dancing up and down like a kettle on the hob, with no notion where he was going or what he was going for The rapid motion through the air blew out his red shirt like a balloon on his back and made his new hat with a peacock s feather in it, like a coachman s, keep slipping on to the back of his head He felt himself an intensely unfortunate person, and had an inclination to cry A little boy leaves his home and first time he finds himself face to face with the huge outside world and people that live there He is sad and full of child s fears and sorrows and a new unknown life lies ahead.Chekhov masterfully describes boy s feelings and his experience of the journey and his pictures of nature are brilliant Suddenly, exactly over his head, the sky cracked with a fearful deafening din he huddled up and held his breath, waiting for the fragments to fall upon his head and back He inadvertently opened his eyes and saw a blinding intense light flare out and flash five times on his fingers, his wet sleeves, and on the trickles of water running from the mat upon the bales and down to the ground There was a fresh peal of thunder as violent and awful the sky was not growling and rumbling now, but uttering short crashing sounds like the crackling of dry wood And The Duel is florid portrayal of provincial living deadly boredom and stagnation, wicked gossiping and envy And the hostility of two main characters turns into an acidic travesty A silence followed Boyko took a pair of pistols out of a box one was given to Von Koren and one to Laevsky, and then there followed a difficulty which afforded a brief amusement to the zoologist and the seconds It appeared that of all the people present not one had ever in his life been at a duel, and no one knew precisely how they ought to stand, and what the seconds ought to say and do But then Boyko remembered and began, with a smile, to explain Gentlemen, who remembers the description in Lermontov asked Von Koren, laughing In Turgenev, too, Bazarov had a duel with some one There s no need to remember, said Ustimovitch impatiently Measure the distance, that s all The Steppe and The Duel are Anton Chekhov s two best novellas and they are my favourite as well This is just for the novella, The Steppe I ve only just had a taste of Chekhov s short stories, so this was different It took me a while to adjust everything lengthened and widened out just like the Steppe itself, I suppose And it was disconcerting Here is a young boy, leaving home, travelling with a relative to begin school and life away from everything he knows They meet an array of people and situations and weathers and settings, and the boy is somehow at a distance from all even w This is just for the novella, The Steppe I ve only just had a taste of Chekhov s

home, travelling with a relative to begin school and life away from everything he knows They meet an array of people and situations and weathers and settings, and the boy is somehow at a distance from all even where he came from and his family are barely mentioned There are passages describing the Steppe which are quite evocative the thunderstorm especially But the thing that struck me forcibly was that from beginning to end, the boy seemed a stranger within himself to everyone and everything A big, lonely, unpredictable world Unknowns ahead and unknowns behind And I imagine that s the truth for a young one, just starting out This is a review only of Anton Chekhov s long short story or short novel entitled The Steppe, which apparently is not published by itself I had read it years ago, but felt like giving it another look It is probably one of my favorite tales of childhood, and certainly my favorite Chekhov story The story is seen from the point of view of a child in the provinces

my favorite Chekhov story The story is seen from the point of view of a child in the provinces being taken from his home to attend a school in a larger provincial city There is a simple beauty and innocence to this tale that time cannot stale It makes me want to read someof his stories The Steppe is an example of a story that has no major incidents It mentions the story of a small boy being taken to school in another city by his uncle and his uncle s friend.I could not locate a peak which the event ascend to However, the way Checkhov describes the scenery of nature and the natural

talent The Steppe itself is a road story, travelling a long way in the minds of its constantly growing cast of characters It has a feel of a panorama about it, although the narrative thrust is pretty much the travels and travails, rather than any lit match on a firework I enjoyed it but for the 140 page investment a bitdrive would have helped me to love itThe chapter on inn murders is the stand out one for me.The Swedish Match is an entertaining murder mystery with a twist in the tale quite an unusual one, which makes it witty and enjoyable Mire is a black tale of usury, lampooning the ruling classes for their corruptability It reminds a little of scenes from the later An Inspector Calls by Priestley It too has an ironic wit that sits well with the otherwise serious tone Volodya, on the other hand, is anything but funny, with its focus on a deeply earnest young man and his struggle with his passions Tragic and harsh a real stand out story for me Verotchka is similarly a tale with a splinter of ice in its heart and prefigures the coldness of Dostoevsky in its unremitting negativity of a worldview Another great story But these two pale into insignificance beside the soul crushing verbal spectacle that is the nightmarish Sleepy, written from the perspective of a nursemaid blacking out from exhaustion, so that her mind slips away from her Anyone who has cared for a baby will know the unique challenges faced through exhaustion and will shudder at this tale It reminds me of a very concentrated form of a story from Dubliners but, if anything, the potency is greater Handle with care the exact title of my book is the steppe and early stories but i couldn t find that version on goodreads.there is about 40 short stories in this book, they are the first writings of chekhov in the weekly and monthly newspapers at 1880 in the era of assassinating of alexander the cesar, there was restrictions on the media but chekhov has to write under those restrictions because it was his only way to provide money for him and his family so that circumstances made him write pointless stories an the exact title of my book is the steppe and early stories but i couldn t find

pointless stories and the goal was to entertain and make the reader laugh.those short stories give an image for the russian public life with love and compassion to the poor person.actually the two stars that i gave for this book is only for those short stories and i can t judge chekov s writings by what i mentioned previously in his situation for the money need and for the restrictions the country was under they can draw a light smile at your face but you can feel that you are wasting your time while reading them but you can t skip the book 244 page of short stories are fine till his first long novel started at page 245 the steppe you can t imagine how was the struggle by reading those words, and the joy when flipping the page knowing that i finished a damn boring page.picturing the steppe and the valley of the road for a boy who want to reach his school with the company of his uncle and a priest, what a pointless miserable novel..the last line will make you evenangry and how this life will be after 225 pages that i felt i am reading 2000 this stupid question come across your eyes and you will be very pissedfor your information leo tolstoy said that the steppe is one of chekhov s most amazing works. no comment This review is only for The Steppe I have not read the other stories yet I enjoyed the author s command of language His descriptions of the land, the weather, the time, and the place were superb I felt like I was there on the plains the steppe with the characters It reminded me of reading Willa Cather s My Antonia in that way The story is very simple and

stories yet I enjoyed the author s command of language His descriptions of the land, the weather, the time, and the place were superb I felt like I was there on the plains the steppe with the characters It reminded me of reading Willa Cather s My Antonia in that way The story is very simple and that s where the novella fell short for me The story really never goes anywhere which for me resulted in a complete lack of any kind of urgency or suspense However, that is made up for in large part by the strengths I mentioned above Chekhov s mastery of the human condition is phenomenal. Nice prose and interessting characters Russian culture is so different from what i am used too, so this was a very interessting peak into the history of old mother Russia.
