    Oh, yes I used to be an inspiring personality who never inspired anybody Vanya Act IRandom fact Vanya translates to Joe in English The literal title of Chekhov s play in English is Uncle Joe.This review is both on Chekhov s play, and David Mamet s translation Uncle Vanya is often relegated to the weakest of Chekhov s four major plays That is unfortunate since it is an amazing work I will admit, I m not a fan of Mamet s work, but in his Chekhov translations, Mamet s writing is amazing InOh, yes I used to be an inspiring personality who never inspired anybody Vanya Act IRandom fact Vanya translates to Joe in English The literal title of Chekhov s play in English is Uncle Joe.This review is both on Chekhov s play, and David Mamet s translation Uncle Vanya is often relegated to the weakest of Chekhov s four major plays That is unfortunate since it is an amazing work I will admit, I m not a fan of Mamet s work, but in his Chekhov translations, Mamet s writing is amazing In Mamet s hands, Chekhov become not the stuffy lifeless playwright of scholars and academia, but living, breathing characters filled with passion and emotions Here Chekhov s characters become sexual and passionate madeof earth than air Mamet iscontrolled here then he is on his own plays This translation is closer to what Chekhov intended than most I have ever read These people are modern, just as they were modern in Chekhov s original work in Chekhov s time.Chekhov and Mamet both write characters that are loaded with life Both write about contemporary, life in its simultaneous simplicity and complexity I highly recommend Mamet s translation of Uncle Vanya He has written a beautiful translation

    Another great Anton Chekhov play I m not really sure what it is I love about Chekhov, though if I had to narrow it down I might attribute that love to some of hispitiable characters think Lubov Andreyevna, for example, or Treplev from The Seagull Or I might say that there s a kind of understatedness to his plots that bring his plays to life in a way that is often unmatched There are recurring themes, also, that unify his four major works The characters in Uncle Vanya discuss at length Another great Anton Chekhov play I m not really sure what it is I love about Chekhov, though if I had to narrow it down I might attribute that love to some of hispitiable characters think Lubov Andreyevna, for example, or Treplev from The Seagull Or I might say that there s a kind of understatedness to his plots that bring his plays to life in a way that is often unmatched There are recurring themes, also, that unify his four major works The characters in Uncle Vanya discuss at length the destructive nature of idleness, as the sisters do in Three Sisters Chekhov was all about dedicating one s life to his or her work, making oneself useful to some degree There s also a recurring theme of accepting one s station in life and carrying on in the face of adversity The show must go on it is the only way we can survive.I still think The Cherry Orchard is his best work, though this one may come in at a close second Here is my list of Chekhov plays, ranked 1 The Cherry Orchard2 Uncle Vanya3 The Seagull4 Three SistersWhat do you think

    Uncle Vanya was completed by Russian playwright, author and doctor Anton Chekhov in 1897 and first produced in Moscow in 1899 This fairly complicated interaction between a group of people, secluded in a country estate is filled with dramatic irony and with overwhelming themes of introspection, ennui and dashed hopes To say it is bleak would be like saying Conan O Brien can be a snarky smart ass.But this is Russian drama, so some darkness can be expected, even anticipated I wonder if long, col Uncle Vanya was completed by Russian playwright, author and doctor Anton Chekhov in 1897 and first produced in Moscow in 1899 This fairly complicated interaction between a group of people, secluded in a country estate is filled with dramatic irony and with overwhelming themes of introspection, ennui and dashed hopes To say it is bleak would be like saying Conan O Brien can be a snarky smart ass.But this is Russian drama, so some darkness can be expected, even anticipated I wonder if long, cold winter nights of cabin fever will just get to you.An elitist professor and his much younger trophy wife have returned to visit the country estate that keeps him up Residing there and maintaining the estate is his daughter from his deceased first wife and his former brother in law, along with a country doctor and a handful of other folks The professor is self centered and petulant, his wife is disillusioned, Uncle Vanya is tiresome but rightfully indignant and his niece Sonya is disconsolate from rejections both real and imagined.Essentially, everyone is unhappy and melancholy and Chekhov has created an atmosphere of mercurial unease and unrest a black comedy with frayed edges.Actually, about half way through, it occurred to me that this read like a Woody Allen film and I wondered if he had ever directed Uncle Vanya I ll be damned if he had in fact made a modernized adaptation, the 1987 film September, starring Mia Farrow and Elaine Stritch I pulled up Netflix and watched, noting that Allen had made some distinct changes, altered the gender and relational complexities some, but had maintained the overall sense of disquietude.Boil some potatoes, have ready a tall bottle of Stolichnaya and enjoy

About the Author: Anton Chekhov

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov Russian was born in the small seaport of Taganrog, southern Russia, the son of a grocer Chekhov s grandfather was a serf, who had bought his own freedom and that of his three sons in 1841 He also taught himself to read and write Yevgenia Morozova, Chekhov s mother, was the daughter of a cloth merchant When I think back on my childhood, Chekhov recalled, it all seems quite gloomy to me His early years were shadowed by his father s tyranny, religious fanaticism, and long nights in the store, which was open from five in the morning till midnight He attended a school for Greek boys in Taganrog 1867 68 and Taganrog grammar school 1868 79 The family was forced to move to Moscow following his father s bankruptcy At the age of 16, Chekhov became independent and remained for some time alone in his native town, supporting himself through private tutoring.In 1879 Chekhov entered the Moscow University Medical School While in the school, he began to publish hundreds of comic short stories to support himself and his mother, sisters and brothers His publisher at this period was Nicholas Leikin, owner of the St Petersburg journal Oskolki splinters His subjects were silly social situations, marital problems, farcical encounters between husbands, wives, mistresses, and lovers, whims of young women, of whom Chekhov had not much knowledge the author was was shy with women even after his marriage His works appeared in St Petersburg daily papers, Peterburskaia gazeta from 1885, and Novoe vremia from 1886.Chekhov s first novel, Nenunzhaya pobeda 1882 , set in Hungary, parodied the novels of the popular Hungarian writer M r J kai As a politician J kai was also mocked for his ideological optimism By 1886 Chekhov had gained a wide fame as a writer His second full length novel, The Shooting Party, was translated into English in 1926 Agatha Christie used its characters and atmosphere in her mystery novel The Murder of Roger Ackroyd 1926.Chekhov graduated in 1884, and practiced medicine until 1892 In 1886 Chekhov met H.S Suvorin, who invited him to become a regular contributor for the St Petersburg daily Novoe vremya His friendship with Suvorin ended in 1898 because of his objections to the anti Dreyfus campaingn conducted by paper But during these years Chechov developed his concept of the dispassionate, non judgemental author He outlined his program in a letter to his brother Aleksandr 1 Absence of lengthy verbiage of political social economic nature 2 total objectivity 3 truthful descriptions of persons and objects 4 extreme brevity 5 audacity and originality flee the stereotype 6 compassion Chekhov s first book of stories 1886 was a success, and gradually he became a full time writer The author s refusal to join the ranks of social critics arose the wrath of liberal and radical intellitentsia and he was criticized for dealing with serious social and moral questions, but avoiding giving answers However, he was defended by such leading writers as Leo Tolstoy and Nikolai Leskov I m not a liberal, or a conservative, or a gradualist, or a monk, or an indifferentist I should like to be a free artist and that s all Chekhov said in 1888.The failure of his play The Wood Demon 1889 and problems with his novel made Chekhov to withdraw from literature for a period In 1890 he travelled across Siberia to remote prison island, Sakhalin There he conducted a detailed census of some 10,000 convicts and settlers condemned to live their lives on that harsh island Chekhov hoped to use the results of his research for his doctoral dissertation It is probable that hard conditions on the island also weakened his own physical condition From this journey was born his famous travel book T
