Chekhov/Tolstoy Love Stories
About Chekhov/Tolstoy Love Stories
Chekhov's "An Artist’s Story" tells the story of Nicov, a painter who encounters two very different women on a visit to the country. The flirtatious Genya flatters the artist with questions about miracles and the eternal, while her pragmatic sister Lidia ridicules the artist by questioning the necessity of landscapes in a world where people are poor and hungry. Together, they bring him to a new understanding of himself. Tolstoy's "What Men Live By" tells the story of a Russian peasant couple whose lives intersect with a mysterious stranger whose odd ways and brilliant smile bring them to a new understanding as well.
