Flashback Friday with Anthon Chekhov

Our Flashback Friday goes back a lil to those late 1800’s to the mother country Russia with short story and play writer, Anton Chekhov.

Known for his early use of the type of writing which eventually became known as ‘stream of consciousness’ Chekhov was obviously influenced by the poetry and writings from the first anthology of The Idiom magazine.
