At a time when the Russian theatre was dominated by formulaic melodramas and farces, Chekhov created a new sort of drama that laid bare the everyday lives, loves and yearnings of ordinary people. This book includes an introduction that examines how Chekhov broke with theatrical conventions and discusses each play in detail.
