Chekhov, noted author, playwright and physician, is one of the most accessible and enjoyable of the Russian writers. He writes about life’s routines in a way that encompasses the heights and depths of human emotion all in the span of a day, or even a meal. This recording includes four of his most acclaimed short stories, including: "The Black Monk", "The House with the Mezzanine", "The Peasants", and "Gooseberries".
Anton Chekhov's mastery of the short story is well represented in this collection. Chekhov illustrates the human condition in late imperial Russia. His portraits of a walk in the country, a family meal or a visit with a friend capture life's sublime moments as well as its disillusionment, its happiness and grief. George Guidall's skillful narration brings Chekhov's characters to life, making his stories more accessible and his prose even more memorable.
