1916. Maeterlinck, the Belgian poet, dramatist, essayist and Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, whose literary career began with the publication of two volumes of poetry. This volume contains, in the chronological order in which they were produced, all the essays published and all the speeches delivered by M. Maeterlinck since the beginning of the war, upon which, as will be perceived, each one of them has a direct bearing.
