1975: A Prophetic Drama
BY HARRIET HOSMER
Siminberghi’s Printing Office, Rome (1875)
The author of 1975 has been much amused to find that her drama is supposed to contain a certain political significance. She would have thought that its obvious absurdity, from beginning to end, would have protected her from such an imputation, and the serious character attributed to it appears to her to be a far more ingenious jest than any she had introduced into the play.
The play is now printed as originally written, although it was condensed for representation, fearing the dialogue might be too long.
