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. .
