend beginning with a few humorous stories, such as “Oh! the Public!” (39), “The Orator” (92), and “A Transgression” (124). Next try one of Chekhov's most moving stories, “Misery” (45). Among the longer stories, I suggest beginning with “Ward No. 6” (166), “The Duel” (160), and “The Steppe” (148), which contains the most famous thunderstorm in literature. Finally, be sure to read the famous trilogy made of “The Man in a Case” (189), “Gooseberries” (190), and “About Love” (191)."

“Reading Chekhov was just like the angels singing to me.” — Eudora Welty, 1977

    I am still tempted to imagine that nature had some grand, marvellous design when she created that girl.

    I was ashamed at the sight of the footmen, the coachmen, and the workmen who met us. It always seemed to me they were looking at me and thinking: “Why are you doing nothing?”

    The Russian actor does not know how to be funny; he acts with profundity even in a farce.
