This books was called Nachala i Kontzy when first published in 1908 in Russian and has been titled Anton Tchekhov and other essays as well as Penultimate Words in English when published in 1916. Lev Shestov, like Soren Kierkegaard before him, liked to ask questions. He asks if its possible to disentangle the hidden meaning of Tchekhov's works. If Dostoevsky is doomed eternally to be 'on the eve'. What if every possibility should have been exhausted, and endless repetition should begin? He discusses writers and philosophers such as Schopenhauer, Ibsen, Dostoevsky, Kant, and the ancient Greek philosophers in this book. Shestov has been called a Christian philosopher who philosophized with all his being. (by Craig Campbell)

I think that should be good Amy. Do you see anything that should be changed?

Amy, somehow the system thought Murry was the author. I changed it everywhere that I saw it. He was one of the translators. Is that part of it okay?

I have fixed the author name on the project page (so it will show correctly when we go to the catalog... but yes, you have to manually change it in the first post as that has already been generated).
I'm not sure why it does that... not the first time, but not so common that I routinely check. It has Samuel Koteliansky as a translator. Is that correct? I've added Murry as an additional translator.

Samuel Koteliansky as a translator and Murry as an additional translator is correct.

Not much happened while you were gone... although the software update has broken the Magic Window in some cases (for adding readers).
