For my review I chose the story "Hush" by Russian writer Anton Chekhov. It is a short ironic novel about journalist's work night. Ivan Krashyhin, the main hero of this text try do his writing, and absolutely all prevents his working. Son`s voice, stove's smocking, at least he heard "an even monotonous whispering. . . . It is Foma Nikolaevitch, the lodger in the next room, saying his prayers." (Chekhov, 1886, p.1). It is the really typical Chekhov's short story. He was a master of humorous sketches, when some pathos and pathetic meet irony and gives rise to a tragicomic conflict.(Melville Sayre, 1925)
