Arizona : A Romance of the Great Southwest (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Arizona: A Romance of the Great Southwest This is now the second time that I have attempted to take another man's creations who had played their part upon the stage and make them go through their paces in the pages of a book. The work, I must admit, is not hard. It is all cut out for you. You are simply an observer. You play the part of the ancient Greek Chorus, as it were. It is somewhat monotonous work, though; for a decent regard for the rights of the real author pre vents you from taking liberties with his people. You can not be so ill-bred as to put things in their mouths according to your own fancy. You can not be the deus ex machina of the plot and ar range matters in accordance With your own will. All this is a prelude to saying that this story is not told by me but by Mr. Thomas. There is as much of him and as little of me in the book as I could manage and still have it a book, where everything had to be set down on the printed page rather than acted on the public stage.
