The Short Stories

“For those new to Chekhov: Reading the stories in order is a wonderful experience; however, I recommend beginning with a few humorous stories, such as “Oh! the Public!” (39), “The Orator” (92), and “A Transgression” (124). Next try one of Chekhov's most moving stories, “Misery” (45). Among the longer stories, I suggest beginning with “Ward No. 6” (166), “The Duel” (160), and “The Steppe” (148), which contains the most famous thunderstorm in literature. Finally, be sure to read the famous trilogy made of “The Man in a Case” (189), “Gooseberries” (190), and “About Love” (191)."

“Reading Chekhov was just like the angels singing to me.” — Eudora Welty, 1977

    Yalta was hardly visible through the morning mist; white clouds stood motionless on the mountain-tops. The leaves did not stir on the trees, grasshoppers chirruped, and the monotonous hollow sound of the sea rising up from below, spoke of the peace, of the eternal sleep awaiting us. So it must have sounded when there was no Yalta, no Oreanda here; so it sounds now, and it will sound as indifferently and monotonously when we are all no more. And in this constancy, in this complete indifference to the life and death of each of us, there lies hid, perhaps, a pledge of our eternal salvation, of the unceasing movement of life upon earth, of unceasing progress towards perfection.

    I understood that when you love you must either, in your reasonings about that love, start from what is highest, from what is more important than happiness or unhappiness, sin or virtue in their accepted meaning, or you must not reason at all.
