Summary: The further you go from Charlotte Town, the more primitive and hospitable the people become; they warmly welcome a stranger, and seem happy, moral, and contented. This island is the only place in the New World where I met with any who believed in the supernatural. One evening I had been telling some very harmless ghost stories to a party by moonlight, and one of my auditors, a very clever girl, fancied during the night that she saw something stirring in her bed-room. In the idea that the ghost would attack her head rather than her feet, she tied up her feet in her bonnet- de-nuit, put them upon the pillow, and her head under the quilt--a novel way of cheating a spiritual visitant, Konemann, 2000, New York. 2002. Penguin Books. 1st Penguin Classic Paperback Edition. Very Good In Wrappers. Translated from the Russian & With Notes by Ronlad Wilks. Introduction by J. Douglas Clayton. 333 pages. paperback.

FROM THE PUBLISHER - Impressionistic and experimental, these stories from the middle period of Chekhov’s career explore complex, ambiguous and often extreme emotions, presenting a world without easy answers or universal truths. Influenced by Chekhov’s experiences as a doctor, ‘Ward No. 6’, set in a mental hospital, is a savage indictment of the medical profession. ‘The Black Monk’, the story of an academic who has strange hallucinations, explores ideas of genius and insanity. Both ‘A Woman’s Kingdom’ and the extended tale ‘Three Years’ show women discovering that money, marriage and choices do not bring happiness. In ‘Murder’, religious fervour leads to violence, while in The Student’, Chekhov’s favourite story, a young man recounts a tale from the gospels and undergoes a sudden spiritual epiphany. Here, Chekhov’s characters face madness, alienation and frustration before they experience brief, ephemeral moments of insight, often earned at great cost, where they confront the reality of their existence. With an annotated bibliography, chronology and explanatory notes. ISBN: 0140447865.

"Ward No. 6" and Other Stories, 1892-1895 - Paperback

2002, ISBN: 9780140447866

ID: 9780140447866

"Ward No. 6 and Other Stories 1892-1895" collects stories which show Anton Chekhov beginning to confront complex, ambiguous and often extreme emotions in his short fiction. This "Penguin Classics" edition is translated with notes by Ronald Wilks, and an introduction by J. Douglas Clayton. These stories from the middle period of Chekhov's career include - influenced by his own experiences as a doctor - "Ward No. 6", a savage indictment of the medical profession set in a mental hospital; "The Black Monk", portraying an academic who has strange hallucinations, explores ideas of genius and insanity; "Murder", in which religious fervour leads to violence; while in "The Student", Chekhov's favourite story, a young man recounts a tale from the gospels and undergoes a spiritual epiphany. In all the stories collected here, Chekhov's characters face madness, alienation and frustration before they experience brief, ephemeral moments of insight, often earned at great cost, where they confront the reality of their existence. This is the second in three chronological volumes of Chekhov's short stories in "Penguin Classics". Ronald Wilks's lucid translation is accompanied by an introduction discussing the increasingly experimental style of Chekhov's writing during this time. This edition also contains an annotated bibliography, chronology and explanatory notes. Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) was born in Taganrog, a port on the sea of Azov. In 1879 he travelled to Moscow, where he entered the medical faculty of the university, graduating in 1884. During his university years, he supported his family by contributing humorous stories and sketches to magazines. He published his first volume of stories, "Motley Tales", in 1886, and a year later his second volume "In the Twilight", for which he received the Pushkin Prize. Today his plays, including "Uncle Vanya", "The Seagull", and "The Cherry Orchard" are recognised as masterpieces the world over. If you enjoyed "Ward No. 6", you might like Nikolai Gogol's "The Diary of a Madman, The Government Inspector and Selected Stories", also available in "Penguin Classics".
