"Non dice nulla di nuovo, ma ciò che dice è così convincente, semplice, chiaro, da far paura".
Il segreto del talento di Cechov secondo Gor'kij è tutto in questi tre racconti sul dramma dell'inquietudine: meglio la mediocrità o la pazzia? L'ipocrisia o il vero amore? Un buon matrimonio o la libertà? Una riflessione profonda e modernissima sul coraggio di inseguire i propri

Ritornare a leggere narratori di tale calibro, ha l'effetto dirompente di una cura di disintossicazione. Ricordare di nuovo cosa significhi "evocare", "raccontare", "descrivere" è un'esperienza unica. Niente da fare, siamo di fronte a figure di una tale altezza, che la vita che ci circonda ci sembra un pallido surrogato della realtà. Il pensiero mi sconvolge. Citerò qui un tratto di ironia amara per la sorte mia (e di molte altre persone...):

"S'era laureato in lettere dieci anni prima, ma non e

Racconti diretti, stile lineare di facilissima lettura al punto da far dimenticare che sono scritti all'incirca 100 anni fa. I racconti hanno come filo conduttore il senso della vita. Cogliamo sin dai primi racconti l'obiettività dell'autore, intuiamo in lui un testimone imparziale che ci offre, in poche pagine, l'immagine dell'uomo nella sua quotidianità, impegnato ad illudersi ed ingannarsi per portare avanti la sua esistenza, per sollevarsi dalla mediocrità, per dare un senso ad ogni azione. ...more

Chekov seems to me the prime example of the writer who writes without tricks... and his stories always come alive and are most original & varied, and impossible to imitate... tho he has influenced many.

The Black Monk presents a problem written about by many... but Chekhov does it without using a single word of the condescending diagnostic vocubulary... so that the character, & what enlightens & torments him, transcend the condition from which he can be said to suffer.

Yevgenia Morozova, Chekhov's mother, was the daughter of a cloth merchant.

"When I think back on my childhood," Chekhov recalled, "it all seems quite glo
