Tales of Chekhov 09- The Schoolmistress and other stories










AT half-past eight they drove out of the town.

The highroad was dry, a lovely April sun was shining warmly, but the snow was still lying in the ditches and in the woods. Winter, dark, long, and spiteful, was hardly over; spring had come all of a sudden. But neither the warmth nor the languid transparent woods, warmed by the breath of spring, nor the black flocks of birds flying over the huge puddles that were like lakes, nor the marvelous fathomless sky, into which it seemed one would have gone away so joyfully, presented anything new or interesting to Marya Vassilyevna who was sitting in the cart. For thirteen years she had been schoolmistress, and there was no reckoning how many times during all those years she had been to the town for her salary; and whether it were spring as now, or a rainy autumn evening, or winter, it was all the same to her, and she always—invariably—longed for one thing only, to get to the end of her journey as quickly as could be.

She felt as though she had been living in that part of the country for ages and ages, for a hundred years, and it seemed to her that she knew every stone, every tree on the road from the town to her school. Her past was here, her present was here, and she could imagine no other future than the school, the road to the town and back again, and again the school and again the road.

She had got out of the habit of thinking of her past before she became a schoolmistress, and had almost forgotten it. She had once had a father and mother; they had lived in Moscow in a big flat near the Red Gate, but of all that life there was left in her memory only something vague and fluid like a dream. Her father had died when she was ten years old, and her mother had died soon after. She had a brother, an officer; at first they used to write to each other, then her brother had given up answering her letters, he had got out of the way of writing. Of her old belongings, all that was left was a photograph of her mother, but it had grown dim from the dampness of the school, and now nothing could be seen but the hair and the eyebrows.

When they had driven a couple of miles, old Semyon, who was driving, turned round and said:

'They have caught a government clerk in the town. They have taken him away. The story is that with some Germans he killed Alexeyev, the Mayor, in Moscow.'

'Who told you that?'

'They were reading it in the paper, in Ivan Ionov's tavern.'

And again they were silent for a long time. Marya Vassilyevna thought of her school, of the examination that was coming soon, and of the girl and four boys she was sending up for it. And just as she was thinking about the examination, she was overtaken by a neighboring landowner called Hanov in a carriage with four horses, the very man who had been examiner in her school the year before. When he came up to her he recognized her and bowed.

'Good-morning,' he said to her. 'You are driving home, I suppose.'

This Hanov, a man of forty with a listless expression and a face that showed signs of wear, was beginning to look old, but was still handsome and admired by women. He lived in his big homestead alone, and was not in the service; and people used to say of him that he did nothing at home but walk up and down the room whistling, or play chess with his old footman. People said, too, that he drank heavily. And indeed at the examination the year before the very papers he brought with him smelt of wine and scent. He had been dressed all in new clothes on that occasion, and Marya Vassilyevna thought him very attractive, and all the while she sat beside him she had felt embarrassed. She was accustomed to see frigid and sensible examiners at the school, while this one did not remember a single prayer, or know what to ask questions about, and was exceedingly courteous and delicate, giving nothing but the highest marks.

'I am going to visit Bakvist,' he went on, addressing Marya Vassilyevna, 'but I am told he is not at home.'

They turned off the highroad into a by-road to the village, Hanov leading the way and Semyon following. The four horses moved at a walking pace, with effort dragging the heavy carriage through the mud. Semyon tacked from side to side, keeping to the edge of the road, at one time through a snowdrift, at another through a pool, often jumping out of the cart and helping the horse. Marya Vassilyevna was still thinking about the school, wondering whether the arithmetic questions at the examination would be difficult or easy. And she felt annoyed with the Zemstvo board at which she had found no one the day before. How unbusiness-like! Here she had been asking them for the last two years to dismiss the watchman, who did nothing, was rude to her, and hit the schoolboys; but no one paid any attention. It was hard to find the president at the office, and when one did find him he would say with tears in his eyes that he hadn't a moment to spare; the inspector visited the school at most once in three years, and knew nothing whatever about his work, as he had been in the Excise Duties Department, and had received the post of school inspector through influence. The School Council met very rarely, and there was no knowing where it met; the school guardian was an almost illiterate peasant, the head of a tanning business, unintelligent, rude, and a

Билингвы и книги на иностранных языках. This collection of lesser-known early short fiction - ranging from absurd humorous sketches to psychological dramas and tragic tales - demonstrates Anton Chekhovs mastery of the genre, with stories about marital infidelity, betrayal, deception and love in its various forms. Although varying m tone and purpose, what these tales have in common is a profound and subtle understanding of the human condition, in its farcical and melancholy aspects, couched in Chekhovs trademark minimalist style.

Лишь одно препятствие существенно усложняло дело: для этого им необходимо было встретиться в своём мире после возвращения.

Отличный сайт) Огромное спасибо.

ДА, вариант хороший

И ещё, неизвестно какую конечность тебе оставят, а то обернёшься несчастным калекой, не способным о себе позаботиться. Он увернулся от мощной струи огня с дымом из ноздрей чудовища, и облетел того сзади.

Anton Chekhov The Steppe

and Other Stories




Anton Chekhov was born in i86o in south Russia, the son of a poor grocer. At the age of 19 he followed his family to Moscow, where he studied mcdicine and helpcd to support the household by writing comic sketches for popu- lar magazines. By 1888 he was publishing in the prestigious literary monthlies of Moscow and St Petersburg: a sign that he had already attained maturity as a writer of serious fiction. During the next 15 years he wrote the short stories—50 or more of them—which form his chicf claim to world pre-eminence in the genre and are his main achieve- ment as a writer. His plays are almost cqually important, especially during his last years. He was closely associated with the Moscow Art Theatre and married its leading lady, Olga Knipper. In 1898 he was forced to move to Yalta, where he wrote his two greatest plays, Three Sisters and Tht Cherry Orchard. The premiere of the latter took place on his forty-fourth birthday. Chekhov died six months later, on 2 July 1904.

Ronald Hinglev, Emcritus Fellow of St Antony's Collcge, Oxford, edited and translated The Oxford Chekhov (9 volumes), and is the author of A Life of Anton Chekhov (also published by Oxford University Press). Hc is the translator of four othcr volumes of Chekhov stories in thc World's Classics: The Russian Master and Other Stories, Ward Number Six and Other Stories, A Woman's Kingdom and Other Stories, and The Princess and Other Stories. His transla- tions of all Chckhov's drama will be found in two World's Classics volumes, Five Plays and (forthcoming) Twelve Plays.

A Chronology of Anton Chekhovxvi







The present volume is the fifth selection of Chekhov's short stories to be brought out in The World's Classics, and it completes the paperback publication for this series of his entire CFuvre as a mature fiction-writer. This means that the five volumes contain all those stories which received their first publication between March 1888 and the author's death in 1904. The text is that of the original hardback translation, The Oxjord Chekhov, except that the stories are grouped differently and that textual variants have been omitted, as has much other scholarly apparatus.' The five volumes contain sixty titles altogether, and they maintain so high a level of excellence that many readers will rate them as the finest collection of short stories which any of the world's literatures has to offer. This high standard is maintained in the present volume, with a few minor reservations indicated below, and with the obvious exception of four trifles from the year 1892 which Chekhov himself excluded from his first Collected Works of 1899-1901; these are admitted here more for the sake of completeness than for their literary qualities. 2

It is hoped that the completed paperback publication of these stories will help to correct the common view of Chekhov as a dramatist whose other work is comparatively unimportant. A playwright of genius he certainly was. But he surely deserves even greater admiration for what he achieved with the short story.

It is especially appropriate that this final selection should begin with, and take its title from, The Steppe, since it was the appearance of that renowned saga of the prairies which marked and brought about Chekhov's elevation from the minor to the major league among Russian writers. Its publication in the St

' The Oxford Chekhov (London and Oxford, 1965—80), vols. iv-ix.

Petersburg monthly Scverny vestnik ('The Northern Herald') in March 1888 remains the most important single landmark in the crcativc evolution of its author, then 28 years old.

Chekhov had begun his literary career in 1880 as the author of short comic items possessing little artistic merit. They were written for money (but then, all Chekhov's work was written for money) and published in various humorous magazines of the pcriod. He felt obligcd to maximize such earnings by churning out more and more 'balderdash', as he himself later called it. But a more serious sense of purpose was sometimes dimly discernible even at the outset, and this asserted itself increasingly. The result was that Chekhov, chiefly popular in his early twenties as a lightweight humorist, had nevertheless already begun—during the two or three years preceding the publication of The Steppe —to attract the attention of influen- tial Russian critics and litterateurs. Older writers, of whom D. V. Grigorovich was the best known, began lecturing him on the need to take his talent more scriously, and to write less hasti Iy.

The first fruit of this advice was The Steppe, and particular significance attaches to the status of the publication in which it appeared. Scvc .
