V.S. Pritchett on Mansfield and Chekhov

Who Are These People?

This is the heading given in the Norton Critical Edition to a short excerpt from an essay by V.S. Pritchett (written in 1946) in which he discusses Mansfield and Chekhov, among other things.  I find the piece filled with helpful insight. Pritchett refers to several stories we are reading, especially “At the Bay.”  As the excerpt runs only a page and a half, it’s a quick read.  Added note, 5/27:  I’ve improved the quality of the PDF to make it easier to read.
