Excerpt from Kate: A Comedy in Four Acts Excepting the word "Act," which seems as clear and as familiar as any other word that could be used for the purpose, all the technicalities of the stage are utterly ignored in this comedy as here printed; and even the names of the speakers are not constantly repeated as heretofore thought necessary in all dramatic publications. Their continual and useless repetition, wearying to the eye and a bar to the natural movement of thought, is no more necessary to the reader of a play than to the reader of the occasional dialogues in a novel. So far as the mere form of the play is concerned the author wishes if possible to carry the imagination directly to scenes of real life and not to the stage. To ask a man sitting in a library first to imagine himself in a theatre, then to imagine himself somewhere else, is to obscure if not destroy the true dramatic effect of what he reads.
