Abstract:

Most of the professional career of playwright Charles Klein is illuminated by this collection of notes, scenarios, manuscripts, and typescripts for sixty-two of his plays, both produced and unproduced. From the successful El Capitan of 1896 to the posthumously produced The Guilty Man of 1916, almost all of his significant plays are represented here to at least some extent. Jottings of nascent ideas, multiple scenarios, voluminous notes to himself about effects to be achieved and aspects of character to be brought out, and heavily revised manuscripts and typescripts all attest to an artisan who took his task quite seriously and give an unusually full picture of the artistic goals and priorities of a successful American playwright from the beginning of the twentieth century.
