Description

Encyclopaedia Britannica's editors oversee subject areas in which they have extensive knowledge, whether from years of experience gained by working on that content or via study for an advanced degree.

To support them and to pay his tuition fees, he wrote daily short, humorous sketches and vignettes of contemporary Russian life, many under pseudonyms such as "Antosha Chekhonte" (Антоша Чехонте) and "Man Without Spleen" (Человек без селезенки). The Art Theatre commissioned more plays from Chekhov and the following year staged Uncle Vanya, which Chekhov had completed in 1896. With the work in question—a long story entitled “ Steppe”—he at last turned his back on comic fiction. For example, there's "Chekov's Sea Gull and Shakespeare's Hamlet," "Craftsmanship in Uncle Vanya," etc. The volume also contains four of Chekhov's early short 'vaudevilles' as well as a substantial introduction by Michael Frayn.Chekhov died on 15 July 1904 at the age of 44 after a long fight with tuberculosis, the same disease that killed his brother. By that time he was already the economic mainstay of his family, for his father could obtain only poorly paid employment.

Chekhov later concluded that charity was not the answer, but that the government had a duty to finance humane treatment of the convicts. Chekhov’s literary progress during his early 20s may be charted by the first appearance of his work in a sequence of publications in the capital, St. Furthermore, Ivanov portrays a complex protagonist grappling with his identity, showcasing Chekhov's ability to portray deep psychological struggles on stage.The two men contemplate the futility of existence and the unrequited love of the same woman, the new wife of Professor Serebryakov, whose arrival brings up long-repressed emotions. In the school, he began to publish hundreds of short comics to support his mother, sisters and brothers. No part of this excerpt may be reproduced or reprinted without permission in writing from the publisher. And Vladimir Nabokov criticised Chekhov's "medley of dreadful prosaisms, ready-made epithets, repetitions".
