Format: Hardcover
The title is no lie. The book discusses Chekhov's dramatic structure and plays of indirect action, a form he created and mastered. Chekhov spent the seven years between Ivanov, his last direct action play, and the Seagull his first indirect action play building the form. Magarshack shows how he adapted basic greek structure to create a new type of drama. The book is a must for any playwright.
