Emphasising his continued relevance, humour and mastery of the tragicomic, the author provides an insightful assessment of Chekhov's life and work. The text analyses many Chekhov favourites including The Seagull, Uncle Vanya and The Cherry Orchard in addition to Chekhov's vaudevilles and one-act plays, making reference to Chekhov's stories and using both traditional criticism and more recent theoretical and cultural standpoints including cultural materialism, philosophy, and gender studies"--Publisher's description."@en ;
