The Drama Instructor’s sister-site, Theatre Hyperlinks, has not too long ago printed all of Henrik Ibsen’s and Anton Chekhov’s performs out there on the Web in PDF.
For years now, a lot of the works of Ibsen and Chekhov have been out there on-line, the bulk being housed at Challenge Gutenberg. As this largely real looking and naturalistic physique of labor was almost all printed within the latter half of the nineteenth century, the performs have been within the public area for a while.
Nonetheless, their formatting was awkward, the font was outdated and none of those performs had been out there in PDF, essentially the most handy format for downloading and portability between gadgets, notably for college kids and lecturers of theatre.
Whereas there are a small variety of these works unavailable digitally, the overwhelming majority exist together with A Doll’s Home, The Sea-Gull, The Cherry Orchard, Hedda Gabler, The Three Sisters and Uncle Vanya. Why pay for these texts to make use of within the classroom if they’re legally out there without spending a dime?
Right here ends my two-decade-old frustration with these performs on-line. I’ve transformed all of them to downloadable PDFs with easy-to-read font and web page numbers. Hopefully Ibsen performs PDF and Chekhov performs PDF will show helpful to lecturers and college students of Drama, Theatre, English Literature and extra. Get pleasure from!
