The Black Monk is a story written by Anton Chekhov that tells the tale of a monk who has been driven to insanity by his obsession with a woman. The story is written in a very descriptive and detailed manner, and uses complex academic jargon to help convey the professor's interpretation of the story. In this story, the professor sees the monk as an example of someone who is consumed by his own desires and drives himself mad in the process.
