Anton Chekhov plays tend to follow very similar themes: the end of the old aristocracy, the rising of the new bourgeoisie, and the letting go of old ways and expectations. If you like plays where old families must bid a melancholy farewell to the estate their family has owned for generations, Chekhov is your guy. One play in particular: The Seagull, stands out from all the rest

Farrar, straus and company. When I was young we used to play a game called what-famous- r-with? and a lot of our choices seem surprising to me now, though we stuck pretty close to serious writers as a rule and had sense enough to limit our visiting time to the dinner table. Chekhov was a pleasant man, witty and wise and tolerant and kind, with nothing wishywashy in his kindness nor self righteous in his tolerance, and his wit was not ill-humored.

  • A great read for those all Chekhov fans, new and old. Paul Schmidt's sensitive, artful translation is superior to all others. He brings to life Chekhov's intelligence and surprising wit, without losing the true meaning of the original text. If you've never before read Cheknov, start with this volume. You won't regret it.

  • Wonderful, wonderful work! Such a joy to read through Chekhov's classics, and also with such elegance of translation that Paul Schmidt has showcased. I would highly recommend this to anyone researching Chekhov, and definitely to any actor in college looking to learn more about the Greats! Quick shipping, and the book is in magnificent condition. Couldn't be more pleased with this product!

  • sometimes hard to to understand due to russian culture and stream of consciousness technique used extensively.but some gems in it. and v funny too."you with the large face, do you not remember me?" "that cabbage stalk!that stuffed sausage!the wizen-faced frump!" "I'd rather sit on a barrel of gunpowder than talk to a woman"

  • Funny and deep. The author had a good understanding of human psychology likely because he was a physician before he moved to writing.

  • Read these in college and just wanted to re-read. They are classics

  • I "purchased" this title from Amazon (Kindle) for free. I wanted to revisit a classic text that I had not seen since college. The Kindle edition is eminently readable and Anton Chekhov's plays are better the second time around.

  • I really love this book as I was reading the book my childhood kind of went by one more time all the good memories when all we had was books and of course how animated our imagination was then and now.

    A wonderful and a true classic..

  • Nice easy reading translation; I'm not an academic, just a regular guy, and this reads nicely.
