5/n 6/ (contd.) This is probably too much work for some readers, I get that. But Chekhov's appear to be deceptively simple when they're filled w/ complex layers. I'm planning to reread him for my 2020 reading project. Will share analyses/notes on key stories then.

4/n 5/ There are probably various analyses of this story in Google-land as well. 6/ My general approach to Chekhov is to jot down notes/questions while reading. I dissect key story/plot elements (to understand them better) & technical elements (to decode his magic.) -- contd.

3/n 3/ Look for Janet Malcolm's book, READING CHEKHOV: A CRITICAL JOURNEY. Plenty of nuggets there. 4/ This preface to a recent edition of Chekhov's is by Richard Ford and describes how he, too, was initially baffled and later dazzled by 'The Lady With the Dog'.

2/n 1/ Try Francine Prose's book, READING LIKE A WRITER, where she spends a fair bit of time discussing Chekhov's works. 2/ Also, try this George Saunders class kit on how to approach Chekhov:

1/n 'The Lady With the Dog' is a highly nuanced . My 1st read of it was a surface read too but I then went on to read some critical analyses of it & understood Chekhov's mastery. Some suggestions to approach Chekhov follow, Karan. Hope they help. :)

Today's goal: Know that setting down your anger toward someone doesn't mean excusing or forgiving them—it means protecting yourself. It means refusing to carry something that can poison you if you keep it close too long. Try to let go today, even just a little. Keep moving.

Excited to see this broadcast announcing Poignant Song: The Life and Music of Lakshmi Shankar. I can’t wait for more people to learn of her incredible story and gorgeous music.

I'm really bad about personal pics on social media. It's not such a big deal these days, I know. Will try to get better about sharing them. 🙂

Ah, OK. So it was probably this one then., Christine. I don't know of other major bookstore-cafes in that area.
