I’m looking for a short story that I think is Russian, maybe Chekhov. In the story a man’s wife dies, and because it’s winter he puts the body in the shed for lack of other options. Because the body is frozen he just keeps it there for a long time. When he has to go out there, he hangs his lantern on her jaw, which is frozen open. Anybody know the title of this story?
