"'A small jewel of a book, a knowleageable introduction to both
Stanislavski's personal development and to the content and range of his
writings' "Theatre Journal
"'...shows the System to be a practical process - drama school students and actors will be grateful for it'" Times Eductational Supplement
"'A carefully documented study of peak interest and value to every serious student of acting theory'" Choice
The Stanislavski 'system' is still the only comprehensive method of
actor training we possess. His theories can be hard to grasp and many
academic books are impenetrable on the subject. This is a concise book
for students that presents a readable introduction to the life and work
of Stanislavski. It shows the slow growth of the 'system', from its
roots in the tradition of Russian realism, to the various phases it
went through until the final emergence of the Method of Physical Action
in the years before his death. It also provides a short account of the
writing, publication and translation of Stanislavski's books on acting.
In this edition, Jean Benedetti makes several important updates in
the light of new material and new translations becoming available.
