This volume offers lively and accurate translations of Chekhov's major plays and one-acts (complete contents listed below) along with a superb Introduction focused on the plays' remarkably enduring power to elicit the most widely divergent of responses, the life of the playwright in its historical and aesthetic contexts, suggestions for reading the plays under a microscope, and notes designed to bring Chekhov's world into immediate focus--everything needed to examine his drama with fresh eyes and on its own artistic terms.
Anton Chekhov is known as one of the world's greatest playwrights and short story writers. He penned the following plays: The Cherry Orchard; The Seagull; Three Sisters; Uncle Vanya; and the short story: Gooseberries. Sharon Marie Carnicke is Professor of Theatre and Slavic Literatures, University of Southern California.
