Ivanov - 3.5 stars
The problem with reading classics after reading tons of contemporary fiction is that it's hard to remember that stories/themes have been done to death by now, but you still have to give props to the original even though it feels like a repeat. It makes you think about what makes a man good or bad, who should be sympathized with, and how easy it is to lose sight of what's important. I liked it, but it was short and choppy. I might have liked it better if I had seen it on stage instead of reading it. ( )

Two Chekhovs : From Farces to Drama ( )
  anatolant | Jul 16, 2008 |
Chekhov's worldwide reputation as a dramatist rests on five great plays: Ivanov, The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters, and The Cherry Orchard. All are presented in this collection, taken from the authoritative Oxford Chekhov, in Ronald Hingley's acclaimed translation. Hingley has also written an introduction specifically for this volume in which he provides a detailed history of Chekhov's involvement in the theatre and an assessment of his accomplishment as a dramatist.
