This time, we'll reading and discussing "The Lady with the Dog" by Anton Chekhov. A copy of the story can be found here. Chekhov is different from a lot of short story writers in that his endings are unconventional. Rather than bring a conflict to a conclusion, he implies that the conflict continues well after the story is over. "The Lady with the Dog" is a prime example of this. In my opinion, Chekhov is the greatest short story writer ever, and this particular story is one of the best I've ever come across.
