The Black Monk

by Anton Chekhov (Author)
26 loans, One at a time

When Andrey Korvin returns to the home he grew up in, his former guardian Yegor welcomes him with enthusiasm, excited to share his life’s work—his expansive garden—with his former ward. Korvin soon begins courting Yegor’s daughter, Tanya, and with Yegor’s blessing, the couple marry. But Korvin has also begun receiving regular visits from a Black Monk whom he knows exists only in his mind. At once, the marriage, which once seemed ideal, begins to suffer as the Black Monk appears more and more often.
