Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

The theatrical genius of Nikolay Gogol has gone largely unappreciated by English-speaking audiences because pedantically literal translations have left his plays virtually unperformable. These fresh translations restore the vitality of Gogol's language and humor, finally allowing his dramatic art to speak directly to Western readers, directors, actors, and theater-goers. This volume contains The Government Inspector and Marriage - Gogol's greatest full-length plays, comedic cornerstones of the Russian theatrical repertoire - and a one-act satire, The Gamblers. Also included are writings on theater from Gogol's notebooks and correspondences.

Book News Annotation:

**** The original edition, published as The Theater of Nikolay Gogol (U. Of Chicago Press, 1980) is cited in BCL3. Eschews the pedantic, literal translation that has in the past rendered Gogol's plays virtually unperformable in English. Fresh translations are provided of The Government Inspector and Marriage, considered by many to be Gogol's greatest full-length plays, and a one-act satire, The Gamblers, as well as his writings on theater from his notebooks and correspondences. No index.
