    From his teenage years in provincial Russia to his premature death in 1904, Anton Chekhov wrote thousands of letters to a wide range of correspondents. This new selection tells Chekhov's story as a man and a writer through affectionate bulletins to his family, insightful discussions of literature with publishers and theatre directors, and tender love letters to his actress wife. Evoking landscapes, people and his daily life, the letters offer revealing glimpses into Chekhov's preoccupations - the onset of tuberculosis, his dual careers as doctor and writer, and his ambivalence about his growing reputation as Russia's foremost playwright and author. This volume takes us inside the mind of one of the world's great writers, and the character that emerges from these pages is resilient, generous, charming and life enhancing.

  • The Methuen Drama Book of Naturalist Plays: A Doll's House, Miss Julie, The Weavers, Mrs Warren's Profession, Three Sisters, Strife (Play Anthologies)

    The Methuen Drama Book of Naturalist Plays is a collection of landmark dramatic works from the modern period that will prove invaluable to students and general readers alike.Emerging in the late nineteenth century, Naturalism in the theatre sought to strip away artifice and hold a mirror up to the world. This compendium offers six of the most commonly studied and performed Naturalist plays from the European repertoire, dating from 1879-1909. It includes:-Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House which in its depiction of Nora Helmer exploded contemporary gender conventions;-Miss Julie, August Strindberg's classic exploration of class mobility and sexual desire played out as a Darwinist struggle;-The Weavers, Gerhart Hauptmann's quintessential Marxist drama documenting a Silesian weavers' revolt;-Bernard Shaw's Mrs Warren's Profession which in addressing capitalism's exploitation of women was so ahead of its time that it did not receive a public production for over a quarter of a century;-Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters, often regarded as the writer's greatest play and one that commanded a new mode of acting, and-John Galsworthy's Strife which appraises class conflict amid an economic dispute.The six plays perfectly illustrate the formal diversity and the major philosophical, political and theatrical preoccupations of the movement. An introduction by Dr Chris Megson traces Naturalism's roots, explores its aims and methods, provides an analysis of the selected plays and considers Naturalism's legacy and resonance today.
