The Poems and Plays of John Masefield, Vol. 2 free pdf Excerpt from The Poems and Plays of John Masefield, Vol. 2 The first of the plays in this volume, The Campden Wonder, was written at Greenwich, near London, at the end of 1905 and beginning of 1906. I had heard the fable of it, The Campden Wonder, in Chipping Campden, in Gloucestershire (where the events happened, or are said to have happened) some years before, while staying there with friends. I had wished, at that time, to write a play upon the subject, and to have it acted in Campden, with other plays founded on the events in that countryside. This scheme came to nothing. In those years many people were dramatizing the events of their cities and districts. There were pageants at Romsey, Winchester, Oxford, Bury and other places. I had hoped that the larger villages might follow the example of the towns. The Campden Wonder was produced at the Court Theatre in London in 1907. Mrs. Harrison, The Sweeps of Ninety-Eight and The Locked Chest were written at Greenwich in 1906. The fable of Mrs. Harrison is a part of the fable of The Campden Wonder. It can be found in one of the two pamphlets which preserve the story of the Wonder. The Sweeps is an invention, though some of the characters, Major Sirr, and Thomas Judkin Fitzpatrick once lived, and used some of the words allotted to them. The fable of The Locked Chest is taken from the Laxdale Saga. All these plays have been acted, the second and third many times. After I had finished The Locked Chest, I wished to try a longer play.
