Summary

The Collected Plays of Anton Chekhov (12 Works in One Edition) is a masterpiece that encompasses some of the most renowned plays in the canon of world drama. Chekhov's writing style captivates readers with its realistic portrayals of human emotions and relationships, often exploring themes of love, loss, and societal norms. The plays are set against the backdrop of 19th-century Russia, offering a glimpse into the social and cultural context of the time. Chekhov's use of dialogue and character development is unparalleled, making this collection a must-read for any lover of classic literature. Anton Chekhov, a Russian playwright and short story writer, drew inspiration for his works from his own experiences as a physician in rural Russia. His keen observations of human nature and his ability to capture the complexities of everyday life have solidified his place as one of the greatest writers of his time. Chekhov's profound insights into the human psyche shine through in each of the plays included in this collection. I highly recommend The Collected Plays of Anton Chekhov to readers who appreciate thought-provoking and emotionally resonant literature. Chekhov's unparalleled storytelling and rich character development will leave a lasting impact on anyone who delves into this remarkable collection.

    LONGLISTED FOR THE 2023 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FOR POETRY"Where are you from . . . ? No—where are you from from?" It's a question every Asian American gets asked as part of an incessant chorus saying you'll never belong here, you're a perpetual foreigner, you'll always be seen as an alien, an object, or a threat.Monica Youn's From From brilliantly evokes the conflicted consciousness of deracination. If you have no core of "authenticity," no experience of your so-called homeland, how do you piece together an Asian American identity out of Westerners' ideas about Asians? Your sense of yourself is part stereotype, part aspiration, part guilt. In this dazzling collection, one sequence deconstructs the sounds and letters of the word "deracinations" to create a sonic landscape of micro- and macroaggressions, assimilation, and self-doubt. A kaleidoscopic personal essay explores the racial positioning of Asian Americans and the epidemic of anti-Asian hate. Several poems titled "Study of Two Figures" anatomize and dissect the Asian other: Midas the striving, nouveau-riche father; Dr. Seuss and the imaginary daughter Chrysanthemum-Pearl he invented while authoring his anti-Japanese propaganda campaign; Pasiphaë, mother of the minotaur, and Sado, the eighteenth-century Korean prince, both condemned to containers allegorical and actual.

    ‘If music be the food of love play on.’  The evocative words of William Shakespeare not only capture the addictive quality of love but also of music.  Poets have an ability with their words and phrases to provide a rhythm, an atmosphere.  When this is allied to their musings on music we are captivated.
