Excerpt from Modern Drama in Europe

AN attempt to reconstruct the dramatic pro gress of the last half-century might be justified on two grounds. There are indications that the drama of these years is already nearing definite reaction. This makes it possible to regard it as the rise and decline of forces even now ceasing to operate. With this recognition of coming change, a closer study of the period in question discovers lines along which the drama has developed. This essay is the attempt to trace those lines, and to suggest that the history of the drama during the past fifty years has been the history of a swift rise, and a slow descent to disintegration and unproductive repetition.

The dominant dramatic art of the period has taken the form labelled' realism' in current critical cant; and almost contemporary with this in its origin, there is clearly to be seen a strain of revolt, which has made use of symbolism and of many of the trappings of romance. This spirit of revolt has assisted in the disintegration of the prevailing drama without offering much of value in its place.
