Chekhov's dry Russian character studies are difficult to read after so much time and political upheaval have erased much of their relevances, but the human natures, social and relational difficulties, and deep psychological and philosophical dilemmas revealed timelessly expose a great depth of what it means to be human and know humans. I especially enjoyed "The Duel," "Ward No.6," and "My Life."
