Chekhov is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential literary figures of modern times. Russia's preeminent playwright, he played a significant role in revolutionizing the modern theatre. His impact on prose fiction writing is incalculable: he helped define the modern short story. Beginning with an engaging account of Chekhov's life and cultural context in nineteenth-century Russia, this book introduces the reader to this fascinating and complex personality. Unlike much criticism of Chekhov, it includes detailed discussions of both his fiction and his plays. The Introduction traces his concise, impressionistic prose style from early comic sketches to mature works such as 'Ward No. 6' and 'In the Ravine'. Examining Chekhov's development as a dramatist, the book considers his one-act vaudevilles and early works, while providing a detailed, act-by-act analysis of the masterpieces on which his reputation rests: The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard.

Review:

'James N. Loehlin's book offers the undergraduate student an expert analysis of Anton Chekhov's prose works and drama in their literary-historical context ... This highly recommended book encourages the reader to appreciate Chekhov's unquestioned mastery of both drama and fiction ... Loehlin explores adroitly Chekhov's humane if unsentimental vision, which combines comedy, dark humor, despair, skepticism, irony, and a 'yearning for the transcendent'. The book's annotated bibliography guides students in pursuing further research into Chekhov's works.' William M. Hawley, The European Legacy: Toward New Paradigms

Book Description:

One of the greatest modern writers, Chekhov was an influential figure in both fiction and drama. Beginning with an engaging account of Chekhov's life and cultural context in nineteenth-century Russia, this Introduction includes detailed analyses of his short stories and plays and demonstrates what makes Chekhov so important and unique.
