ICL: ANTON CHEKHOV AND HIS STORIES - 3 Sessions
ANTON CHEKHOV AND HIS STORIES by Janice Moore
Known as a famed Russian playwright, Anton Chekhov also excelled as a writer of short fiction and is known as the "father of the modern short story." This class will focus on his stories, which reveal that he was an authority on human nature in the same way that as a practicing physician, he knew the workings of the body. Read his stories and see why Leo Tolstoy wrote in his journal, "I am glad that I love Chekhov."
