Chekhov 's ideas and thought's on theatre, in his own words, from his newspaper articles and letters. Brought together here for the first time these precious words provide an invaluable guide to the work of one of the world's greatest dramatists

Chekhov started writing about theatre - in newspaper articles and in his own letters - even before he began writing plays. Later he wrote in detail about these to his wife and leading actress Olga Knipper, and to the two directors of the Moscow Art Theatre, Stanislavski and Nemirovich-Danchenko. Collected here in Stephen Mulrine's vivid translations, these writings reveal Chekhov's many and varied insights into the way theatre works - and how best to realise his own intentions as a theatre writer.
