Chekhov, Anton: The Wife and Other Stories. v1, 8 Jan 2017
Anton Chekhov was born in 1860, the grandson of a serf who had bought his own freedom, and died of tuberculosis in 1904, a renowned doctor, playright, writer of hundreds of short stories, and friend of Leo Tolstoy.
Some of his stories contain brief put-downs of his fellow Russian authors. Many of them expose the dreadful poverty, injustice, and class distinctions in the Russia of his time. Each one is about relationships between men and women.
The short stories included in this ebook are: The Wife, Difficult People, The Grasshopper, A Dreary Story, The Man in a Case, Gooseberries, About Love, and The Lottery Ticket.
The text for this ebook was taken from The University of Adelaide ebook library, and checked against other versions. I have silently corrected typos, curled quotes, used British English, and made changes to spelling and hyphenation using oxforddictionaries.com.
