    Wallack, Lester

  1. Author: Wallack, Lester
    Title: Rosedale
    Date: 1863
    Genre: drama
    Note Relating to Cather: "Melodrama of half a century ago looks queer enough when viewed through modern eyes. I suppose when Lester Wallack wrote Rosedale that the situations really had some life in them, and that gypsies and stolen children had still all their naïve and artless charm for the untutored gallery....But along with all the old-fashioned effects and devices, its queer comedy and black ponds and stolen children, Rosedale has one thing which many a better play has not, it has 'literary quality,' the quaint stilted quality of the time, but still quality."
