Anton Chekhov: Early Short Stories, 1883-1888
Modern Library, 1999 - 642 pagina's
This collection, selected by Shelby Foote, presents seventy of Chekhov's early short stories, written between 1883 and 1888, in celebrated translations by Constance Garnett. One of the most memorable is "The Death of a Government Clerk, " a glorious parody in which a fawning official is undone by an ill-timed sneeze. "On the Road, " the history of an educated man's search for convictions, is one of Chekhov's finest dramatic stories and the source of his first full-length play, Ivanov. And in "The Steppe, " which marked a turning point in Chekhov's career, a boy's picaresque journey across the Russian heartland evokes the soul of Russia itself.

answered his wife without taking her eyes off the flaxen head . Savély angrily
puffed all the air out of his chest and turned abruptly to the wall . Three minutes
later he turned over restlessly again , knelt up on the bed , and with his hands on
Savély undressed slowly , clambered over his wife , and lay down next to the wall
. " To - morrow I ' ll let Father Nikodim know what sort of wife you are ! ... The job '
s enough for you , and you can look for a wife in the forest , blast you !
