Writing towards the close of the nineteenth century, Chekhov - himself a country doctor - recorded in his fiction the symptoms of a diseased society. The seven stories collected here are a bleakly savage indictment of a society paralysed by spiritual malaise, and morbidly conscious of evilswhich can neither be killed nor cured. This volume also contains an Introduction by Ronald Hingley.
Anton Pavlovich Chekhov was a physician, major Russian short story writer and playwright.
