Extent1 item
Date11 April 1932
DescriptionAuthorises Nicoll to use his letters to Clifford Bax, about poetic drama in his article. Sets out his views on poetic drama: poetic drama has a place in literature, the action of the play should be conventional, not realistic; poetic drama involves the use of sound to transmit beauty; the audiences for such works would be small, and the aim of such works would be beauty alone, not an imitation of life. Verse has no place in realistic drama. Gives details of Scottish plays and dramatists
