Five masterful dramatic works from one of the world''s best-loved playwrights. This collection includes The Cherry Orchard,now on Broadwayin a Roundabout Theater Company production at the American Airlines Theater. Directed by Simon Godwin and starring Diane Lane, John Glover and Susannah Flood.   At a time when the Russian theatre was dominated by formulaic melodramas and farces, Chekhov created a new sort of drama that laid bare the everyday lives, loves and yearnings of ordinary people. Ivanov depicts a man stifled by inactivity and lost idealism, and The Seagull contrasts a young man''s selfish romanticism with the stoicism of a woman cruelly abandoned by her lover. With ''the scenes from country life'' of Uncle Vanya, his first fully mature play, Chekhov developed his own unique dramatic world, neither tragedy nor comedy. In Three Sisters the Prozorov sisters endlessly dream of going to Moscow to escape the monotony of provincial life, while his comedy The Cherry Orchard portrays characters futilely clinging to the past as their land is sold from underneath them.In this edition Peter Carson''s moving translations convey Chekhov''s subtle blend of comedy, tragedy and psychological insight, while Richard Gilman''s introduction examines how Chekhov broke with theatrical conventions and discusses each play in detail. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

Anton Chekhov wrote that "narrative is my legal wife and drama a flamboyant, rowdy, impudent, exhausting mistress." At a time when the Russian stage was dominated by farces, formulaic melodramas, and vaudevilles, Chekhov created plays that focused on characters grappling with moral questions. His works baffled his audiences, but his sensitive explorations of love, loss, and time as well as his portrayal of complex characters and ambiguities, revolutionized the theater with an exhilarating new form of drama. This volume includes new translations, full explanatory notes, a chronology, suggestions for further reading, and a glossary, as well as an introduction by eminent Chekhov scholar Richard Gilman. classics,continental european,drama,education and reference,foreign language study and reference,literary,literature and fiction,world literature Foreign Language Study & Reference, Penguin Classics
