Chekhov on theatre by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov( Book )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chekhov started writing about theatre in newspaper articles and in his own letters even before he began writing plays. Collected here in translation, these writings reveal Chekhov's instinctive curiosity about the way theatre works-- and his concerns about how best to realize his own intentions as a playwright.--Publisher

Uncle Vanya is one of Anton Checkov's four major plays. It was first performed in 1900, the year after its publication, under direction by the celebrated Konstantin Stanislavski. The text reworks an earlier play by Checkov, The Wood Demon . Critics have attempted to follow Checkov's method and artistic development by tracking the changes he made to the earlier text. The cast of Uncle Vanya is significantly pared back and the ending left less happily resolved

Ein unnötiger Sieg : frühe Novellen und kleine Romane by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in German and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lelja Aslovskaja, eine rundliche, rosige Blondine, verachtet die Männer und will dennoch kein spätes Mädchen werden. Aber es ist im Russland des ausgehenden 19. Jahrhunderts gar nicht so einfach, den Richtigen zu finden. Deshalb lebt Lelja augenblicklich auf, als sich der gutaussehende Maler Nogtev für sie interessiert. Nach einem vielversprechenden Anfang ihrer Bekanntschaft erweist sich Nogtev aber eher als schüchterner Liebhaber und kann sich nicht so recht erklären. Lelja verliert die Geduld und stellt ihn zur Rede - woraufhin er der entsetzten jungen Dame errötend und stotternd gesteht, er möchte sie als Aktmodell haben. Der Untertitel dieser Erzählung lautet 'Etwas Romanähnliches', und etwas Romanähnliches haben diese 7 Tschechow-Texte tatsächlich; der kürzeste 'Roman' ist gerade eine Seite lang. Es handelt sich bei allen Texten um frühe Werke des russischen Klassikers (aus den Jahren 1882 bis 1886), die hier erstmals ins Deutsche übersetzt und mit einem ausführlichen Anhang (Anmerkungen, Nachwort)versehen vorgelegt werden. Breit empfohlen

Den første er en endeløs mængde af personer (hele romanen er skrevet i direkte tale, hvor tavshed er vist som tomme sider). Den anden er en filosofisk synsvinkel på livet, der anskues som en endeløs kø
