Chekhov's works: a list of the most popular
Creative period of Anton Chekhovcovers moretwo decades, for which was written about 900 works. These are short and more voluminous stories, novels, plays, essays on topical topics.
Early works of Chekhov
The list is opened with the first printed "What is more ofteneverything is found in novels, novels, etc. "and" A Letter to an Academic Neighbor ". Then followed a lot of short stories, scenes that are humorous or satirical in nature and ridicule the realities of life, the vices of people, including insouciance, servility, ritual, etc. These are familiar to the modern reader Unter Prishibeyev and Chameleon, Tolsty and thin "and" Horse name "," Joy "and" Peresolil "," Burbot "and" Surgery "," Malefactor "and" Papa "," Razmaznya "and" Tosca "," Death of an official "and many others. In total more than 400. Briefness, expressiveness, a special role of the artistic detail, talking names are their main features. The stories of the 80s were published mostly in humorous magazines under pseudonyms.
Complete the early period of more voluminousthe works of Chekhov. This list includes the story "Flowers are belated", "Boring Story", "Drama on the Hunt", "Steppe". The latter marked a turning point in the writer's worldview and a transition to a new stage.
The 1990s are often referred to as the Melikhov period inliterary activity of Anton Pavlovich. It was a time when he tried to get as close to the people as possible and to understand his difficult fate. Many works by Chekhov are symbols of the epoch. Their list is also great: "House with a mezzanine", "Chamber No. 6", "Student", "Booty", "Lady with a Dog", "Dushechka", "Bride", "Guys", "In a ravine". The peak of Chekhov's prose became the "Little Trilogy" ("The Man in a Case", "Gooseberries", "About Love") and "Ionich". The heroes of the later stories and novels are, as a rule, intellectuals who have fenced themselves off from the surrounding reality and live in their comfortable world, or little-educated people brought from the people by indifference to the state of indifference.
The theater has always played a significant role in the writer's life. Visiting him at the age of thirteen turned for Chekhov into a passionate passion. And the first drama was written while studying in the gymnasium. Of course, the play "Fatherless" was not known, but to some extent determined the future of Chekhov the playwright.
A sad fate awaited and the work "Onbig road "of 1885 - the censorship did not let it go to press. Thus, if we consider the dramatic works of Chekhov, the list should begin with the play "Ivanov". Next will be one-act "Bear", "Wedding", where the mastery of the writer in creating comic scenes will come to the fore. The "Seagull" (1996), "Uncle Vanya" (1896, the revised version of the work "Leshiy" - 1889, criticized by friends), "Three Sisters" (1900), "The Cherry Orchard" (1903) are considered to be the undoubted masterpiece of the dramaturgic talent of Anton Pavlov. These plays occupy an important place in Russian literature. A.P. Chekhov became one of the founders of the new drama, combining the classical traditions of Russian prose and Ostrovsky's later legacy. His heroes, modest and charming, sincere, and sometimes helpless, are troubled by the search for the meaning of life in rapidly changing historical conditions.
Works about Sakhalin
1990 was marked for the writer by the fact that heheaded for Sakhalin. The purpose of the trip was to fight hunger. However, what he saw left such a deep impression in the soul of Anton Pavlovich that the result was Chekhov's new works. Their list is not large: the book of essays "Sakhalin Island", stories "In exile", "Murder", sometimes here also refer to "Chamber No. 6". But in them, more sharply than before, there is a protest against the prevailing order in the country, which limited the normal life of its citizens.
Chekhov's works for children
The list here is not great, since Anton Pavlovichwrote mostly for adults. He believed that there was no need to invent something for a small audience. It is enough to choose from good literature what you can give to boys and girls. And even those works of Chekhov, whose characters were children ("Vanka", "Grisha", "I Want to Sleep") are clearly addressed to adult readers. So, if we revise everything Chekhov wrote, the list for children will be limited to "Kashtanka", "White-throated" (the writer jokingly called these and similar stories bestial) and "Boys". Success certainly enjoys the story of the dog. But for the last two stories, junior schoolchildren and adolescents prefer "Joy", "Thick and thin", "Horse name", "Chameleon", "Nalima" more often ...
Of course, in one article there is no way to bringthe entire list of works by A.P. Chekhov. Yes, this is not the main thing.
