    Степь Kindle º Mass Market Paperback Степь kindle, Степь EpubThis 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 where he came from and his family are barely mentioned There are passages describing the Steppe which are uite 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

    Степь Kindle º Mass Market Paperback Степь kindle, Степь EpubThis 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 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 some of his stories

    Степь Kindle º Mass Market Paperback Степь kindle, Степь Epubthe exact title of my book is the steppe and early storiesbut i couldn't find that version on goodreadsthere 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 and the goal was to entertain and make the reader laughthose short stories give an image for the russian public life with love and compassion to the poor personactually 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 you

    Степь Kindle º Mass Market Paperback Степь kindle, Степь EpubThis 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 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
