Subject: [Theaterfacultystaff] Cornel West on Chekhov
"The tragicomic vision of Anton Chekhov-the most illuminating and empowering vision put forward in our ghastly century-encourages me to put a premium on garnering resources from a vanishing past in a decadent present in order to keep alive a tempered home for the future, a hope against hope that human empathy and compassion may survive against the onslaught of human barbarity, brutality and bestiality." From Keeping Faith.
