I ordered a used one, but it wasn't exactly the same. There are differences in the translation

tile; What I think of Czekhov's plays

Although written a hundred years ago, Czekhov's plays have still more to say about real life even now than many other famous works of the same period I like the author's approach to ordinary but endearing characters. I would recommend it not only to the readers of plays but also to readers of novels and short stories. Czekhov was also a short story writer.

Michael Frayn's translastion of Checkov is lively, well presented, and holds on to the comic element of his characters - often lost in the stuffy attitude of the cannon of literature. Uncle Vanya, in this edition is especially good. As you read through the lines of the housekeeper also think Father Ted's Mrs. Doyle. Chekov created this character long before TV was even a concept. Good stuff. By this edition.

Book arrived very quickly in brand new condition with only a minute tear on the cover. I needed the script to mark for a production -- it has stood up well and not fallen apart as can happen! Just wish learning it was as easy and hassle free as ordering it!!
Would rate this seller as A+++++ and would certainly both use again and recommend.
