Nikolai Evreinov’s theories on drama are presented in Vvedenie v monodramu (1909; an introduction to monodrama), Teatr kak takovoy (1913; the theater as such), and the three-volume Teatr dlya sebya (1915-1917; The Theater in Life, 1927). A summary of these theoretical writings is available in English in The Theater in Life, reissued in 1970. Evreinov also wrote articles and books on various dramatic topics, such as Spanish actors of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, serf actors, theatrical invention, the origin of drama, Semitic and German drama, and the Russian theater. His own and other plays staged by him at The Crooked Mirror were published under his editorship in the three-volume Dramaticheskiye sochineniya (1907-1923).
