Most widely held works by Konstantin Stanislavsky
An actor prepares by Konstantin Stanislavsky( Book )
208 editions published between 1936 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 4,001 libraries worldwide
This work is the first volume of Stanislavski's trilogy on the art of acting. 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 )
105 editions published between 1949 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,810 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 )
77 editions published between 1961 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,283 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 )
86 editions published between 1950 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,717 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'
Stanislavski's legacy : a collection of comments on a variety of aspects of an actor's art and life by Konstantin Stanislavsky( Book )
56 editions published between 1950 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,290 libraries worldwide
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
An actor's handbook : an alphabetical arrangement of concise statements on aspects of acting by Konstantin Stanislavsky( Book )
36 editions published between 1963 and 2004 in English and Multiple languages and held by 1,219 libraries worldwide
This is the classic lexicon of Stanislavski's most important concepts, all in the master's own words. Upon its publication in 1963, An Actor's Handbook quickly established itself as an essential guide for actors and directors. Culling key passages from Stanislavski's vast output, this book covers more than one hundred and fifty key concepts, among them "Improvisation," "External Technique," "Magic If," "Imaginary Objects," "Discipline," "What Is My System?" and "Stage Fright." This new, attractively packaged edition will be an essential book for any performer
An actor's work : a student's diary by Konstantin Stanislavsky( Book )
22 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and held by 1,111 libraries worldwide
"Stanislavski's 'system' has dominated actor-training in the West since his writings were first translated into English in the 1920s and 30s. His systematic attempt to outline a psycho-physical technique for acting single-handedly revolutionised standards of acting in the theatre." "Jean Benedetti has succeeded in translating Stanislavski's huge manual into a lively, fascinating and accurate text in English. He has remained faithful to the author's original intentions, putting the two books previously known as An Actor Prepares and Building A Character back together into one volume, and in a colloquial and readable style for today's actors."--Jacket

The magic if; Stanislavski for children by Elizabeth Y Kelly( Book )
5 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 502 libraries worldwide
The author applies the Stanislavski theories on acting to the training of children in dramatics. She bases the book on what she terms the "magic question" that can awaken a child's imagination: "What would I do if . . .?" The opening chapters are designed to assist the student in developing an awareness of his senses for the purpose of interpreting a character to an audience and also in gaining a new awareness of himself and his surroundings. Other chapters deal with concentration, memory, use of emotional reactions, communication to an audience, bodily action, and interpersonal relationships with other performers. At the end of the book there is a guide for the parent or teacher about implementing the exercises and practice projects suggested for the child. (Rn)
