I am quickly becoming a fan of Anton Chekhov. This is the thrid story I've read by him, and while this one takes the cake, the others were good, too.

This was a great story, where the title is a little misleading. The duel, itself, is fairly unimportant (though, it does make for an intersting climax). The portraits of Chekhov's characters are outstanding. They were very real and flawed.

This was a great little piece of literature.
