Item description for A Tragic Man Despite Himself: The Complete Short Plays of Anton Chekhov (2 volumes) (Green Integer) by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov & George Malko...

Well known throughout the world for his great late 19th and early 20th century plays, Uncle Vanya, The Sea Gull, The Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard, Chekhov also wrote numerous short plays. In this volume, George Malko has translated nineteen of Chekhov's short dramatic writings, dating from 1883 to 1902. As Malko notes, this gathering reveals that despite a life of tragedy, pain and disappointments, Chekhov believed in the comic vision of experience.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Tragic Man Despite Himself: The Complete Short Plays of Anton Chekhov (2 volumes) (Green Integer)?

A Tragic Man Despite Himself  Mar 25, 2007
First of all, it's in one volume as I received it, but everything is in there, so just a quibble with the "2 volume" desciption. The book itself, because it has all of Chekhov's short plays in one place, is indispensible for anyone interested in the Chekhov oeuvre. The translations are . . . Well, to paraphrase another translator, Jan Tuwim: in translating, one can translate the skin - or the heart. "Heart" translations may be guilty of inaccuracy. These translations are very accurate, but only skin-deep.
