Ivan Lyashkevsky, a Polish lieutenant who suffered a head injury, spends a large amount of time grumbling about the native people of the town in which he lives—he thinks them to be lazy and useless, and is quick to express his views. On this particular day, he is visiting with his friend Franz Finks and studying his native landlord out the window.

Lyashkevsky grows increasingly angry with the native people as he discusses their flaws with Finks throughout the entire day. By that night, Lyashkevsky has discovered even more people and things to be disgruntled with, not realizing that he embodies much of what he has come to dislike so strongly.

Anton Chekhov was a Russian physician, dramatist and author who is considered to be one of the greatest writers in history. His stream-of-consciousness short stories, written near the end of the 19th century, spurned a new literary genre that would later be echoed in works of several great writers, including James Joyce and William Faulkner. Chekhov’s stories are essential reading for all literary enthusiasts.

About the Author
Author Anton Chekhov

Anton Chekhov (1860–1904), the author of hundreds of short stories and several plays, is regarded by many as both the greatest Russian storyteller and the father of modern drama. He described the Russian life of his time using a deceptively simple technique devoid of obtrusive literary devices, thereby becoming the prominent representative of the late nineteenth-century Russian realist school. His early stream-of-consciousness style strongly influenced the literary world, including writers such as James Joyce.
