9780140440966: CHEKHOV PLAYS:

The dramatic works of Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) present the actions of ordinary people. He avoids any explicit political treatment, but the depth and subtlety of his art has generated a wealth of interpretation. His representation of human relationships is infinitely sympathetic, and each play contains at least one character who expresses Chekhov's hopes for a brighter future. "The Cherry Orchard" and "Three Sisters" was first published in this translation in 1951. "The Seagull", "Uncle Vania", "The Bear", "The Proposal" and "The Jubilee" were first published in this translation in 1954.

From the Inside Flap:

Realistic and highly sensitive, Chekhov's plays revolve around a society that is on the brink of a tremendous upheaval.

The dramatic works of Anton Chekhov (1860 - 1904) present the actions of ordinary people--in his own words, "as complex and yet just as simple as they are in life".

Chekhov avoids any explicit political treatment, but the depth and subtlety of his art has generated a wealth of interpretation. His representation of human relationships is infinitely sympathetic, and each play contains at least one character who expresses Chekhov's hopes for a brighter future.
