An actor prepares by Konstantin Stanislavsky( Book )

22 editions published between 1958 and 2015 in French and Undetermined and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is the first volume of Stanislavski's trilogy on the art of acting; it explains the art of acting in semi-fiction form. Fusing psychological realism and expressionism, his exploratory exercises teach actors to evoke past emotions that draw out their vulnerability. Stanislavski here introduces such concepts as the "magic if," "emotion memory," the "unbroken line" and many more now famous rehearsal aids. This classic manual is written from the viewpoint of fictional actors taking lessons from a director (based on Stanislavski). Through the student's mistakes, questions, revelations, and struggles, Stanislavski teaches the actor about the stage, truth, and life itself

Once in Europa by John Berger( Book )

4 editions published between 1990 and 1996 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A luminous collection of interwoven stories, Once in Europa is a portrait of two worlds-a small Alpine village bound to the earth and by tradition, and the restless, future-driven culture that will invade it-at their moment of collision. The instrument of entrapment is love: the passion of a willful shepard for a shrewd bourgeois housewife; of a vital young woman for a dashing Russian who has come to work in the local factory; of a steadfast son for his aged mother. Lives are lost and hearts are broken, and, always, love is a transcending form of grace. In Once in Europa, it speaks as plainly and as movingly as a remembered language, creating a work of astonishing tenderness
