9780140444520: The Party and Other Stories (Penguin Classics)

Collection of stories by the Russian short story writer and playwright. Many of his short stories are considered the apotheosis of the form while his playwriting career, though brief, had a great impact on dramatic literature and performance. His major plays are frequently revived in modern productions.

About the Author:

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860 - 1904) was a Russian playwright and short story writer, who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short fiction in history. His career as a playwright produced four classics and his best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critics. 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 theater. Chekhov practiced as a medical doctor throughout most of his literary career: "Medicine is my lawful wife", he once said, "and literature is my mistress."
