The Bear

The Bear
by Anton Chekhov,
in a new translation by Basil Clarke

 A B O U T


In The Bear, Chekhov satirises the Russian tendency to be over emotional.

A merchant calls to collect a debt from a widow and her aged servant. In the tempests of emotion that follow, the original dispute between them is dwarfed.

Basil Clarke has been translating between Russian and English for many years.
