A Handbook of the Drama

P. J. Cooke


Excerpt from A Handbook of the Drama: Its Philosophy and Teaching; With a Chapter on the Law of Copyright in Its Relation to Dramatic Work

This work is an endeavour to put forth certain facts which the author believes will be of advantage and utility to the embryo dramatic author, critic and playgoer. His information has been gained partly from experience, both as a dramatic critic and as a student of the Drama, and partly from works of sufficient authority upon the subject to warrant their views being quoted.

The author is indebted for much valuable information contained in "Hennequin's Play writing" and other works of a similar nature, which he now comprehensively acknowledges. His best thanks are due to Mr. Edmond Browne, who has been kind enough to contribute the chapter upon the law relating to the copyright of plays, which brings to a conclusion what the author has tried to make both practical and intelligible.
