Ariadne and Other Stories is a collection of short stories by Anton Chekhov, one of the greatest masters of the short story form. In this collection, Chekhov explores a wide range of human experiences and emotions, from the joys and sorrows of love to the loneliness and isolation of modern life. Each story is characterized by Chekhov's hallmark style - simple and unadorned prose, vivid characterizations, and a deep understanding of human nature. Through these stories, Chekhov delves into themes of love, loss, death, and the search for meaning in life, and provides a powerful and timeless insight into the human condition. This collection is a testament to Chekhov's mastery of the short story form and a must-read for anyone interested in literature and the human experience. In Ariadne, we meet Ivan Shamokhin on a steamer bound for Sebastopol. Ivan tells the story of his helpless love for Ariadne, a beautiful but cold young woman. Ariadne is selfish, her whole life is style and surface. Ivan becomes her lover, and with his money almost gone and his life destroyed he is still attached to Ariande. Other Stories in this volume include: The Kiss, A Problem, Terror, Anna on the neck, Not Wanted, Typhus, Misfortune, A Trifle from Life.
