Uncle Vanya by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 86 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 The reworking of the script aims at accessibility, replacing the "outdated colloquialisms" and "brittle prose" of earlier translations

4 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Gayev family estate is hopelessly in debt: urged to cut down their beautiful cherry orchard and sell the land for holiday cottages, they struggle to act decisively
Vladimir Mayakovsky : selected poems by Vladimir Mayakovsky ( Book )
3 editions published in 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"James McGavran's new translation of Vladimir Mayakovsky's poetry is the first to fully capture the Futurist and Soviet agitprop artist's voice. Because of his work as a propagandist for the Soviet regime, and because of his posthumous enshrinement by Stalin as "the best and most talented poet of our Soviet epoch," Mayakovsky has most often been interpreted--and translated--within a political context. McGavran's translations reveal a more nuanced poet who possessed a passion for word creation and linguistic manipulation. Mayakovsky's bombastic metaphors and formal élan shine through in these translations, and McGavran's commentary provides vital information on Mayakovsky, illuminating the poet's many references to the Russian literary canon, his contemporaries in art and culture, and Soviet figures and policies."--Publisher's website
