A Chronological List of Plays by Anton Chekhov
Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (Анто́н Па́влович Че́хов, 29 January 1860 – 15 July 1904)
Chekhov is one of greatest playwrights of modern times. He is known for his plays, often combining elements of both comedy and tragedy. While works reflect the frequently turbulent developments specific to his homeland, their lasting appeal lies in Chekhov's talent for exploring universally human situations with grace and dexterity.
