LADY GREGORY The netd Irish follilerist and plnjnvrlglit lias written Msveral new dramas IRISH LIFE AND CHARACTER IN LADY GREGORY'S PLAYS Shaw, in writing of Lady Atigttstn Gregery's plnys, s-nld: "They never fall te de ene thing which we nil de mand from u play, which is net, ns stu pid people miv, te amuse ns (though Lady Gregery's plays tire extremely utuuslng), but te take us out of our selves and out of the stuffy theatre while we are listening te them." This graceful and just tribute from a man who rarely compliments nnd never flutters except himself held very true for the several pieces in "The Image and Other Plays" (Putnam). The volume includes "The linage," "llniirnhnn's Oath." "Shanwnlla" and "The Wivns." The second nnd last are in the one-net form In which Lady Gregery excels and the ethers ure mere extended dramatically In the three-act form. "Shai'walla" recreates out of the rich materlnl in Lady Grigery's "Vision and Hellefs of the West, of Ireland" a blery of the persistence of life after deaih. "Hanrahnn's- Oath." inspired by a performance of "The Dumb Wife." puts a man in the same sort of silence. "The Wrens" is wt in the period between the Hlsing of '08 and (he Aet of l'nlen (which Itvmn cbnr iicteri.eii us the union of the shark and Its. pre and Gladstone denounced ns tin' lilnil.e-t blot en the pages of Lng lMi history i.

Titles, oiliect. and money bribes were the agencies employed by Pitt and Castlcrciigh. The little play let echoes tome of the sordid condi tions of the period. These who wish te read about "btage Irishmen" or the caricatures of Thack eray will net find much te please them In this book, but these interested in real lilsh life .-iud character, unadorned and neither depreciated nor sintimentnllzed will find much te delight them in It.

The present volume Is the fourth of a scries of such plays, and the contents are just ns varied and removed irem tbe beaten path ns the first three vol umes. Fer example, "All Fer Leve, or the World Well Lest," the Restoration tragedy of Jehn Dryden Is included, and, te most readers, will probably ap peal ns the soundest nnd most worth while of the four plays. Less can be said of the Intrinsic merits of "Shnkuntala," translated from the Indian drama of Knlldnsn. At times it isf full of a ghostly, unreal att mesphcre which arrests the attention", but the interminable length of th play nnd the absence of nny semblance of dramatic unities stand in Its disfavor, except te these who nre studying It as a novelty, and arc interested In com paring it te similar creations in Gaelic, Ners-e or Teuten literature. The pres ent version is rather neatly nnd pain lessly abridged. "The Wandering Scholar Frem Para dise." n fchrevc-tlde farce by Hans Sachs, dating back te 1550, typical of German medieval drama, is extremely short, nnd derives its Interest almost solely from its traditions. Again, much can he said for the intelligent nnd colorful translation. The final play In the volume is "The Martyrdom of All," adopted from the Persian and "drawn from the Miracle Piny of Hasan and Hussnln, as col lected from oral tradition nnd trans lated tinder the direction of Sir Lewis Peily in the 18C0s." Again we hnve a play whose, very nnclent origin Is bound te make its study worth while te stu dents of the drama, but again, also, the play's worth, based en nny kind of standard chosen for dramatic composi tion, is small.

' Stacy Aumenier, one of the foremost young English novelists, author of The Querrils, One After Anether, etc., is at last receiving the public recognition which is his due, after years of enjoy enjey ing the almost unanimous applause of the best critics en both sides of the Atlantic. TW is a deeply penetrating psychological study of a mere or less average woman, melodramatic per haps, but only as life is melodramatic. Barbara Powersceurt, the daughter of a music-hall favor ite and a Lord Chancellor of England, is one of the most appealing portraits in the gallery of 4 :; women that recent fiction has given us. Tha New Yerk Herald says: "Mr. Aumenier rises in this novel te an efficiency both of dramatic power and psychologies! subtlety notably above any of his preceding novels. . . . Mr. Aumenier has worked" ever most difficult subject matter vrhh extraordinary restraint and skill with something of the complete ness and inexorableness of a Balzac; a very English and modern Balzac.
