Review:

'Chekhov is an acute observer who could easily have made his way as a director or dramaturg judging by his ability to spot strengths and weaknesses in not only his own writing but that of others. This book builds a strong picture of theatrical life in Moscow and St Petersburg just before and at the turn of the last century, with vast amounts of bitching seemingly a commonplace. It can also serve as a tangential autobiography since, through its pages, it is possible to learn much about its subject's life and work.' --British Theatre Guide

About the Author:

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860 - 1904) was a Russian writer, playwright and physician, considered to be one of the greatest dramatists and short-story writers in the history of world literature. His career as a dramatist produced four masterpieces of the stage; The Seagull, The Cherry Orchard, Three Sisters and Uncle Vanya. His best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critics. Chekhov practised as a doctor throughout most of his literary career: "Medicine is my lawful wife", he once said, "and literature is my mistress."

Book Description NICK HERN BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Chekhov started writing about theatre - in newspaper articles and in his own letters - even before he began writing plays. Later he wrote in detail about these to his wife and leading actress Olga Knipper, and to the two directors of the Moscow Art Theatre, Stanislavski and Nemirovich-Danchenko. Collected here in Stephen Mulrine s vivid translations, these writings reveal Chekhov s many and varied insights into the way theatre works - and how best to realise his own intentions as a theatre writer.
