Hi everyone,

Can anyone help me? I'm looking for the Polish title of a Chekhov short story - if it's been translated, that is. The English title is The Exclamation Mark and there's a brief summary of it here:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Exclamation-Mark-Hesperus-Classics/dp/1843911744

A ProZ colleague has also kindly supplied the original Russian title:

In Russian it is literally ВОСКЛИЦАТЕЛЬНЫЙ ЗНАК.

See, for instance, http://www.ostrovok.de/old/classics/chekhov/story078.htm[/i]

All help will be most gratefully received!

Thanks in advance!
Caryl
