Excerpt from Heroines of France: An Historic Tragedy, in Two Parts
A preface is needed here to allow the author to make an apology for the brevity of the tragedy, heroines of France. Brevity, in most forms of expression, is commendable, but is not to be applauded in a play. The only excuse I can offer, and which, I think, will be found a reasonable one, is that the subject I have chosen will not admit a lengthy programme. The heroines were both women of obscure lives. Not until the thrilling tragedies attached to their histories, like grand meteors, loomed over their humble destinies, has there been any thing possible to relate of them in a drama. In order, therefore, to give a true picture of their lives to the public, the writer can only grasp at the soul-fires that burned in their heroic hearts such as they were kindled at the moment when the great events associated with them were in the supreme height of their glory. This I have endeavored to portray – and only this. Nothing but the tragedies, faithfully recorded, as I found them traced on the tablet of history, where they lie mirrored among the troubles, the triumphs, and the griefs that have been buried in the deep and ever-rolling surges of time. In order to make up for the deficiency of the length of the play, before the play opens the “Balcony Scene” from Romeo and Juliet might be introduced, or any other favorite selection.
