    • "Only the first of these five plays is based on actual history. The other four are all dramatized fiction. The second, like the first focusing on Indian life, is the most romantic, based on a Frenchman's novel inspired by his exile in America. The three last are all sea narratives. The third was written by a journalist, and after its…

    • "The first is a dramatization of the well-known greatest American sea novel, which was actually based on a true story, the only one here to be so. Thornton Wilder’s famous novel of 1927 was entirely created on conjecture, although based on a historical event; the third is a black comedy entirely improvised on a possible scene at one of the…

    • "These two Homeric plays are simply dramatizations of the Iliad and the Odyssey. Like all dramatizations of the two major opening works of European literature, that are countless because of the Homeric inexhaustible treasures of good stories, there have been additions and innovations also here, but the main purpose of these contributions is simply to make them fit for the…

    • These three medieval plays are all very controversial but in different ways. All three stories are too well known to need any synopsis, but these versions all diverge considerably from traditional ones. We don’t know the truth of King Arthur and his family nor of Tristan’s story, and we never shall know that truth. That’s why there has always been…

    • Be it far from me to have pretensions to be any kind of poet, but in this world and the other one I think that anyone would certainly agree, there are some things that can not well be told except by words transcending sense and the conventional reality, as we accept and know it. Such things I am here about…

    • $3.00
    • Not all these three dramatizations are based on Sir Walter Scott. The first was actually inspired by Gore Vidal's book "A Search for the King", one of his oddest and most original novels, while naturally Scott's "The Talisman" came naturally falling in line, as it also features the king's favourite minstrel Blondel. "The Talisman" was one of his last novels,…
