Summary Note The Undiscovered Chekhov shows us a new side of Chekhov. Peter Constantine's historic new collection presents thirty-eight new stories and through them a fresh interpretation of the Russian master. In contrast to the brooding representative of a dying century we have come to associate with Chekhov, here is work from the 1880s, when Chekhov was in his twenties and his writing was sharp, witty, innovative, and youthful.
