Chekhov’s penultimate short story, is the tragedy of a member of the intelligentsia whose pursuit of a highly successful clerical career cuts him off from genuine human intercourse. Not until he faces death does the bishop realize that something important is missing from his life—namely, a love and respect for himself, not for his rank.
