Chekhov practised as a medical doctor throughout most of his literary career. Along with Henrik Ibsen and August Strindberg, Chekhov is often referred to as one of the three seminal figures in the birth of early modernism in the theatre. Chekhov had at first written stories only for financial gain, but as his artistic ambition grew, he made formal innovations which have influenced the evolution of the modern short story. He made no apologies for the difficulties this posed to readers, insisting that the role of an artist was to ask questions, not to answer them.Contents:Novel:The Shooting PartyPlays:On the High RoadSwan SongIvanoffThe AnniversaryThe ProposalThe WeddingThe BearThe SeagullA Reluctant HeroUncle VanyaThe Three SistersThe Cherry OrchardShort Stories:The Safety MatchThe BoysGrishaA Trifle from Real LifeThe Cook’s WeddingShrove TuesdayIn Passion WeekAn IncidentA Matter of ClassicsThe TutorOut of SortsA JokeAfter the TheatreVolodiaA Naughty BoyBlissTwo Beautiful GirlsThe Chorus GirlThe Father of a FamilyThe OratorIonitchAt Christmas TimeIn the Coach HouseLady N—s StoryA Journey By CartThe Privy CouncillorRothschilds FiddleA Horsey NameThe PechenegThe BishopThe SlandererThe KissVerotchkaOn TrialThe Mass for the DeadThe Privy CouncillorThe RunawayThe ReedLa CigaleThe Head Gardener’s TaleOystersWomenWoeZinotchkaThe PrincessThe Muzhiks
