Noted Orator Analyzes Modern


of Dramatic




Says Real Writers No Longer
Adhere to Abstract
Maintaining that Ibsen was the
trail blazer of modern drama,
Louis K. Anspacher, noted orator,
dramatist and philosopher, last
night discussed the whole subject
of the spirit of modern American
drama before a large audience in
Hill auditorium.
"Witl Ibsen," said Mr. Anspacher,
"came a new spirit in the world of
the theatre. Ibsen abolished dram-
atic dressmaking by which dra-
matists created roles for the indi-
vidual. Ibsen wrote dramas, not
roles, and set an example which
was followed by all his contem-
poraries and which has been the
standard of modern dramatists-by
concerning himself with the entire
Abolishes Mechanical Suspense
This method, Mr. Anspacher
stated, evokes the state of the soul
behind the physical issue and does
away with mechanical ;suspense
He quoted "The Great Divide" as-
a classic example.
"Ibsen introduced brittle, clipped
speech," said Mr. Anspacher, "and
dispensed with such lines as,
'Whence comes that delectable
odor?' In modern plays the heroine
sniffs the air and asks, 'What's that
I smell?' Audiences no longer
emerge from a theatre commnenting
ou the wonderful or extraordinary
play. Instead they say, ' xow true ,
1how real.'
.. ..Absent Ideals E xtinct.
"Modern dramatists make use of
pIychology," he asserted, "by seek-
ing the soul. More theatrical writ-
ers depend on the old-fashioned
mechanics. No more is there any
approximation to any abstract ideal,
or external stimulus; it is left up
to the inward spirit of the indi-
Mr. Anspacher compared William
Gilette's "Held by the Enemy" and
the more modern "What Price
Glory" as examples. The spirit in
the first play, he said, was 'Let mnc
go out and die for my country,'
while in the latter there is no ab-
stract ideal by which the charac-
ters govern their conduct. "Captain
Frlagg did his duty because he felt
that it was his individual responsi-
bility," Mr. Anspacher explained,
