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 : Anniversary Ediition of June 1948

Constantin Stanislavski; (Elizabeth Reynolds Hapgood, Translator); John Gielgud, Introduction)

New York, NY: Theatre Arts Books: Robert M. MacGregor, 1948. Text/Trace smudge to pg. 5 of Foreword, else NEW & Bright. Light gray linen boards/NF w/light edge rubs. DJ/None. Gift inscription to fEP dated 1950. Leading theatre director and actor Konstantin Sergeievich Stanislavski (1863 - 1938), co-founder of the Moscow Art Theatre, is known for his 'system' of actor training, preparation, and rehearsal technique. An Actor Prepares is the first of Konstantin Stanislavski's books on acting, and was first published as a single volume in English. The book, most creatively, follows that of a journal --- a dairy of a fictional student named Kostya records his first, full year of training in Stanislavski's system. Neither Kostya nor his fellow students have had much experience in acting. Their instructor, Tortsov, is not an advocate the 'system'. Via this ingenious autobiographical format, Stanislavski presents his philosophy. Indeed, he known to say his 'system' is not a particular method, but a systematic, analytical approach towards mastering the craft of acting along with stimulating the actor's individual creativeness and imagination, which the book does. 295 pgs in 14 chapters; it begins with the first class meeting, and ends with the class reflecting on their first gathering. . First Edition, 9th Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 1948 Anniversary Edition.

"Stanislavski's ‘system’ focused on the development of artistic truth onstage by teaching actors to "live the part" during performance. Despite being primarily known in The United States for Realism, Stanislavski developed the system to be applied to all forms of theater, directing and producing melodrama, vaudeville, opera, etc. In order to create an ensemble of actors all working together as an artistic unit, he began organizing a series of studios in which young actors were trained in his system. At the First Studio of MAT, actors were instructed to use their own memories in order to naturally express emotions. Stanislavski soon observed that some of the actors using or abusing Emotional Memory were given to hysteria. Although he never disavowed Emotional Memory as an essential tool in the actor's kit, he began searching for less draining ways of accessing emotion, eventually emphasizing the actor's use of imagination and belief in the given circumstances of the text rather than her/his private and often painful memories."
