This volume collects the brilliant lectures which the great actor Michael Chekhov presented at his studio classes in New York in 1941. His technique and philosophy of acting initially derived from his Moscow Art Theatre work with Stanislavsky. Under such titles as "The Psychological Gesture," "The Imagination," "Continuous Acting," the Chekhov teaching method of psycho-physical exercises, improvisations, scene study, and "Questions and Answers" reveals its continued importance for actor training today.
