Riassunto: This book paints a vivid portrait of Anton Chekhov -- a Russian writer whose elusive personality and richly detailed plays have left an indelible imprint upon the world's theatre. Every page reveals the joys and difficulties of his short life, his comic sensibility, deep compassion, and often puzzling use of dramatic style and genre. Carnicke demystifies Chekhov's plays -- forged from his literary innovations, avid theatergoing, love of vaudeville, and loathing of melodrama. She interweaves biographical and cultural information with insightful case studies and close analysis to leave her reader with a full and fresh perspective on an artist who is as foundational to theatrical traditions as are Shakespeare and Stanislavsky.

About the Author: Sharon Marie Carnicke (PhD Columbia University) is Professor of Theatre and Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of Southern California. Her translations of Chekhov's plays have been produced by theatres nationwide to public acclaim, and were published as Chekhov: 4 Plays and 3 Jokes, which was a finalist for the 2010 National Translation Award (the American Literary Translators Association). Her groundbreaking book, Stanislavsky in Focus, is now in its second edition. Her other publications include The Theatrical Instinct, a study of the avant-garde director Nikolai Evreinov, and Reframing Screen Performance, coauthored with Cynthia Baron.

Descrizione libro Academic Studies Press, United States, 2013. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Theatres world-wide embrace Chekhov s handful of plays with a fervour second only to Shakespeare s. Whatever their native language or culture, audiences often see themselves in his Russian characters, making Chekhov seem an author who easily transcends his own culture and time. Nonetheless, students, actors, and audiences alike are often initially puzzled by Chekhov s dramatic texts. Are they comic or tragic, ironic or sincere, starkly familiar or willfully elusive? How can his often seemingly irrelevant dialogue create dynamic performances? In his stories and plays alike, Chekhov challenges his readers to diagnose his characters desires, opinions, heartaches and joys in the same way that doctors diagnose illness by attending closely to apparently trivial details. In the plays where narrative voice is absent and characters speak for themselves reading under a microscope becomes all the more necessary. The expert attention that Carnicke pays to the performative dimensions of Chekhov s plays makes her book unique among the published guides to Chekhov s works.
