The Duel

Autor: Anton Chekhov Czyta: Frank Marcopolos Audiobook

Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) is a Russian writer universally regarded as an all-time master. According to Mikhail Chekhov, while working upon "The Duel," Chekhov periodically met with the zoologist and writer Vladimir Wagner. The two men had extensive conversations, one of which was on the subject of the then-popular idea of "the right of the strong one," which became the basis of the philosophy of the main character of the story, named Von Koren, for whom Wagner apparently served as a basic template.

The story has been twice adapted for the screen, once in 1973 and again in 2010.
