Scene, ancient Florence. A five-act drama in blank verse. Sixteen characters. A Florentine prince of ruined fortunes consents that his heir shall marry the rich merchant Risifi's daughter. By chance the young man, after, much against his will, learning to love Generva, finds out his brother loves her. He generously offers to give her to his brother. The merchant insists she shall marry the heir or some scheming friend of his. Giovanni commits suicide to make his brother heir and give the lovers to each other. -"Publishers' Weekly. "In "Risifi's Daughter," the author has adapted her story-telling talents to the requirements of dramatic form in blank verse with remarkable success. The narrative itself is powerful, and Miss Green has succeeded admirably in making her characters develop it clearly by what they do and say. This without sacrificing the truly poetic movement of her lines. The richness of Miss Green's poetry for purposes of quotation is remarkable. Her stanzas breathe the breath of life; and, perhaps all the more surely because slowly, they will occupy a worthy place among the writings of American poets. -"The Magazine of Poetry and Literary Review," Vol. 1
