Pillars of Society, which was completed in 1877, was the earliest of the social dramas on which his fame will always mainly rest, and betrays some signs of experiment. In it the dramatist has not yet quite found his feet on the ouad which he trod with the triumphant assurance o a master b the time Reamer: holm, which is typical of power at its highest, appeared in 1886.
