DRAMATISTS OF TO-DAY

Rostand, Hauptmann, Sudermann,
Pinero, Shaw, Phillips, Maeterlinck

By PROF. EDWARD EVERETT HALE, JR., of Union
College. With gilt top, $1.50 net. (By mail, $1.60.)

An informal discussion of their principal plays and of the
performances of some of them. A few of those considered are
Man and Superman, Candida, Cyrano de Bergerac, L'Aiglon,
The Sunken Bell, Magda, Ulysses, Letty, Iris, and Pelleas and
Melisande. The volume opens with a paper " On Standards of
Criticism," and concludes with "Our Idea of Tragedy," and an
appendix of all the plays of each author, with dates of their first
performance or publication.

Bookman : " He writes in a pleasant, free-and-easy way. . . .
He accepts things chiefly at their face value, but he describes
them so accurately and agreeably that he recalls vividly to mind
the plays we have seen and the pleasure we have found m them."

New York Evening Post : "It is not often nowadays that a
theatrical book can be met with so free from gush and mere
eulogy, or so weighted by common sense ... an excellent
chronological appendix and full index . . . uncommonly useful
for reference."

Dial : " Noteworthy example of literary criticism in one of the
most interesting of literary fields. . . . Well worth reading a
second time."

FRANCKE'S GERMAN LITERATURE

As Determined by Social Forces. Being the fourth and
enlarged edition of the author's Social Forces in German
Literature.

By PROF. KUNO FRANCKE OF HARVARD.
595 pp. 8vo. $2.50, net.

A critical, philosophical, and historical account of German
literature that is "destined to be a standard work for both profes-
sional and general uses" (Dial). Its wide scope is shown by the
fact that it begins with the sagas of the fifth century and ends with
Sud^rmann's biblical drama Johannes (1898).

"The range of vision is comprehensive, but the details are not
obscured. The splendid panorama of German literature is spread
out before us from the first outburst of heroic song in the dim days
of the migrations, down to the latest disquieting productions of the
Berlin school. We owe a debt of gratitude to the author who has
led us to a commanding height and pointed out to us the kingdoms
of the spirit which the genius of Germany has conquered. The
frequent departures from the orthodox estimates are the result of
the new view-point. They are often a distinct addition to our
knowledge. . . . To the study of German literature in its organic
relation to society this book is the best contribution in English that
has yet been published." The Nation.

"It is neither a dry summary nor a wearisome attempt to in-
clude every possible fact. ... It puts the reader in centre o'
the vital movements of the time. . . . One often feels as if tb
authors treated addressed themselves persona' ly to him; the dis
course coming not through bygone dead books, but rather through
living men." Prof. Friedrich Paulsen of University of Berlin.

"A noble contribution to the history of civilization, and valu-
able not only to students of German literature, but to all who are
interested in the progress of our race." The Hon. Andrew D.
White, ex-President of Cornell University.

"For the first time German literature has been depicted with
a spirit that imparts to it organicyuuity . . . rich in well -weighed,
condensed judgments of writers . . not mere rewordings of the
opinions of standard critics. . . . The style is clear, crisp, and un-
obtrusive; . . . destined to be a standard work for both professional
and general uses." The Dial.

CHAPTERS OF OPERA

Being historical and critical observations and records concerning
the Lyric Drama in New York from its earliest days down to the
present time.

By HENRY EDWARD KREHBIEL

Musical critic of the New York Tribune, Author of "Music and
Manners in the Classical Period," "Studies in the Wagnerian
Drama," " How to Listen to Music," etc. With over 70 portraits
and pictures of Opera Houses. Second edition, revised.

$3.50 net ; by mail $3.72. Illustrated circular on application.

This is perhaps Mr. Krehbiel's most important book. The
first seven chapters deal with the earliest operatic performances in
New York. Then follows a brilliant account of the first quarter-
century of the Metropolitan, 1883-1908. He tells how Abbey's first
disastrous Italian season was followed by seven seasons of German
Opera under Leopold Damrosch and Stanton, how this was tem-
porarily eclipsed by French and Italian, and then returned to dwell
with them in harmony, thanks to Walter Damrosch's brilliant crusade,
also of the burning of the opera house, the vicissitudes of the
American Opera Company, the coming and passing of Grau and
Conried, and finally the opening of Oscar Hammerstein's Manhattan
Opera House and the first two seasons therein, 1906-08.

" Presented not only in a readable manner but without bias . . . ex-
tremely interesting and valuable." Nation.

"The illustrations are a true embellishment . . . Mr. Krehbiel's style
was never more charming-. It is a delight." Philip Hale in Boston Hernia.

" A readable and valuable book, which no one who is interested in the
subject can afford to leave out of his library . . . written in entertaining
manner, and it is comprehensive." Putnam.

" Invaluable for purpose of reference . . . rich in critical passages . . .
all the great singers of the world have been heard here. Most of the treat
conductors have come to our shores. . . . Memories of them which serve
to humanize, as it were, his analyses of their work." Pfeiv York Tribune.

ROSTAND-HA UPTMANN-SUDERMANN

( The text is in the original. The editorial matter in English.)

Rostand: Cyrano de Bergerac

Come'die heroique en 5 actes. Edited, with introduction and
notes, by Prof. OSCAR KUHNS, of Wesieyan University,
xiii + 202 PP- i2ino. 80 cents net.

The editor has most happily explained the many allusions to
persons, places, and customs. He also gives numerous illustra-
tive quotations from the works of the author, of the real Cy-
rano, etc.

Prof. H. A. Rennert, of the University of Pa.: "It is a very
careful and scholarly piece of work."

Hauptmann: Die versunkene Glocke

Ein deutsches Marchen-Drama. Edited, with introduction
and notes, by Prof. THOMAS S. BAKER, of Johns Hopkins
University. xviii+aos PP- i6mo. 80 cents net.
The introduction contains a sketch of Hauptmann and his re-
lation to the contemporary literary movement in Germany, and
considerations of the sources of the play, besides a brief bibli-
ography. The notes, which are quite full, give much interesting
mythological and historical information.

Prof. H. C. G. Brandt, of Hamilton College . " It is probably
the most remarkable play since Goethe's Faust, and to edit it
was no small task. This task has been successfully done by Dr.
Baker. The dramaturgical and historical-mythological notes
are particularly good and helpful."

Sudermann: Frau Sorge

With introduction and notes by Prof. GUSTAV GRUENER,
of Yale University, xvii -f- 268 pp. i2mo. 80 cents.
Of Frau Sorge a recent critic has said that in this novel Suder-
mann has produced his best and most personal work. This is
due to the fact that it is to some extent autobiographical, a poet-
ical version of the struggle of the author's younger years. The
introduction gives a full account of Sudermann's work and of
his relation to the modern realistic school of fiction. The notes
are largely literary.
