"Lady with a Lapdog." Anton Chekhov.

One-minute review: The story of an affair. Both are married to someone else. Both are enchanted with each other. Both feel guilty. They separate, but their memories are vivid. They go back to their own married lives. He initiates another contact in the theater of her town. She comes to him in Moscow and the story ends with the two of them realizing—that the affair is complicated and their relationship is just beginning.

Theme: Every affair between a man and a woman that begins in delight eventually becomes a very complicated problem.
