Anton Cechov

Anton Čechov

Anton Chekhov (1860-1904)grew up in a poor family with a father who was a strict disciplinarian. The children were made to get out of bed at five o'clock in the morning and were expected to work in the family shop before going to school. Anton, however, was soon to start making his own money: he created stories that were printed in the local newspaper and was thus able to support his family. Later in life, he attended to people in his capacity as a doctor, became a world-famous writer and travelled the world.
