This translation of Un Drama Nuevo by Spain's greatest modern dramatist was made during the winter and spring of 1914. It was a work of love in more senses than one. Mr. Guild had a deep interest in all dramatic literature. His life work was to study not only its artistic beauty in the domain of Belles-Lettres, but also its technique and its value as a moral force. I was interested in Spanish literature and in spreading among our people a wider knowledge of Spanish culture. Both of us were profoundly impressed with this particular work and wished to make it more available for our compatriots. And by doing this piece of work together we hoped to draw closer the bonds of friendship that already united us. This last object we attained.
Thacher Howland Guild, son of an old New England family and graduate of Brown, was one of those rare men of prepossessing personality who upon closer acquaintance prove to be even better than our expectations. Among his colleagues and students he exerted a quiet yet strong influence for righteousness, without ever descending to preachments.
