آشنا ترین تعریفی که از غم و اندوه میشد کرد...
خیلی درکش کردم.

تو قسمت ”مطالعه در وقت اضافه“ی طاقچه دیدمش.و چون تا حالا از چخوف نخوندم سریع گرفتم ببینم از سبکش خوشم میاد یا نه که از بس کوتاه بود قابل فهمیدن نبود.

Chekhov is one of those great writers who don't merely describe reality but also adds dimension to it.
Though he intentionally refrained from delivering moral or political sermons in his literary works, Chekhov remains one of the finest moral compasses just by forcing us to examine our conceptions about life and human nature.

Written in a straightforward narrative style, the story opens with a question that encapsulates the protagonist’s struggle “To whom shall I tell my grief?”

عالی به تصویر میکشه چخوف احساسات رو، این داستان من رو یاد این جمله انداخت که اغلب مردم برای سردرد خودشون بیشتر از مرگ دیگری اهمیت می دهند.

واقعا عالیه. یعنی از اندوه حرف نمی زنه، به تصویر می کشه!
این که غم و غصه ی تو واسه هیچکی مهم نیست و همه پی زندگی خودشونن...

NOTA: 5

Este é um dos textos mais tristes que já li na vida. É singelo, com um estilo simples e direto. Ao mesmo tempo seu título é preciso, a angústia é crescente, mesmo que de forma sutil, termina por dominar a leitura até o momento chave do encerramento. O final é triste, real e poético. É triste por que cabe realidade. É real porque cabe poesia. É poético porque cabe tristeza.

Given a modern setting he could be a cab driver. Alone now, the only family he had was his son who, now that he is old, could have replaced him in his job. But his son just died, after spending three days, feverish, in a hospital.

So here are scenes, some daily rituals of his work. In this story, though, he is not a cab driver but a sledge-driver powered by a horse. The cab/taxi during Chekhov's time. He takes in passengers, and tries to make small talk with them. The usual things, ev

Although I hardly managed to write all this and remember the points I had discussed in class during my first oral exam, I managed to get a full mark for the unworthy blather which will follow this utterly lame excuse for a weary review I discussed with my professor.
In short, here it is:

Chekhov’s short story is a lot more complex than one would think, and although the work was fairly short and perusing it did not consume more than ten minutes, I managed to extract a plethora of unart

I listened to this short story as a practice on listening to Audibooks. The selection was not arbitrary, as Anton Checkov is one of my favorite Russian writers and among the greatest in literature.

This book was part of a free channel on Audible that is called "7 days of Anton Chekhov". The narrative was really amazing, the narrator practiced different voices, characters, shrugs, laughs, coughs all a long so you would feel that you are watching a play in the theater!

اما جمعیت بیآنکه به او توجهی داشته باشد و به اندوه درونیش اعتنایی کند در حرکت است... اندوه او بزرگ است و گویی آن را پایانی نیست. اگر ممکن بود سینه یوآن را بشکافند و آن اندوه طاقتفرسا را از درون قلبش بیرون کشند شاید سراسط جهان را فرا میگرفت. اما با وجود این آشکار نیست و خود را گونهای در این حفره کوچک پنهان کرده که حتی روزهنگام هم با چراغ نمیتوان دید.»

What a sad story. It speaks mainly of the need to share our grief and communicate about our feelings, a theme that I feel is very relevant. In the end, the man speaks to his horse about the grief he feels over his son's loss since no one else will listen. The anti-climactic feeling of this moment was heartbreaking.

وقتی که این داستان کوتاه فوق العاده رو خوندم فقط همین قسمت از سهراب بود که اومد تو ذهنم!! مث اون دفه که داشتم کتاب پیرمرد و دریا همینگوی رو میخوندم و یه قسمت از یکی از شعرهای حسین پناهی رو اونجا پیدا کردم... این اولین بار که دارم یه اثر روسی رو تحسین می کنم هر چند باز هم اون غم بسیار توی داستان هست اما کلاً اسمش همینه چه انتظار دیگه ای میخواستم داشته باشم!! وای که عالی بود

Melancholic . I had mixed feelings about this story. On one hand I liked it and thought that it was okay because it talks about reality to an extend: Selfishness to be precise. The story is a good reminder of how selfish we can be taking care of our needs without taking heed to others' anguish. However on the other hand, I thought that the story was monotonous, it had the same emphasis from the beginning to the end. Wish there were more emotions to the story.

I recently decided to regale myself with the experience of having read Chekhov and I picked this story as a starting point.

Daaaaang.

I am not being very innovative here, but the reason why he is considered to be a master of the craft is apparent. The story was all around wonderful - very sad, very moving. The final line was simultaneously devastating and beautiful and will definitely stay with me for a long time.

Many feels were had today and I will neither conf
