About This Item

Chicago: Nelson-Hall Company. Hardcover. 1978. 1st Edition. 8vo 343pp . Very Good in Very Good DJ. B&W Illustrations Title page is rubber-stamped "REVIEW COPY" in 1/2 inch high letters, front edges foxed James A. Herne (1839-1901) was an American playwright, actor, and theater manager. He is best known for two plays that were well in advance of their time in their realistic treatment of serious social problems. Drifting Apart (1888) probes the consequences of man's slavery to drink. Margaret Fleming (1890) is an outspoken treatment of an unfaithful husband and his forgiving wife. The plays were praised by such literary figures as William Dean Howells and Hamlin Garland, but they shocked the theater public of the day .
