She liked to be foolish, But she was definitely not a fool. The child in her frolicked cute, She saved him in herself. And he was very grateful, Gave her the game and fun, And her look was radiant, Though not call her a model, Everyone was in love with her. She laughed so wonderfully At all boring people, Although sometimes inappropriate. But so charming, so charming, That no offense, damn it!
These are not the words of Chekhov, but it is like a description of Anna from his work "Woman's Kingdom". She liked to fool around, but it was also written there that she was not at all stupid: "She wanted to talk crazy, laugh, fool around, but the dark corner behind the piano was sullenly silent, and all around, in all the rooms of the upper floor, it was quiet, deserted.
She loved sensitive romances, but she had a rough, raw voice, and therefore she only accompanied, and sang barely audible, with just her breath. "
I also saw this phrase somewhere. Having rummaged through the net, I found information, judging by which this is a quote from the work "Woman's Kingdom". The author of this work is just Anton Pavlovich. But, opening the book and typing words from the quote into the search, I did not find anything. I did not find the real author, but these are not the words of A.P. Chekhov.
