|JULIUS CAESAR & ELIZABETH THE QUEEN :: 1954 HB|
" The aim of this book is to present side by side, for the purpose of comparison, a recognized classic and a modern work of somewhat similar nature. The two players chosen, Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and Maxwell Anderson's Elizabeth the Queen have certain points in common. Both are based on well known historical events; they treat these events from the standpoint of drama rather than of history; they offer strongly contrasted character study; they end in tragedy; they are expressed in poetic form. "
" With such a basis for comparison, it is hoped that the careful student will be able to discover the qualities that give lasting value to a work of art. He will, perhaps, distinguish between the surface differences that are inseparable from the age to which they belong and the essential unity of vital truths, wherever and whenever manifested. When he sees the classic and the modern author molding their products in different workshops and possibly with varying degrees of skill but out of the same material, the age-old clay of human nature, he may learn how indestructible are the qualities of sincerity, clear vision, and artistry that go to make up a masterpiece.
