The Lady with the Dog and Other Stories – Anton Pavlovich Chekhov
Download The Lady with the Dog and Other Stories ebook. “The Lady with the Dog” (Russian: Дама с собачкой, translit. Dama s sobachkoy)[a] is a short story by Anton Chekhov. First published in 1899, it describes an adulterous affair between Dmitri Dmitritch Gurov, an unhappily married Moscow banker, and Anna Sergeyevna Von Diderits, a young married woman, an affair which begins while both are vacationing alone in the Crimean sea resort of Yalta.
The story comprises four parts: part I describes the initial meeting in Yalta, part II the consummation of the affair and the remaining time in Yalta, part III Gurov’s return to Moscow and his visit to Anna’s town, and part IV Anna’s visits to Moscow. This is one of Chekhov’s most famous pieces of short fiction. Vladimir Nabokov, for instance, considers it as one of the greatest short stories ever written.
I hadn’t read Chekhov since college, but a mention of this book in my favorite blog rekindled my interest in him and I downloaded this book. It is absolutely marvelous. If you remember reading “Uncle Vanya” and “The Cherry Orchard” – or if you never have had the pleasure, then you should take the time to reacquaint yourself with the rhythms, the portraits, the emotional and psychological insights that come from his short stories. Cannot recommend this enough!!

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (29 January 1860 – 15 July 1904) was a Russian playwright and short story writer, who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short fiction in history. His career as a playwright produced four classics and his best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critics. Along with Henrik Ibsen and August Strindberg, Chekhov is often referred to as one of the three seminal figures in the birth of early modernism in the theatre. Chekhov practiced as a medical doctor throughout most of his literary career: “Medicine is my lawful wife”, he once said, “and literature is my mistress.”
