Ladies by Anton Chekhov
The importance of women and their influence can never be underestimated. This story vividly shows how in 19th century Russiana women pull strings behind scenes to influence even the most principled and seemingly unbreakable of decision makers. And only Chekhov knows how to express such delicate matters in the most enjoyable and humorous way.
