    Chekhov Stories is a collection of short stories by the late 19th-century Russian author, Anton Chekhov. The stories generally revolve around the subtle personal aspects of unremarkable characters, oftentimes of a middle class or aristocratic background. His short, poignant and stylistically-polished stories present short vignettes dealing with themes of love, death, sorrow and desire, rarely providing them with unambiguous conclusions. One of his most famous stories, "Lady with the Pet Dog" chronicles the inconclusive affair between a two married people who fall in love while on vacation.
