“Reality is not an inspiration for literature. At its best, literature is an inspiration for reality”
This, in a nutshell, is the best and truest understanding of Anton Chekhov’s and O. Henry’s stories and of literature in general.
He, who is familiar with books and literature, does not need an excuse to enter this website.
He, who loves movies, does not need to be convinced.
He, who has no interest whatsoever in the above, might chose to ignore the subject.
The challenge is to open the world of literature to those who are between these extremes.
We all share a reality that is inspired by literature.
O. Henry and Anton Chekhov turned that inspiration into something truly remarkable.
This web site is the attempt to better understand that special inspiration.
Those who enter due to their profession, who arrive thanks to their hobby, who need it “for school” or who stumbled across the website by accident – this web site is for you.
Enjoy your reading.
