Descrizione dell’editore

A forty-year-old man named Dmitri Gurov is intrigued by a young woman walking along the sea front of Yalta with her small Pomeranian dog…  


Anton Chekov’s 1899 story The Lady with the Dog tells of an adulterous affair between a Russian banker and a young lady he meets while vacationing in Yalta. The story comprises four parts: part I describes the initial meeting in Yalta, part II the consummation of the affair and the remaining time in Yalta, part III Gurov's return to Moscow and his visit to Anna's town, and part IV Anna's visits to Moscow. 


First published in the December 1899 issue of the magazine Russkaya Mysl (Russian Thought) with the subtitle "A Story," The Lady with the Dog is considered one of Chekhov's best-known tales exemplifying the author's subtle yet powerful style. Vladimir Nabokov declared that The Lady with the Dog was one of the greatest short stories ever written.
