Synopsis:

About This Book

"Hate you!" Laevsky said quietly, breathing heavily. "I've hated you a long time!"

This new translation of the literary masterpiece— which combines a beautiful romance with high suspense— is here presented for the first time as a stand-alone volume.

One of Chekhov’s most important lengthy works, this remarkable story gives a startling twist to his classic, ongoing study of bourgeois romance when he sets it on a collision course with a decaying, Czarist concept of honor. It ends in the ultimate Chekhovian observation: that fate is often ludicrous.

This Is A Melville House “HybridBook”

HybridBooks are a union of print and electronic media: Purchasers of this print edition also receive Illuminations—additional illustrated material that expand the world of Chekhov’s novella through text and illustrations—at no additional charge. 

 

To obtain the Illuminations for The Duel by Anton Chekhov, simply scan the QR code (or follow a url) found at the back of the print book, which leads to a page where you can download a file for your preferred electronic reading device.

"Illuminations" contains writings by Mikhail Lermontov - Ivan Goncharov - Alexander Pushkin - Herbert Spencer - Friedrich Nietzsche - Jack London - Thomas Paine - Francis Bacon - Charles McKay – And a guide to the game of vint.

 

Full-color illustrations include: William Hogarth - James Joseph Tissot - Jan Steen - The Shahnameh and more.

 

Also Included: “Against The Duel: Writing In Protest of Dueling
