                              Chekhov practiced all his adult life as a family doctor. That was his primary career.

                              It's called the Chekhov list.

                                'futurity' was a perfectly acceptable word in the early 19th century

                                Now days, we just say "the future." I'm not saying it's better or worse. I'm just saying.

                                Futurity, it's the opposite of pastity.

                                I truly do believe that Miss Hortense Watkins, my senior year AP English teacher, would have absolutely fainted over this burdensome sentence!

                                I think Shelley was in a rather, ahem, expansive mood, and rather full of himself. Many poets speak of the future, not at all. You see, he's affecting my sentence construction!

                                ^I can't believe I did that. Wonder if I found the right Miss Watkins.
