THE WASTER

A PHILOSOPHIC WAR TRILOGY
WITH NOTES & INTRODUCTION

BY

VERNON LEE

JOHN LANE. The BODLEY HEAD. W.
NEW YORK. JOHN LANE COMPANY MCMXX

GARDEN CITY PREss, letchworth, Herts. TO THE READER

THE whole of this drama is intended to be read, and especially read out loud, as prose; the passages which scan conforming as much as the rest to the vocabulary, the punctuation, the syntax, and the essential logic which differentiate prose from verse. And whatever rhythmical elements have been intentionally introduced, should be merely felt as an indefinable quality, so to speak a timbre, of what is in other respects ordinary speech.
