it was amazing

Excellent in almost every way

The translation is excellent, preserving the sensibility of turn-of-the-20th-century Russia while making it easy for a 21st-century American to relate to. The notes are very helpful too. My only small complaint is that the notes for all four plays are lumped together at the very end; running footnotes at the bottoms of annotated pages would be better, as would easier access to the character list (Russian names -- especially the constantly changing nicknames -- are hard to keep straight).
