About the Author
Constantin Stanislavski (1863-1938) was a Russian director who sought 'inner realism' by insisting that his actors find the truth within themselves and 'become' the characters they portrayed. His work brought international fame to the Moscow Art Theatre, which he had co-founded with Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko in 1897. During his early years at the Moscow Art Theatre, he directed the first productions of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya (1899), Three Sisters (1901) and The Cherry Orchard (1904) as well as a series of celebrated versions of Shakespeare. Stanislavski toured America with the company in 1923. After World War II, the US edition of Stanislavski's treatise An Actor Prepares (1926) became a bible of the Method school of acting.

One of three books written by Stanislavski that, together, form the basis of the greatest set of acting techniques ever devised.
Thorough, thought-provoking, and well-crafted, Stanislavski is the patron saint of modern acting. This is Method. Outside of these three books everything is extrapolation or interpretation.
The pictured edition is not at all the most beautiful or inviting, but its all about the text and what you put into the study of that work. Stanislavski in a nutshell...you put in the time, do the work...you get genuine result. Thoroughly recommended.
