In [Leskov]'s The Sentry an army Private grapples with his conflicting sense of duty, which leads to a squalid nighttime cover up in the Tsar's Winter Palace in St Petersburg. The last act follows a man overburdened with errands from friends and family giving a frenzied and absurd account of his chores and obligations in An Unwilling Martyr by [Anton Chekhov].
