Chekhov and the Birth of the Modern Theater

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

In addition to Chekhov’s four full-length plays, we will read closely, discuss and analyze representative works by the major European creators of the Modern Theater - Ibsen, Strindberg, Brecht, Pirandello, Beckett, Stoppard and others. Our discussions will be informed by secondary readings in the history of the theater from Realism and Naturalism to Symbolism, Agit-theater and the Theater of the Absurd. Over the course of the semester, we will observe the creation and development of recognizably modern language and sensibility on the stage.
