The Best Poetic Work of Cale Young Rice (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Best Poetic Work of Cale Young Rice The three longer dramas, Yolanda Of Cyprus, David, and Charles di Tocca, have been finally revised for this volume, so are to be judged here only. Their materials, unlike those of the narratives, are not of today's America, but of the romantic past. Were that not so, however, I would admit to a belief that romantic-realism, the creed under which they were written, seems to be indispensable to poetic drama. For realism unquestion ably demands prose, and classicism less poetic intensity and glamour of materials than such drama requires. That their speech should be natural, however imaginatively poetic, and their development of character and action organic, was therefore especially what I sought. A Night In Avignon, Giorgione, and Arduin, the three one-act plays included, were written under the same creed.
