The interesting title above is given by Mr. Archer to fourteen lectures delivered in 1920 and 1921 at King's College, London, before audiences comprised largely of teachers. While tracing briefly the progress of English drama from Elizabethan times to the present day, Mr. Archer's book makes no attempt at a logical and connected history of the stage. It is rather a series of brilliant and penetrating criticisms of representative examples of the old and new dramas by one who is protesting vigorously against the essentially ignorant fashion of praising the past at the expense of the present.” The author, who is perhaps the foremost English-speaking dramatic critic alive, insists that we are living in a great creative period of dramatic history and that the productions of such men as Barrie, Galsworthy, and Barker excel in numerous respects the frequently over-exalted works of their predecessors.
Few students who have an adequate knowledge of Elizabethan drama will disagree with Mr. Archer's contention that a lot of eloquent nonsense has been written about Shakspere and his contemporaries, or with his claim that in various respects the “ double distilled drama " of our time has achieved various subtle effects undreamed of by the older writers. There are some, however, who will believe that Mr. Archer has been a little too free with the “ spice of exaggeration ” in his treatment of the older dramatists, particularly Webster and the men of the Restoration, and who will contend that he overemphasizes the dramatic importance of the purely intellectual. These, while admitting its limitations, will continue to prefer the “barbarious product” of the Elizabethans to the refined cleverness of Mr. Barker. With these Mr. Archer will of course have no quarrel, for whether one prefers the old drama to the new depends more upon one's temperament than upon one's knowledge of dramatic history and technique. Nor will he resent, I hope, the expression of a fear that his book, as brilliant and stimulating and essentially sane as it unquestionably is, may exert, among a certain class of superficial enthusiasts in this country at least, an exceedingly pernicious influence. Mr. Archer has apparently been irritated by the “ essentially ignorant fashion of praising the past at the expense of the present.” Some of us in America have been rather persistently bored by the even more
ignorant pastime of puffing the present at the expense of the past. Baldwin, T. W. A Note on John Fletcher.. MLN., XXXVIII, 377-8. Barnouw, A. J. De Tragedie van Johan van Olden-Barnevelt.
