ANTON PAVLOVICH CHEKHOV (1860-1904) was a Russian physician, playwright and master of the modern short story. Chekhov practised as a medical doctor throughout most of his literary career, and once wrote: "Medicine is my lawful wife and literature is my mistress; when I get tired of one, I spend the night with the other."

He was a literary artist of laconic precision who probed below the surface of life, laying bare the secret motives of his characters. His best plays and short stories lack complex plots and neat solutions. Concentrating on apparent trivialities, they create a special kind of atmosphere, sometimes termed haunting or lyrical. Chekhov described the Russian life of his time using a deceptively simple technique devoid of obtrusive literary devices, and he is regarded as the outstanding representative of the late 19th-century Russian realist school.

Chekhov initially wrote stories only for financial gain, but as his artistic ambition grew, he made formal innovations which have influenced the evolution of the modern short story. His originality consists in an early use of the stream-of-consciousness technique, later adopted by James Joyce and other modernists, combined with a disavowal of the moral finality of traditional story structure. He made no apologies for the difficulties this posed to readers, insisting that the role of an artist was to ask questions, not to answer them.
