Excerpt: On an April day of the year 1880 the doorkeeper Audrey came into my private room and told me in a mysterious whisper that a gentleman had come to the editorial office and demanded insistently to see the editor. He appears to be a chinovnik, Andrey added. He has a cockade... Ask him to come another time, I said, I am busy today. Tell him the editor only receives on Saturdays. He was here the day before yesterday and asked for you. He says his business is urgent. He begs, almost with tears in his eyes, to see you. He says he is not free on Saturday... Will you receive him? (The Shooting Party, 1884) The Shooting Party is a triangular love story-cum-murder mystery novel and Chekhovs only novel. Not many people are aware of the fact that before becoming the celebrated short story writer and playwright he tried his hands at novel writing. One can witness the birth of Chekhovs unique style (although in its infancy) for which he would be later remembered for. Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) was a Russian physician, dramaturge and author who is often referred to as one of the seminal figures in the birth of early modernism in the theatre. He made no apologies for the difficulties he posed to the readers, insisting that the role of an artist was to ask questions, not to answer them.

Family Networks and the Russian Revolutionary M...
95,19 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book explores the role played by families in the Russian revolutionary movement and the first decades of the Soviet regime. While revolutionaries were expected to sever all family ties or at the very least put political concerns before personal ones, in practice this was rarely achieved. In the underground, revolutionaries of all stripes, from populists to social-democrats, relied on siblings, spouses, children and parents to help them conduct party tasks, with the appearance of domesticity regularly thwarting police interference. Family networks were also vital when the worst happened and revolutionaries were imprisoned or exiled. After the revolution, these family networks continued to function in the building of the new Soviet regime and amongst the socialist opponents who tried to resist the Bolsheviks. As the Party persecuted its socialist enemies and eventually turned on threats perceived within its ranks, it deliberately included the spouses and relatives of its opponents in an attempt to destroy family networks for good. Katy Turton is a historian of the Russian revolutionary movement, with a particular interest in the role of women. She has worked as a lecturer at the University of York, UK, and Queens University, Belfast, Ireland, and is the author of Forgotten Lives: The Role of Lenins Sisters in the Russian Revolutionary Movement .

0,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This carefully crafted ebook: The Collected Plays of Anton Chekhov is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Excerpt: In each one of us there are too many springs, too many wheels and cogs for us to judge each other by first impressions or by two or three external indications. Ivanoff, Act 3 (1887) Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860 -1904) was a Russian physician, dramaturge and author who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short stories in history. Along with Henrik Ibsen and August Strindberg, Chekhov is often referred to as one of the three seminal figures in the birth of early modernism in the theatre. Chekhov had at first written stories only for financial gain, but as his artistic ambition grew, he made formal innovations which have influenced the evolution of the modern short story. He made no apologies for the difficulties this posed to readers, insisting that the role of an artist was to ask questions, not to answer them. Contents: Introduction: Biography of Anton Chekhov Plays: On the High Road Swan Song Ivanoff The Anniversary The Proposal The Wedding The Bear The Seagull A Reluctant Hero Uncle Vanya The Three Sisters The Cherry Orchard
