Love of One's Neighbor

About the Story

Love of One's Neighbor Leonid Andreyev (1871-1919) was a Russian novelist, short story writer, and playwright who studied law and worked as a police and court reporter in Moscow. After Andreyev’s first short story was published in 1898, Russian writer Maxim Gorky encouraged Andreyev to further pursue his writing career. Interested in psychology, Andreyev examined in depth the human psyche, which led him to create some of the most memorable characters in Russian literature. Some of Andreyev’s most well-known works include his 1902 short story, “Thought,” and his 1922 play, He Who Gets Slapped.
