The Kiss and other Stories

Author:

Availability: In Stock

The ten stories in this selection were written between 1887 and 1902 when Chekhov had reached his maturity as a short story writer. they show him as a master of compression and as a probing analyst, unmasking the mediocrity, lack of ideals and spiritual and physical inertia of his generation. In these grim pictures of peasant life and telling portraits of man and women enmeshed in trivialities, in the finely observed, sulfocating in trivialities, in the linely observed, suffocating atmosphere of provincial towns with their pompous officials, frustrated, self-seeking wives and spineless husbands. Chekhov does not expound any system of morality but leaves readers to draw what conclusions they will.
