Summary

Anton Chekhov is now justly celebrated as one of Russia’s greatest writers, but this reputation was hard won in his time. His work consistently challenged expectations, and his insights were not always easy to see. The continued relevance of his stories, however, has shown that Chekhov was ahead of his time, and the nine short stories collected here showcase his very best writing. In such masterpieces as “A Doctor’s Visit”, “Ionitch”, and the title story, “The Lady with the Dog”, Chekhov explores universal themes of ambition and failure, love and loss, and the thin line that divides triumph and despair. Admired for his startling modernity by such artists as Vladimir Nabokov, Virginia Woolf, and Raymond Carver, Chekhov remains one of the world’s most influential storytellers.

Revised edition: Previously published as The Lady with the Dog & Other Stories, this edition of The Lady with the Dog & Other Stories (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
