If only we could know! : an interpretation of Chekhov by V. B Kataev( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book of criticism, Chekhov's foremost Russian interpreter offers to Western readers a remarkably clear and commanding appraisal of the master's work." "Vladimir Kataev concerns himself chiefly with Chekhov's "conception of the world," his angle of vision on reality. It determines his unique treatment of a wide range of diverse themes, motifs, and situations. With ringing authority and critical common sense, Mr. Kataev examines Chekhov's major tales, stories, and plays, pointing out patterns of development in Chekhov's approach to characters and themes, and tracing the roots of Chekhov's ideas as expressed through his plots. One of the special virtues of the book is Mr. Kataev's persuasive discussion of the role that medical training played in Chekhov's approach to writing."--Jacket

Seht es euch doch in Gottes Namen an, besonders wenn er da mit einem steht und spricht - seht es euch von der Seite an: wie das sich präsentiert! Es lässt sich einfach nicht beschreiben: Sammet! Silber! Feuer! Herr mein Heiland und Knecht Gottes, heiliger Wundertäter Nikolai! Warum besitze ich keine so prächtige Pekesche!
