Chekhov is now the most popular playwright in the English-speaking world after Shakespeare, but many think that his short stories are his greatest achievement. Raymond Carver said: 'Chekhov's stories are as wonderful (and necessary) now as when they first appeared. ...he produced masterpieces, stories that shrive us as well as delight and move us, that lay bare our emotions in ways only true art can accomplish.' Chekhov's stories are ranked No.9 on Time magazine's list of the "10 Greatest Books of all time", January 2007.
