The Fighter against the myth, or the memoirist who considers himself a Hercules (Anton Pavlovich Chekhov: an attempt at a characterization by N.M. Ezhov).
The article is devoted to the scandalous memoirs of Nikolai Ezhov about Chekhov, in which the author was considered an average writer and a greedy and petty man. The memoirs are analyzed in the context of the history of the formation of the literary reputation of Chekhov.
