Sintesi dell'editore

This is a story from the In the Ravine and Other Stories collection.

Anton Chekhov, one of the finest masters of what is acknowledged as a difficult genre. There is the richly comic "Oh! The Public" about a hassled ticket inspector, a wry look at morals and manners in "The Chorus Girl", and the melancholic tale of a cab driver in "Misery".

Perhaps the finest of all is the novella "In The Ravine", a minutely observed look at life in a village through the eyes of one family. All the characters come to life with their foibles, their strengths, and their hopes. Kenneth Branagh uses his natural talent for characterisation to bring this village to life.

The other short stories in this collection are: "The Trousseau", "A Story Without a Title", "Children", "Fat and Thin", "The Beggar", "Hush!", "The Orator", and "An Actor's End".

Recensioni editoriali

A large, somewhat simpleminded actor feels something snap in his chest during an argument with a theater manager, and takes to his bed, adamant that he must return to his childhood home. Fellow actors provide various other remedies, including repeated doses of castor oil. Acclaimed actor Kenneth Branagh’s brilliant displays of accent and intonation magically capture and convey the pathos and humor in this serio-comic backstage character portrait by the Russian playwright and author Anton Chekhov. This selection is from the In the Ravine and Other Stories collection of Chekhov’s short works.

"If you want an outstanding reading, in which the narrator's voice brilliantly conveys the speaker's class and the intricate relationships between characters during conversations, you can do no better than to listen to Kenneth Branagh. This great actor mesmerizes as he gasps, chuckles, stutters, and declaims. A must listen." ( AudioFile)
