HAPPY BIRTHDAY,ANTON
CHEKHOV !
Anton Chekov, One of the
greatest short-story writers of all
time and also a noted dramatist
whose popularity ,still in the
contemporary world of stage-
drama,is second to none except
Shakespeare, was born in the
nineteenth century Russia during
times that oversaw the rapid
transition taking place in the
Russian Society From The
Conservative Aristocracy To The
Newly Affluent Middle Class Full Of
Hopes n Aspirations Radically
Different From The So Called Old
Regime!
Born This Day On January 29,
1860, In Russia, Chekhov Was
From The Family Of A Grocery
Shop Owner And, Thus Had Been
Living In A Rather Modest Means
Of Life In Rural Parts Of Russia.
He Later Joined The MOSCOW
UNIVERSITY For A Degree In
Medicine And Also Started
Penning Funny Pieces For
Various Humor n Jokes
Magazines.
He Became A Doctor And Had
Started Doing Practices Only To
Have Had Changed His Vocation
Just After A Couple Of Years And
Devoted Much Of His Time To
Writing Stories Which Were Being
Published In Popular Magazines
Of Those Days Precisely 1884
Onwards.
Chekhov Wrote Nearly 600 Short
Stories.
He Was Also Interested In Dramas
And Had Penned More Than A
Dozen, Chief Among Them Are :
”THE SEA GULL” , ”UNCLE VANYA” ,
”THREE SISTERS” , ‘THE CHERRY
ORCHARD” .
Chekhov Was A Keen Observer
And Presented Sketches Of Life
As Was Happening Around With
A Gentleness Interspersed With
Low Brow Satire Full Of Humor
Plus Pathos.
Basically, Chekhov Was Comical In
His Approach ,Though, His Comic
Take On Human Existence Never
Succeeds In Concealing Sincere
Sprinklings Of Tragic Elements
Defining Human Lives!
He Died At 44, Of Tuberculosis, In
A Health Resort In Germany.
His Plays Are Performed Everyday
And Stories Relished Everyhour !
This Is What We Could Term As
