My favorite writer is Anton Pavlovich Chekhov. He was a dramatist and is considered to be one of the greatest writers of short stories in history.
From all his works most of all I like Chekhov's tragicomedy "The cherry garden". As for me, this work teaches us a lot about our life, our history and the relationships among generations. It shows us the relationships between members of one family, but I think it can be applied to the relationships between nations and countries.
Although The cherry garden is a tragicomedy, Chekhov's style may be characterized as an impressionist one. He used a lot of sadness, absence of basic information in introductions and conclusions, and always writing to the point.
