The poignant, everyday dramas of Imperial Russia with the subtle sound effects including music by Pyotr Tchaikovskiy and the Russian-sounding narrator adding credibility and authenticity to the listening. Featuring: Talent, Anyuta, The Helpmate, Ivan Matveyitch, Polinka.

Of course Chekhov is not giving a direct instruction or providing readers with a manual on how to live a life, but it is possible to find solutions in his stories ? they appear between the lines for each reader. Resolutions are different for each person and only each individual soul can find the right and most appropriate way in their life. Chekhov's own response to this is well documented. He often insisted that the job of an artist was not to answer questions, it was to ask them.
