Descriptions du produit

The works of Russia's greatest playwright, Anton Chekhov, masterfully blend comedy and pathos, creating a richness of texture and characterization rarely seen since Shakespeare. With "Three Sisters" (1901), his portrait of the Prozorov family's elusive dream of returning from the provinces to an idealized Moscow, he captured a restlessness and yearning which remain enduringly modern. In Paul Schmidt's version - the basis for the Wooster Group's acclaimed adaptation "Brace Up!" - we can perceive, for the first time in English, a refreshingly clear and colloquial style we instinctively know as Chekhov's own. ANTON CHEKHOV (1860-1904) led a double life as a practicing physician and a celebrated author of short stories and plays. The Moscow Art Theater's stagings of "The Seagull," "Uncle Vanya," "The Cherry Orchard" and "Three Sisters" - under the direction of Konstantin Stanislavsky - secured Chekhov's reputation as a world-class dramatist. PAUL SCHMIDT edited "Meyerhold at Work" and has translated writings by Rimbaud, Khlebnikov, Gogol, Kaiser, Mayakovsky and Genet. Recipient of an NEA fellowship and of a doctorate in Russian from Harvard University, his translations, adaptations and original plays have been performed across the country.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fable for the modern reader 15 janvier 2001
Par Daisy chain - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Checkov was a master of composing life's largest problems into beautiful language and ordinary situations which the entire world could understand. Granted he wrote them a long time ago but the underlying situation exists everywhere today. Here are three sisters completely unable to move on with their lives. They are unhappy, they are desperate for a change of scene, they are forced to give up anyone they love to someone else but yet they remain glued to the exact place where all of this occurs. Olga has passed her prime, Masha loves someone other than her husband, and Irina has no idea what could possibly make her happy and all they do is talk about change, but never do anything active. And in the end it all comes full circle and we as an audience, a reader, need to decide how to not fall into such a life rut, to learn by their actions as we do from Aesop's fables. This play is just written a great deal better, with a little more comedy and tugging at the heartstrings.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Life is mostly disappointment 20 août 2006
Par Shalom Freedman - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The 'Three Sisters' is another Chekhov depiction of life's pains, disappointments, hopes , illusions and moments of beauty. It is once again as in the 'Seagull' life in the provinces which is a central villain depriving the heroines of what they believe would be a fuller more realized life in the city. Each one of the sisters does not come to the Love and realization in life that they dreamed. Olga the schoolteacher ends up as the mistress of her school, but this is not her heart's desire. Masha longs for a richer kind of love with one wiser than the husband she has outgrown .Irina dreams of an escape she can never make. Their brother Andrei who marries the peasant woman Natalya and has two children with her , sees her take over his life and drive out the sisters from the ancestral home.

The characters as is usually the case with Chekhov are not one- dimensional but are complex mixtures .Though the play ends in the seeming failure of all , a speech of sister Olga suggests that 'hopelessness' is not the last word for Chekhov, but dream and delusion maintain us to the end.

"We shall be forgotten, our faces will be forgotten, our voices, and how many there were of us; but our sufferings will pass into joy for those who will live after us, happiness and peace will be established upon earth, and they will remember kindly and bless those who have lived before. Oh, dear sisters, our life is not ended yet. We shall live! The music is so happy, so joyful, and it seems as though in a little while we shall know what we are living for, why we are suffering... If we only knew--if we only knew!"
