Chekhov's little-known literary gem is a profound and moving work, combining the political tensions of the day with a tale of deep poignancy and sorrow. With St. Petersburg awash with extravagant, dissolute bureaucrats concerned only with increasing their vast riches, a secret movement infiltrates one of its members into one such household. Once there, the man sees for himself the profligacy that he has sworn to oppose--yet he also sees purposelessness throughout life. Determining to follow his own values, he embarks upon a new path, little knowing that this too will lead him to tragedy--a tragedy he will find impossible to bear.
