About the Author

Believed to be one of the greatest short story writers in the history of literature, Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860-1904) came from humble beginnings but rose in popularity as a playwright and short story writer. He wrote humorous sketches and vignettes of contemporary Russian life under a pseudonym. His freelance journalism and comic writings made him immensely popular in the Russian public and literary circles by 1888. In 1887, The Lottery Ticket, one of Chekhov’ s most well-known short stories, was published. Russian drama saw its high point when Chekhov’ s plays came out. He wrote fourteen plays, of which four were critically acclaimed— The Seagull (written in 1895), Uncle Vanya (written in 1897), The Three Sisters (written in 1900), and The Cherry Orchard (written in 1903). His stories that created a stir in Russia include ‘ Peasants’ (1897), ‘ The Black Monk’ (1894), ‘ An Anonymous Story’ (1893), ‘ The Student’ (1894), ‘ Gooseberries’ (1898), and ‘ About Love’ (1898), among others. His works have been adapted for screen and continue to be read and celebrated even today.
