Product Description

Review

If you buy this collection, do it for (Uncle) Vanya, a dazzlingly intellectual rewrite of the Chekhov 1897 work of the less parenthetic name. At once critical and in awe of the Russian dramatist, Barker interrogates the balance between culture and instinct. His characters are confused by the literary symbolism which surrounds them, hearing the crash of the waves yet unable to place the sea. Tantalisingly erudite, these poetic pieces are certainly worth a read. --Buzz Magazine --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
