Anton Chekhov trans Michael Frayn Price: $14.95

As an internationally acclaimed playwright who is also proficient in Russian, Michael Frayn is ideally placed to offer us a wholly accurate yet modern and playable translation of Chekhov's classic play

For this edition he has also provided a full introduction and a chronology of Chekhov's life and works

Michael Frayn's "ambition in translating the piece was to recreate for an English audience the naturalness and 'glancing eloquence' of the original, and I think he succeeds completely" ~ Spectator

Frayn's translation is " ... full o those little liberties and intimacies of ordinary speech which override grammar and syntax and betray moods of ordinary people and the impulses of the heart" ~ Daily Telegraph
