Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While the influence of Chekhov in modern theater worldwide, and especially in America, has been immense, translations into English have tended to be too literary and have not communicated the full emotional power and precise attention to detail of Chekhov's Russian. Milton Ehre began translating Chekhov's plays to provide professional theaters with performance texts that capture the feel and rhythms of spoken, rather than written, language. Chekhov for the Stage is the first publication of his revised versions of The Three Sisters, Uncle Vanya, The Cherry Orchard, and The Sea Gull. Ehre's sensitive renderings of these classics make this volume the translation of choice for performers and directors, teachers, and the general reading public.

Synopsis:

Chekhov For The Stage sets a new standard for dramatic translation. While the influence of Chekhov in modern theater worldwide, and especially in America, has been immense, translations into English have tended to be too literary ad have not communicated the full emotional power and precise attention to detail of Chekhov's Russian.

About the Author

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (29 January 1860 – 15 July 1904) was a Russian physician, dramatist and author who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short stories in history. His career as a dramatist produced four classics and his best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critics. Chekhov renounced the theatre after the disastrous reception of The Seagull in 1896, but the play was revived to acclaim in 1898 by Constantin Stanislavski's Moscow Art Theatre, which subsequently also produced Chekhov's Uncle Vanya and premiered his last two plays, Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard. Chekhov had at first written stories only for financial gain, but as his artistic ambition grew, he made formal innovations which have influenced the evolution of the modern short story.

Milton Ehre is a professor of Slavic languages and literatures at the University of Chicago. He is the author of Isaac Babel and Oblomov and His Creator: The Life and Art of Ivan Goncharov and co-translator of The Theater of Nikolay Gogol
