The lower depths by Maksim Gorky( Book )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Widely regarded as Gorky's dramatic masterpiece, The Lower Depths reveals the author's unrivaled knowledge of the Russian proletariat. A sleazy boarding house is home to a group of wretched souls who spend their days arguing, playing cards, telling stories and debating the merits of two different views of life: whether it is better to live without illusions on one's own strengths, or to harbor a romanticized view of the world in order to shield oneself from the pain of daily life. Gorky's eye for physical detail, and special talent for breathing life into down-and-out characters on the fringes of society, are brilliantly displayed in this compelling drama

Ivanov; a drama in four acts by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov( Book )

2 editions published in 1924 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Ivanov, Anton Chekhov's first full-length play, Chekhov created a portrait of a man plagued with self-doubt and despair. Considered one of Chekhov's most elusive characters, he seeks more in life than the self-absorption and ennui he sees in his contemporaries. Tormented by falling out of love with his dying Jewish wife, Ivanov, on her death, proposes to the young daughter of a neighbor, but, as the weddng party assembles, a final burst of his habitual indecisiveness has fatal results."--BOOK JACKET

La locandiera by Carlo Goldoni( Book )

1 edition published in 1924 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Mirandolina runs an inn in Florence alone with only the help of her loyal employee Fabricius, and all of her guests are in love with her. The wealthy but only newly aristocratic Count D'Albafiorita and the impoverished but noble Marquis di Forlipopoli vie for her affections while debating the respective value of wealth and nobility (and insulting each other a good deal along the way). The misogynistic Cavalier di Ripafratta scoffs at their shared infatuation and ridicules the idea of love, but will he too fall victim to the beautiful innkeeper's charms? And can any of them win the heart of the independent Mirandolina?
