Book Description Southern Illinois University Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 192 pages. Dimensions: 7.8in. x 4.9in. x 0.5in.While Eva Le Galliennes approach to Eleonora Duse is reverent, it is also scholarly, stylishly written, and considering her personal debt to Duse, remarkably objective. She disposes of the hard-dying myth that the great Italian actress played simply on the inspiration of the moment. Miss Le Galliennes thesis is that Duses artistic triumphs resulted from her victories over herself, triumphs of character achieved through intellectual and spiritual struggle. In support of her title Miss Le Gallienne adduces evidence of Duses long and earnest study of the writings of mystics and philosophers. This book is thoughtful, sensible, candid and literate. Miss Le Galliennes own memories provide a fascinating glimpse into both herself and the tired, fading great actress whom she adored. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9780809306312
