In his later writings he focused on satirising Russian political corruption. Anton Chekov (1860-1904) Anton Chekov is noted in history as one of the all-time greatest short fiction writers. Chekov’s work focused mainly on plays and short stories, with plays including The Cher- ry Orchard and Uncle Vanya to his credit.
