Dramatic Apprenticeship

  • H. B. Garland


To claim that Lessing is a great dramatist would be idle. On his own admission he was no creative writer.1 Nevertheless, since a considerable body of his work consists of plays, and these are not confined to any one period of his life, though it is true that the greater number belong to the early years of his literary activity, it is worth inquiring what can have led him in the first place to devote himself to play-writing.
