The chapters of this book include: 'The Art of the Dramatist', 'Greek Tragedy', 'Greek and Roman Comedy', 'The Medieval Drama', 'The Drama in Spain', 'The Drama in England', 'The Drama in France', 'The Drama in the Eighteenth Century', 'The Drama in the Nineteenth-century', and 'The Future of Drama'.
