Comparing Chekhov, Nabokov & Viramontes

Uploaded by :

A 3 page essay that summarizes, contrasts and compares 3 short stories. Anton Chekhov’s “The Huntsman,” Vladimir Nabokov’s “Sights and Symbols” and Helena Viramontes’ “The Moths” are three short stories that are expertly crafted to show how characters deal with adversity. While vastly different, in each story the author uses characterization and point of view to convey the main thematic thrust, which pertains to the resilience of the human spirit and the role of hope in keeping people going in the face of adversity.
