Anton Chekhov Short Story Collection free pdf A timeless observation of the human condition from one of the best story writers in history of world literature. Chekhov's stream of consciousness technique that revolutionised modern literature and his characteristic mix of humour and poignancy unite 11 stories featured in this collection. A Tragic Actor- In A Strange Land- Oh The Public-The Looking Glass- Her Husband- Overdoing It- Talent- Anyuta- The Helpmate- Ivan Matveyich- Polinka- The selection of stories in this book represents Chekhov s early work which perhaps is not as well known as some of his plays. The stories nevertheless possess unique potency and relevance to our modern lives just as they did back in 19th century Russia when they first appeared in various Russian publications. Chekhov himself described his work as comic satire: "All I wanted was to say honestly to people: 'Have a look at yourselves and see how bad and dreary your lives are!' The important thing is that people should realize that, for when they do, they will most certainly create another and better life for themselves. I will not live to see it, but I know that it will be quite different, quite unlike our present life.
