Stanislavski’s ‘system’ has ruled actor-training within the West on account that his writings have been first translated into English within the Nineteen Twenties and 30s. His systematic try and define a psycho-physical approach for performing single-handedly revolutionized criteria of appearing within the theatre.
Until now, readers and scholars have needed to cope with faulty, deceptive and difficult-to-read English-language models. many of the mistranslations have ended in profound distortions within the means his process has been interpreted and taught. eventually, Jean Benedetti has succeeded in translating Stanislavski’s large guide right into a full of life, interesting and exact textual content in English. He has remained trustworthy to the author's unique intentions, placing the 2 books formerly often called An Actor Prepares and Building A Character again jointly into one quantity, and in a colloquial and readable type for state-of-the-art actors.
The result's an immense contribution to the theatre, and a carrier to 1 of the nice innovators of the 20 th century.
