On the Art of the Stage, Paperback


Konstantin Stanislavsky's reputation is founded on his theory of acting and its application in practice.

This volume contains his posthumous work The Stysem and Methods of Creative Art, together with an introductory essay by translator David Magarshack, giving a careful exposition and a critical analysis of his 'system'.

Two appendices deal with Stanislavsky's views on stage ethics and melodrama.

A comprehensive guide to Stanislavsky's work.
