The Treasure of the Humble
1903. With Introduction by A.B. Walkley. Play by the Belgian poet, dramatist, essayist and Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature and whose literary career began with the publication of two volumes of poetry. With M. Maeterlinck as a dramatist the world is pretty well acquainted. This little volume presents him in the new character of a philosopher and an aesthetician. And it is in some sort an apology for his theater, the one being to the other as theory to practice. Contents: Silence; The Awakening of the Soul; The Predestined; Mystic Morality; On Women; The Tragical in Daily Life; The Star; The Invisible Goodness; The Deeper Life; and The Inner Beauty.
