Summary Synopsis: Out of the large body of materials articles, speeches, notes and memoirs left behind by Stanislavski at the time of his death in 1938, Elizabeth Hapgood, his friend and translator, chose items which concentrate on the essence of his work. The result is a volume which supplements the other books he wrote, and re-emphasizes, sometimes in condensed and particularly vivid form, his views about acting, the theatre and life.
