Book excerpt: Seminar paper from the year 2001 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,3, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Fachbereich Englische Philologie), course: Proseminar 'Katherine Mansfield', 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This paper will discuss differences and similarities of The Child-Who-Was-Tired first published on February 24 in the New Age and later, short after her return from Bavaria, in 'In a German Pension' published in 19112 by Katherine Mansfield and Anton Chekhov's Sleepy, which was written nearly 20 years earlier3. The parallels between the characters and the plots, especially in the outcome of both short stories, make Katherine Mansfield suspicious of having committed plagiarism. "Anton Chekhov's short stories were first welcomed in England and America just after the turn of the century as examples of late nineteenth-century realism [...]." Characterised as 'slices of life' they could have served as patterns or examples for Mansfield's stories, which are characterised in the same way. In so far she writes at least in Chekhov's tradition. She "could have read Sleepy at Queen's College as early as 1903, when [...] her literary interest was expending." The question of plagiarism will be answered in the conclusion of this paper, when the differences and similarities are worked out properly.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Chekhov is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential literary figures of modern times. Russia's preeminent playwright, he played a significant role in revolutionizing the modern theatre. His impact on prose fiction writing is incalculable: he helped define the modern short story. Beginning with an engaging account of Chekhov's life and cultural context in nineteenth-century Russia, this book introduces the reader to this fascinating and complex personality. Unlike much criticism of Chekhov, it includes detailed discussions of both his fiction and his plays. The Introduction traces his concise, impressionistic prose style from early comic sketches to mature works such as 'Ward No. 6' and 'In the Ravine'. Examining Chekhov's development as a dramatist, the book considers his one-act vaudevilles and early works, while providing a detailed, act-by-act analysis of the masterpieces on which his reputation rests: The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Nach ihrem großen Roman »London NW« legt Zadie Smith mit dieser brillanten Erzählung nach – ein literarischer Diamant! Jeden Montag beobachtet Fatou einen Federball, der hinter den hohen Mauern der Botschaft von Kambodscha hin und her fliegt – ein scheinbar unendlich andauerndes Match. Fatou ist auf dem Weg zum Schwimmbad, wo sie jeden Montagmorgen ihre Bahnen zieht. Neben den sonntäglichen Treffen mit Andrew Okonkwo, einem bibelfesten Studenten aus Nigeria, ist dies die einzige Stunde in der Woche, die ganz ihr gehört. Den Rest der Woche arbeitet Fatou als Haushälterin bei den Derawals, kauft ein, kocht, putzt und hütet die Kinder. Nein, eine Sklavin ist Fatou nicht. Hin und wieder wird sie geschlagen, und bezahlt wird sie für ihre Arbeit nicht, das Haus aber verlässt sie regelmäßig und ohne um Erlaubnis fragen zu müssen. Fatou ist stoisch, sie geht durchs Leben, wie sie ihre Bahnen im Schwimmbad zieht, und es scheint fast, als würde alles immer so weitergehen – bis Fatou einem der Kinder zufällig das Leben rettet und damit das eingespielte Gleichgewicht der Familie Derawal durcheinanderbringt.Mit »Die Botschaft von Kambodscha« stellt die großartige Zadie Smith einmal mehr unter Beweis, dass es manchmal nur weniger Worte bedarf, um eine große Geschichte zu erzählen. »Dieses prägnante Glanzstück zeigt einmal mehr, warum Zadie Smith im Alter von 38 Jahren zu den kenntnisreichsten, witzigsten, differenziertesten Beobachtern der post-kolonialen Landschaft zählt.« The Star

This book was released on with total page 280 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: World’s Most Popular Short Stories is a collection of tales that are soothing, yet scintillating, motivational and magical, and a gentle mix of the common and the special. Handpicked stories by four master craftsmen – Guy de Maupassant, Anton Chekhov, O Henry and Saki – will not only give you a taste of their contemporary societies and cultures, but also take you on an adventure of a lifetime. Their extraordinary stories are a mixture of tragedy and humorous satire, irony and the macabre, in which the stupidities and hypocrisy of conventional society are viciously pilloried. You will meet the common folks who love to spend evenings in the company of girls, and you will also meet couples from humble origins working hard to repay a debt which was wrongly assumed in the first place. You can run into love seeking you in some stories, and destiny waiting to change the course of lives in others. The heady mix of humour, satire and drama makes these stories an essential cocktail of emotions.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A revelatory portrait of Chekhov during the most extraordinary artistic surge of his life. In 1886, a twenty-six-year-old Anton Chekhov was publishing short stories, humor pieces, and articles at an astonishing rate, and was still a practicing physician. Yet as he honed his craft and continued to draw inspiration from the vivid characters in his own life, he found himself—to his surprise and ocassional embarassment—admired by a growing legion of fans, including Tolstoy himself. He had not yet succumbed to the ravages of tuberculosis. He was a lively, frank, and funny correspondant and a dedicated mentor. And as Bob Blaisdell discovers, his vivid articles, stories, and plays from this period—when read in conjunction with his correspondence—become a psychological and emotional secret diary. When Chekhov struggled with his increasingly fraught engagement, young couples are continually making their raucous way in and out of relationships on the page. When he was overtaxed by his medical duties, his doctor characters explode or implode. Chekhov’s talented but drunken older brothers and Chekhov’s domineering father became transmuted into characters, yet their emergence from their families serfdom is roiling beneath the surface. Chekhov could crystalize the human foiibles of the people he knew into some of the most memorable figures in literature and drama. In Chekhov Becomes Chekhov, Blaisdell astutely examines the psychological portraits of Chekhov's distinct, carefully observed characters and how they reflect back on their creator during a period when there seemed to be nothing between his imagination and the paper he was writing upon.
