Oh good God he kept saying with great relish Good God 'Gooseberries' is accompanied here by 'The Kiss' and 'The Two Volodyas' three exuisite depictions of love and loss in nineteenth century Russia by Chekhov the great master of the short story form Introducing Little Black Classics books for Penguin's th birthday Little. Now this was a pessimistic short story but in a sense realistic Chekhov suggests that happiness is flawed and is meaningless The only way a man can be happy is by shutting out the misfortune of others and living in a state of ignorant bliss But according to him this gives no real purpose to life The only way to live a purposeful life is by being kind to others unto death This is all brought to the realisation of the narrator through a gooseberry Yes a gooseberry I like the way this was done because it shows the self serving nature of happiness The narrator’s brother has absolutely disgusting gooseberries but to him they’re the fruit of the gods He has convinced himself that they are delicious This is juxtaposed against how he has shut out the realities of the world; he has shut out the realities of how a gooseberry should taste His happiness has only been achieved by ignoring the poverty and destitution of Russia Comparatively his fine gooseberries have only been created by ignoring how a proper tasting gooseberry should taste His happiness simply serves himself “The illusion which exalts us is dearer to us than ten thousand truths” This is a grim ethos because it is impossible to change all the misfortunes of the world He essentially says that no man should be happy whilst others suffer That’s all well and good but people will always suffer; it’s a horrible truth of human existence So by his logic no man has the right to happiness because of it This is a bleak outlook and an unfair observation of the world The narrator’s brother has worked hard all his life; he may be cold and stingy but doesn’t he have a right to enjoy the fruit of his labours He cannot change poverty nor world hunger His happiness may be selfish but it is happiness he has earnt Should he be miserable and destitute simply because others are I liked this short story simply because it was thought provoking I think Chekov’s observations are true and stark thought they essentially say we should all do than achieve happiness This again is true but unobtainable Most people are selfish and that’s just life unfortunately I won’t be reading any of Chekhov in the future because I found his work to be a little too depressing and pessimistic for my taste Penguin Little Black Classic 34 The Little Black Classic Collection by penguin looks like it contains lots of hidden gems I couldn’t help it; they looked so good that I went and bought them all I shall post a short review after reading each one No doubt it will take me several months to get through all of them Hopefully I will find some classic authors from across the ages that I may not have come across had I not bought this collection
