In this story of the life and career of Sarah Bernhardt, her rise to stardom is well-documented, as are the behind-the-scenes episodes in her colorful and sensational personal life. Excerpts from the letters of family, friends, lovers and Sarah herself are included. The narrator uses these opportunities for dramatic reading effectively. However, the majority of the book is scholarly in its approach, and little can be done to enhance the performance. The multitude of names, dates and other data may be overwhelming to the listener. This recording is appropriate for those developing a strong collection in theatrical history. C.A.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 93]
