Synopsis: When poet Edward Sanders, founder of New York's famous Peace Eye Book Store as well as of the 60's folk-rock group The Fugs, undertook to write a drama based on the life of Anton Pavlovich Chekhov, he started with a poem. Hoping that a poem would engender dialogue and chorus refrains, Sanders' finished product was. . . a poem. Delving into the life of the classic Russian author, Sanders was so taken with his subject that he realized "a verse biography of Chekhov could extend to five or ten thousand pages" and his poem (really a series of short poems about the short life and revolutionary times of the author of "The Seagull") grew and grew.
While Chekhov is slightly shorter than those five to ten thousand pages, it does contain "surprisingly detailed information about the social, political, and intellectual phenomena of Chekhov's Russia" (Booklist) and is written in verse that would do Pushkin proud. A must for any student of Chekhov, Russia or, for that matter, literature.
About the Author: In the 1960s, Edward Sanders co-founded the groundbreaking rock band The Fugs, opened the Peace Eye Bookstore, and appeared on the cover of Life magazine, becoming a hero of the American counterculture. He is a classics scholar, pioneer in investigative poetics, inventor of musical instruments, publisher of The Woodstock Journal, and author of many books, including the best-selling Charles Manson expose The Family, the ambitious, nine-volume project, America: A History in Verse, and LET'S NOT KEEP FIGHTING THE TROJAN WAR: NEW AND SELECTED POEMS 1986-2009. He lives in Woodstock, New York.
