Any idiot can face a crisis – it’s day to day living that wears you out. Anton Chekhov

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (January 29, 1860 – July 15, 1904) was a major Russian playwright and perhaps the foremost modern writer of the short story. His technique, which included an almost clinical objectivity, rejected traditional plotting (rising and falling action, transformation of the hero, heroes vs. villains, etc.) for a more natural exposition. Chekhov is a modernist insofar as his impressionistic renderings of scene do not impose moral judgment as much as enlist the reader’s subjective response. His attempts to paint life through vividly capturing commonplace incidents helped to revolutionize the short story genre.
