Book News
Rayfield (Russian Literature, Queen Mary and Westfield College) combed Chekhov archives to uncover thousands of documents and letters (most never before published) which tell of a life far more entangled and turbulent than ever suspected. Holding to the theory that biography is not criticism, the author discusses Chekhov's stories and plays only as they emerge from his life and affect it, and he explores Chekhov's life as a son, brother, friend, and lover.
