Author Anton Chekhov

An attacker
"Before the judicial investigator stands a small, extremely skinny man in a motley shirt and latham ports. His hair-covered and ripped face and eyes, barely visible because of his thick, overhanging eyebrows, have an expression of sullen harshness. On the head of a whole hat long already uncombed, confused hair, which gives it even more, spider harshness. He's a boss..."

"The young red dog - a cross between a d get-go with a poo - looked very much like a fox, ran back and forth on the pavement and looked around uneasily. Occasionally she stopped and, crying, lifting one chilled paw, then another, tried to let herself know: how could it happen, that she got lost?

House with mezzanine
"It was six or seven years ago, when I lived in one of the counties of T-o province, in the estate of the landowner Belokurov, a young man who got up very early, went to the bottom of the house, drank beer in the evenings and all complained to me that he was nowhere and no one meets sympathy. He lived in the garden in the outhouse, and I was in an old bar house, in a huge hall with columns, where there was no furniture, except for the wide sofa on which I slept, and even the table on which I laid out solitaire. Here always, even in quiet weather, something buzzed in the old Amos furnaces, and during a thunderstorm the whole house trembled and seemed to be cracking apart, and it was a little scary, especially at night, when all ten large windows were suddenly illuminated by lightning..."

Life in questions and exclamations
«... Who did God give, son or daughter? Is it going to be baptized soon? Big boy! Don't drop it, mummy! Oh, oh! Fall!! Did you cut through? Is that his gold? Take a cat from him, or she'll scratch him! Pull your uncle by the moustache! So! Don't cry! The house is coming! He can walk already! Get him out of here - he's impolite!...."
"Every evening, before I went to my room and went to bed, my wife and I read a book aloud. Reading continued normally until the tired eye ceased to distinguish the letters. The most witty, artistic places seemed then incomprehensible algebraic formulas, deadly wanted to sleep, and sleep beckoned so uncontrollably that no interesting position described by the author, whether it was a duel, a crime disclosure, love with a dubious outcome - could not make me awake and read the chapter to the end. The book slammed shut, I kissed my wife, wished her a good night, and, taking the candle, went to myself..."

In the front sit and waiting patients, more and more men. All but two or three of them are bosses, as the general tells me to leave the smelly boots in the yard..."

The Man in the Case The Man in the Case - book and audiobook
Anton Chekhov's story "The Man in the Case" is the most famous work from his series "Little Trilogy". The story of a skittish teacher of the ancient Greek language, which is vividly characterized by his favorite phrase: "no matter what happens." This is an ingenious embodiment of the image of a person creating an impenetrable "case" around him, a protective shell. Personalities like Belikov existed then, they are now - so the story of the great Russian writer and playwright does not lose its relevance. A small work after the first publication in the magazine "Russian Thought" in 1898 caused a wide literary and public resonance. Most of all, critics were surprised, admired or irritated (depending on the attitude to Chekhov) the connection of comic and tragic essence in such a small literary form as the story. The vivid characteristic image created by Chekhov took its place among other household names such as Oblomov and Chichikov. The story was twice filmed by Soviet cinema.

"Merciful sovereign, Pavel Andreevich! Not far from us, namely in the village of Pestomov, there are unfortunate facts, which I consider a duty to report. All the peasants of this village sold the huts and all their property and moved to the Province of Tomsk, but did not reach and returned. Here, of course, they have nothing more, everything is now foreign; they settled three and four families in one hut, so that the population of each hut of at least 15 people of both sexes, not counting small children, and in the end there is nothing, hunger, famine, famine of hungry or typhoid; everyone is literally sick.

"Time was going on for the night. The deacon Savely Gykin was lying in his church guardhouse on a huge bed and did not sleep, although he always used to fall asleep at the same time with chickens. From one side of the planted, sewn from multi-colored patches of blanket looked his red hard hair, from under the other sticking out large, long-worn legs. He listened......"
