    There are thirty four stories by the master in this volume and I might write about every single one in the book – they’re all like pearls: some just a little bit bigger and some just a little bit smaller…Vanka Zhukov, a nine year old boy, sent three months earlier to be apprenticed to the shoemaker Aliakhin, did not go to bed on Christmas eve. He waited till master and apprentices went to church, then took a bottle of ink and a pen with a rusty nib from the master’s cupboard, spread out a rumpled sheet of paper in front of him, and began to write. Before tracing the first letter, he looked fearfully several times at the doors and windows, cast a sidelong glance at the dark icon, surrounded on both sides by long shelves of shoe lasts, and heaved a choking sigh. The paper lay on a bench, and he himself knelt down by the bench.“Dear grandpa, Konstantin Makarych!” he wrote. “So I’m writing you a letter. I wish you a Merry Christmas and all good things from the Lord God. I have no father or mother, you are the only one I have left.”The stories are sad and they are funny… They are full of laughter and they are full of tears…“And yesterday they gave me what for. The master dragged me out to the yard by the hair and thrashed me with a belt, because I was rocking their baby in the cradle and accidentally fell asleep. And last week the mistress told me to clean a herring, and I started with the tail, so she took the herring and began shoving its head into my mug…”The tales are sweet and they are bitter. The tales are bittersweet. The compassion is blended with irony and misery is mixed with hilarity… In the evening, while we were having tea, the cook served a full plate of gooseberries. They weren’t bought, they were his own gooseberries, the first picked since the bushes were planted. Nikolai Ivanych laughed and gazed silently at the gooseberries for a moment with tears in his eyes – he couldn’t speak for excitement; then he put one berry in his mouth, glanced at me with the triumph of a child who has finally gotten his favorite toy…Humans are quite different – some wish for the stars in their pockets and for some a plateful of gooseberries is enough…

    If a writer who told the stories of ordinary people like you and me, using only few pages, in the 1800s can make us read him in this day and age, he is a true master. Whenever you feel like you are stuck in the world of fantasies, super natural stories and average romance novels, go to Chekhov. He will bring you back to reality.

    The Short Stories of Anton ChekhovOf course, any fan/writer/enthusiast of the short story should read this book! I would recommend reading this in conjunction with either Stephen King's Graveyard Shift or Edgar Allan Poe's collected works. That probably sounds like a strange recommendation but Anton Chekhov was a very caring writer that, as a medical doctor, obviously had access to both the upper and lower rungs of society. His emphasis is on the broad sweep of society and on emotion. Both King and Poe have a very strong inclination toward the lower depths of mankind and, unlike Chekhov, their stories show a very strong inclination toward structure, particularly toward plot and definite endings. So, by reading a couple collections, someone new to short stories could get a decent feel for the spectrum of possibilities. Of course, there are many other collections to choose from such as "You've Got to Read This" and "Fifty Great American Short Stories."I really can't say enough about this collection. It's to be admired and not imitated. Chekhov's style is one of an infinite number of possibilities. But academic teachers of the short story seem to have been treating it for the past ten years or so as if it were the end all be all. Teaching Chekhov to eager college freshman and first year MFA students who long to pen the next great novel is about the dumbest thing a teacher could do. The reason for this is that Chekhov has no style. So trying to teach a Chekhovian style is obviously a fool's errand. His genius is an outgrowth of both his physician like caring for all of his countrymen and his encyclopedic knowledge of the places and times in which he lived. 'About Love' may very well be my favorite all time story and 'Gooseberries' is definitely in my top five.

    I had never read anything by Chekhov before. He's most famous for his plays and I never read those either I believe plays must be experienced in the theatre and not read at home (I don't like the theatre at all). This is an old volume of some of his shorter works, translated into Greek in the late 60s. OK, what can I write here? The man was a genius and it's a real literary disaster we lost him so young he died of TB aged 44. I particularly loved the one novel in this collection, Ένα παιδάκι στην απέραντη Στέπα [ “Степь„ ~ The Steppe] (1888), the longest piece in this book (100 pages), but I also adored some of the very short stories like Νύχτα στο νεκροταφείο [ “На кладбище„ ~ In the Graveyard] (1884), Βολόντια [ “Володя„ ~ Volodya] (1887) and Ο Γιούσεβ [ “Гусев„ ~ Goussiev] (1890). Very difficult to create full, three dimentional characters and to make the reader care about them within 4 pages, Chekhov is a Master at this.The one thing I must say made an impression is how traditional these stories felt. They make old rural Russia of the last decades of the nineteenth century come alive in a loving way and are filled with extremely religious language and attitude (I absolutely loved that!). This volume started with a long literary critique of Chekhov by the Chairman of the Soviet Authors' Committee, written in Stalinist USSR in the early 50s. This author went on and on about how Chekhov was all about Socialism and hate for the Czarist Russian Empire he lived in and all its old customs and beliefs and how it was so sad that he died before witnesing the Revolution a decade later and how contemporary Soviet citizens can appreciate his very insightful writings that foreshadow the new Soviet Motherland I got nothing of all of that reading these stories! They felt almost moralistic studies of manner! All the characters had God in their mouths at least every second paragraph of every single story. Anything that happened was only because God allowed it and we should all bow to His will. (Russia is so close to Greece!) If there is a willful irony in these portrayals, if he supposedly showed that the Russian people's great Orthodox faith was in reality superficial and fake or that they were not 'woke', I didn't get that at all. I didn't want to either. But it's so interesting that literature can be interpreted in so many different ways.

    My first Chekhov ever. I really liked this short story collection! I have a thicker book at home but my brother gifted me this shorter edition a while back so I decided to try this one first! I am obsessed with Russian literature so I am rarely disappointed by a Russian author (*thinking about Gogol*). These short stories have themes in common such as sickness and despair. All of his characters are real, fascinating and universal. And, then, there’s the writing style that is formidable and super literary yet highly readable.

    This one recalls beery evenings when I still shuddered from the emotional impact of such simple stories. I suppose most folks at the time the early 1990s were swayed by Carver or Bukowski. I worked ALL the ime but recall buying this new at hawley Cooke and then being floored. The Grasshopper is the one which lingers, assuming a parallel position with Joyce's Araby and tales from Sherwood Anderson as the haunting foundation of a life spent between pages.

    "I am going to order you to do something new, if you haven’t done it already. Get a collection of the short stories of Chekhov and read every one. Then read “Youth” by Joseph Conrad. I’m not suggesting that you do these things. I am ordering you to do them." Kurt Vonnegut's life advice to his children

    Anton Pavlovici Cehov aka Chekhov, political commentary That Chekhov is one of the greatest writers it is not for humble me to confirm, emphasize. I am glad that I started reading him from a tender age. For some reason, I remember reading Chekov stories in the mountains, in Predeal. I was in a room near the Orizont hotel, waiting for something and someone to appear. In the meantime I was reading Chekhov, that’s about all I can recall.It is a strange thing, happening to me once in a while another time and place, another book: I have been reading Wuthering Heights, an audio book version, in the Baneasa Forest, some 3 4 years ago. It was raining and I was walking with my borzoi…at that time there were only three of them, now there are five of them. Near the Baneasa forest I have been reading Fathers and Sons and many other books: that’s an area where I walk my dogs every morning and as a side show, I have one book or another. Why I distinctly remember these two? Beats me…Coming back to Chekhov I have a love hate relationship with the Russians, almost all things Russian.Their literature marked me from the age of 16, when I started reading Dostoyevsky, Gogol and Tolstoy. But this was also a time, when I was enduring shortages, the oppression of the Communist regime brought in by the…Russians.I love my Russian Hounds, bred by the Russian Czars and nearly exterminated by the Bolsheviks.The politics of today’s Russia are horrible. They have a despot ruling the country who stands for everything I hate.There are many similarities between Romanians and Russians, apart from sharing the same Orthodox religion. In fact, I feel that my people are in many ways closer to the Russian “soul „than to the Western spirit, way of thinking. I may be wrong, obviously.Many of the stories of Chekhov have an international flavor; we identify universal values, issues. But many of the twists and plots could have taken place (indeed they actually do) where I live.

    My favorites: Gooseberries and Lady with a DogWithout sounding too pseudo intellectual, I now love Chekov. I used to avoid him like I would avoid men with goatees in coffee bars, because frankly they would either quote from Baudelaire Fleurs de Mal or Chekov or worse yet have a dog eared copy of Chekov in their hands while sipping a latte in a coffee bar.We did a staged version of Lady with a LapDog at the ART a couple of years ago and Three Sisters last year. Now I understand his importance in the theatre and with writing in general. Remember he was a doctor first, a writer second. No one unerstands the subtleties of the human condition like Chekov does.It's a great book to have on the bedstand When I'm not ready to start a whole book or tired of the New Yorker An anthology of Chekov's shorts is just what I need to clear my head.


  10. Elizabeth Elizabeth says:

    Quite liked this little collection. Makes me want go read some of his works. No story was bad per se, but there were only like two or three that stood out as beyond average. I do really appreciate his writing style with particular reference to his ability to clearly illustrate his characters. They were the soul of each story.
