An Actor Prepares

By Stanislavski, Constantin




An Actor Prepares was first published in 1936 and is the first volume of the translations of Constantin Stanislavski's books on acting, which were published as a trilogy in English, though originally meant to be published as two books in Russia. "An Actor Prepares" was initially meant to be the first half of a volume on the inner preparation of an actor, while the second half (later published in English as "Building a Character") was meant to cover the outside work on the actor.

An Actor Prepares

Constantin Stanislavski

An Actor Prepares by Constantin Stanislavski - This work is the first volume of Stanislavski's trilogy on the art of acting; it explains the art of acting in semi-fiction form. Fusing psychological realism and expressionism, his exploratory exercises teach actors to evoke past emotions that draw out their vulnerability. Stanislavski here introduces such concepts as the "magic if," "emotion memory," the "unbroken line" and many more now famous rehearsal aids. This classic manual is written from the viewpoint of fictional actors taking lessons from a director (based on Stanislavski). Through the student's mistakes, questions, revelations, and struggles, Stanislavski teaches the actor about the stage, truth, and life itself...... Oversized paperback book in good condition. Some wear showing on covers mostly around edges, Spine is tight with no loose pages, Pages are good with some minor dirt staining on closed page edges, corner folds. Over all a good usable copy......
