Praise For…


“ A fascinating biography of one professional by another. Le Gallienne writes with old-fashioned reverence about the great Italian actress.” — Chicago Sun-Times


“ [Le Gallienne] disposes of the hard-dying myth that the great Italian actress played simply on the inspiration of the moment.... Le Gallienne’ s thesis is that Duse’ s artistic triumphs resulted from her victories over herself, triumphs of character achieved through intellectual and spiritual struggle.... [This book] has yet another quality, however, which concerns Miss Le Gallienne herself. It steadily if indirectly shines with her own idealistic concept of theater.” — Christian Science Monitor


“ [The Mystic in the Theatre is] thoughtful, sensible, candid and literate. . . [Le Gallienne’ s] own memories provide a fascinating glimpse both into herself and the tired, fading great actress whom she adored.” — Tyrone Guthrie, New York Times Book Review
