Grisha

Anton Chekhov

Anton Chekhov (1860 – 1904) is considered to be the last classic writer of the Golden Age of the Russian literature. Before Chekhov the literature had no way to analyze fleeting features of everyday and to give an overwhelming picture of life simultaneously. Grisha is a story of a boy taken for a walk outside of his house for the first time. He looks at the world around him and studies it with curiosity. He tries to communicate to the adults: his mother, his nanny and the people they meet during the walk. He learns the rules of the world, which is completely new for him, with childish ingeniousness and directness. The writer tries to find an answer to the question, what children may mean as they mutter so lovely, and at the same time shows our life the way we prefer not to think about.
