After Nadya, a sixteen year old girl, returns home from seeing a play at the theater, she is happily consumed with its plot of unrequited love. To Nadya, unrequited love is the most interesting type of love—after all, love is boring if everyone is happy.

Nadya’s thoughts quickly turn to her two suitors, Gorny and Guzdev. Although they have both declared their love for her, she wants to believe that they do not truly love her. Trying to emulate the unrequited love with which she had become fascinated after her visit to the theater, she writes a letter to Gorny to create tension. But wouldn’t it be even more intriguing if she were to write love letters to both suitors?

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.
