Well known throughout the world for his great late 19th and early 20th century plays, Uncle Vanya, The Sea Gull, The Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard, Chekhov also wrote numerous short plays. In this volume, George Malko has translated nineteen of Chekhov's short dramatic writings, dating from 1883 to 1902. As Malko notes, this gathering reveals that despite a life of tragedy, pain and disappointments, Chekhov believed in the comic vision of experience.
