M. Firmini Roz Gives Brilliant Lecture
on Modern Theater and Develop.
w-nt of the Drama.
"Already a reaction is beginning
which will carry the French theatre
back to the old conventions," declared
M. Firmin Roz in his brilliant lec-
ture last evening on the modern the-
ater and its relation to contemporary
manners. The distinguished schol-
ar and critic is touring America under
the auspices of the Alliance Francaise.
His lecture here was attended by a
large audience which found his pene-
trating criticism deeply interesting.
M. IRoz began by discussing the mn-
portance of the theater in all the pe-
riods of French literature, and the
reason for its occupying this place,
which he found in the peculiar literary
genius of the nation. He discussed at
length the beginning and development
of naturalism and symbolism as seen
in the drama, with many rich illus-
trations from his close familiarity with
the French theaters.

wright, Will Speak in This
City on Feb. 6.
Percy MacKaye, the well-known
author and playwright, will give a
lecture on "The Peoples' Leisure and
the Civic Theater" in Sarah Caswell

ject matter of the lecture will be tak-
en from a book manuscript which he

playwrights of America. His two dra-
mas "The Canterbury Pil'ims" and
"Jeanne D'Arc" met with a big suc-.
cess, the latter having been produced
in London, England. He is also au-
thor of a volume of poems, and in col
laboration with Prof. . P. S. Tat-
lock, has recently published the "Mod-
ern Readers' Chaucer."
