Anton Chekhov's Selected Plays (Norton Critical Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This Norton Critical Edition includes five of Chekhov's major plays--, , , , and --and three early one-act farces that inform his later work--The Bear, The Wedding, and The Celebration. Laurence Senelick's masterful translations closely preserve Chekhov's singular style--his abundant jokes and literary allusions and his careful use of phrase repetition to bind the plays together. "Letters" is the largest collection of Chekhov's commentary on his plays ever to appear in an English-language edition. "Criticism" includes eleven essays by leading European and Russian Chekhov scholars, most appearing in English for the first time, including those by Boris Zingerman, Maria Deppermann, and Lev Shestor. This volume also provides discussion of Chekhov's plays by some of the twentieth century's great directors, including Konstantin Stanislavsky, Peter Brook, and Mark Rozovsky. A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included.

Synopsis:

Anton Chekhov revolutionized Russian theater through his inimitable portrayals of characters faced with complex moral dilemmas.

Synopsis:

These new translations of Chekhov's five major plays and three of his one-act farces include variant readings from earlier versions and manuscript versions.
