This is a wonderful play. Though it is little known, it should be considered a classic. In this play Lucifer sits on a cold desolate planet. There he is the leader of fools and criminals; but Lucifer is very different from that wayward mob. Lucifer’s only crime is that he refuses to bow to any god or spirit. For this crime Lucifer is banished to a desolate rock of a planet. There Lucifer is truly alone; for he has no equal among the fools, common criminals and the wayward. The characters in this play include The Risen Christ, Lucifer, Zeus, Hermes and a dozen others.

“Lucifer: A Theological Tragedy,” by George Santayana, ’86, is as remarkable for the high level of its thought and its poetical expression as for the magnitude of its plan. . . .—“The Harvard Graduates’ Magazine,” Volume 8 [1900]. [Suggest a different description.]
