Uncle Vanya by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov( Book )

58 editions published between 1922 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

So, what happens in Uncle Vanya? Not much; just life, played out over four acts. There are rich people, and there are people who work for the rich people, whom the rich people don't really care about. There is a gun fired in anger and desperation, but there aren't any bodies to carry off stage. There are men making fools of themselves over women. There are those who accept their fates and wait for their rewards in heaven, and there are others who don't care one way or another. Chekhov's play moves so languidly that, without a vibrant cast, an understanding director, and a lively translation, it stands the chance of passing under the radar of the average audience. The reworking of the script aims at accessibility, replacing the "outdated colloquialisms" and "brittle prose" of earlier translations

The cast of Uncle Vanya is significantly pared back and the ending left less happily resolved

Ivanoff a play by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov( )

26 editions published between 1923 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nikolai Ivanov is a government official concerned with peasant affairs. Chekhov paints him as the quintessentially melancholy Russian from the upper social strata. Ivanov is severely afflicted by internal conflicts - by his loss of appetite for life and the love of his wife. He also battles external pressures from the managing of his estate and his debts. Everything collides in a melodramatic climax. Ivanoff (from Ivan, the commonest of Russian names) was by no means meant to be a hero, but a most ordinary, weak man oppressed by the "immortal commonplaces of life", with his heart and soul aching in the grip of circumstance, one of the many "useless people" of Russia for whose sorrow Chekhov felt such overwhelming pity. He saw nothing in their lives that could not be explained and pardoned, and he returns to his ill-fated, "useless people" again and again, not to preach any doctrine of pessimism, but simply because he thought that the world was the better for a certain fragile beauty of their natures and their touching faith in the ultimate salvation of humanity

"In Ivanov, Anton Chekhov's first full-length play, Chekhov created a portrait of a man plagued with self-doubt and despair. Considered one of Chekhov's most elusive characters, he seeks more in life than the self-absorption and ennui he sees in his contemporaries. Tormented by falling out of love with his dying Jewish wife, Ivanov, on her death, proposes to the young daughter of a neighbor, but, as the weddng party assembles, a final burst of his habitual indecisiveness has fatal results."--BOOK JACKET

The duel by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov( Book )

134 editions published between 1891 and 2012 in 11 languages and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1891, this morality tale pits a scientist, a government worker, his mistress, a deacon, and a physician against one another in a verbal battle of wits and ethics that explodes into a violent contest: the duel. When Laevsky, a lazy youth who works for the government, tires of his dependent mistress, Nadyezhda Fyodorovna, Von Koren, the scientist, delivers a scathing critique of Loevskys egotism, forcing the young man to examine his soul. The Duel is a tale of human weakness, the possibility of forgiveness, and a mans ultimate ability to change his ways. It is classic Chekhov, revealing the multifaceted essence of human nature
