Anton Chekhov has begun his literature career in the 1880s. First he deprecated turning a person into slave. Later he began to make higher demands to his characters and to blame not only their environment, but also themselves for losing their dignity and for enslavement and abjection.The Album is a story of an official being congratulated on his jubilee and becoming an album with portraits of his colleagues as a gift. Touched to the depth of his soul he comes home to get warm and loving congratulations there, but as the album that he has just highly valued was taken by kids, his attitude weirdly changes, but the reasons thereof are left to us entirely. The Album will definitely set you thinking and probably check your own behavior and even thoughts as well.
