The Lady With the Pet Dog is the story of Gurov, a married and misogynistic man, and his affair with the similarly married Anna, who he meets on vacation. The plot is riddled with frustrations, as Gurov at first attempts to dismiss the affair as trivial before becoming haunted by its memory, an obsession that spurs him to track Anna down to her hometown. Gurovís emotions never conveniently coincide with the state of his relationship with Anna, and the story ends on an ambiguous note that leaves their future unresolved.
