Ein unnötiger Sieg : frühe Novellen und kleine Romane by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in German and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lelja Aslovskaja, eine rundliche, rosige Blondine, verachtet die Männer und will dennoch kein spätes Mädchen werden. Aber es ist im Russland des ausgehenden 19. Jahrhunderts gar nicht so einfach, den Richtigen zu finden. Deshalb lebt Lelja augenblicklich auf, als sich der gutaussehende Maler Nogtev für sie interessiert. Nach einem vielversprechenden Anfang ihrer Bekanntschaft erweist sich Nogtev aber eher als schüchterner Liebhaber und kann sich nicht so recht erklären. Lelja verliert die Geduld und stellt ihn zur Rede - woraufhin er der entsetzten jungen Dame errötend und stotternd gesteht, er möchte sie als Aktmodell haben. Der Untertitel dieser Erzählung lautet 'Etwas Romanähnliches', und etwas Romanähnliches haben diese 7 Tschechow-Texte tatsächlich; der kürzeste 'Roman' ist gerade eine Seite lang. Es handelt sich bei allen Texten um frühe Werke des russischen Klassikers (aus den Jahren 1882 bis 1886), die hier erstmals ins Deutsche übersetzt und mit einem ausführlichen Anhang (Anmerkungen, Nachwort)versehen vorgelegt werden. Breit empfohlen
