While vacationing in Yalta, Gurov, a married, middle-aged man, becomes enraptured by a lovely young woman on the beach walking her dog. After a brief affair, the couple part, but despite the pressures of their separate lives, both are deeply affected by their fleeting attachment.
"The Lady with the Dog" was written shortly after Chekhov met Olga Knipper, an actress he would marry two years later. Considered to be one of his greatest stories, "The Lady with the Dog" deals with the complexities and realities of deep human relationships.
