An actor's work : a student's diary by Konstantin Stanislavsky( Book )
300 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 5,303 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
Building a character by Konstantin Stanislavsky( Book )
89 editions published between 1949 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,640 libraries worldwide
Stanislavski's "System" offers both a means of mastering the craft of acting and of stimulating the actor's individual creativeness and imagination. Generations of actors have been inspired by his ideas -- the "magic if," "emotional memory," the "unbroken line"--And by that hallmark of Stanislavski's work, an unwavering commitment to theatrical truth
Creating a role by Konstantin Stanislavsky( Book )
67 editions published between 1961 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,290 libraries worldwide
This third volume examines the development of a character from the viewpoint of three widely contrasting plays: Griboyedov's Woe from Wit, Shakespeare's Othello, and Gogol's The Inspector General. Building on the first two books, Stanislavski demonstrates how a fully realized character is born in three stages: "studying it; establishing the life of the role; putting it into physical form." Tracing the actor's process from the first reading to production, he explores how to approach roles from inside and outside simultaneously. He shows how to recount the story in actor's terms, how to create an inner life that will give substance to the author's words, and how to search into one's own experiences toconnect with the character's situation. Finally, he speaks of the physical expression of the character in gestures, sounds, intonation, and speech. Throughout, a picture of a real artist at work emerges, sometimes failing, but always seeking truthful answers
Stanislavsky on the art of the stage by Konstantin Stanislavsky( Book )
50 editions published between 1950 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,688 libraries worldwide
From the Introduction: The theory of acting, as evolved by Stanislavsky in his famous 'system', is not based on reasoning, as many of his critics assert, so much as on experience. It is the result of a lifetime devoted to the art of the stage, of years of experiment as actor and producer, and of a feeling of dissatisfaction with what passes for 'success' both among actors and audiences. While certain general principles of acting had been laid down by a number of famous actors and playwrights, these, Stanislavsky found, had never been reduced to a system with the result that teachers of acting have nothing on which to base their teaching, since 'inspiration' on which the theoreticians of the stage put so much stress, cannot be taught, nor can it be expected to materialize itself just when the actor needs it. Neither can producers be relied on to assist the actor in capturing this elusive 'inspiration'. 'Producers, ' Stanislavsky writes, 'explain very cleverly what sort of result they want to get; they are only interested in the final result. They criticize and tell the actor what he should not do, but they do not tell him how to achieve the required result. The producer, ' Stanislavsky adds, 'can do a great deal, but he cannot do everything by any means. For the main thing is in the hands of the actor, who must be helped and instructed first of all'
My life in art by Konstantin Stanislavsky( Book )
123 editions published between 1922 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,415 libraries worldwide
"Stanislavski's autobiography is an inspirational testimony to an artist's imagination and endurance, and still has compelling resonance for today's practitioners. Translator Jean Benedetti brings us, for the first time in English, Stanislavski's autobiography as the author himself wanted it -- from the re-edited 1926 version."--Publisher's description

Synopsis: Out of the large body of materials articles, speeches, notes and memoirs left behind by Stanislavski at the time of his death in 1938, Elizabeth Hapgood, his friend and translator, chose items which concentrate on the essence of his work. The result is a volume which supplements the other books he wrote, and re-emphasizes, sometimes in condensed and particularly vivid form, his views about acting, the theatre and life
