Overview

Anton Chekhov was a Russian author and dramatist who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short stories in history. His career as a dramatist produced four classics. His plays were written in a "stream of conscious style" and they focus on characters grappling with ethical problems. Initially, his works confused audiences who were used to traditional forms of theatre where plays have a definite beginning, middle and ending. But his profound studies on love, grief, and time with complex and ambiguous characters changed theatre forever and brought in a completely new form of drama.

This collection includes thirteen of his plays:
On The High Road,
The Anniversary,
On the Harmful Effects of Tobacco,
Swansong,
Ivanov,
The Bear,
A Tragedian in Spite of Himself,

The Seagull,
Uncle Vanya,
