All Russian literature lovers know Беликов, the famous “man in a case” from Chekhov’s well-known story “Человек в футляре.” What is your take on this story? Read it and post a comment. You can find the story in English at http://www.eldritchpress.org/ac/jr/189.htm
The Hartford Stage is putting on a stage performance of “Человек в футляре” in late February/ early March. Беликов will be played by the great Russian dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov. This is a rare event, and I look forward to attending it with as many of you as possible.
