Fanny Kemble : Leading Lady of the Nineteenth-Century Stage, a Biography. - signed or inscribed book

1982, ISBN: 0385272081

Hardcover, ID: 2557956554

[EAN: 9780385272087], [SC: 12.48], [PU: Dial Press, New York, first edition, 1982], KEMBLE, F. WYKBOOKS 24011 FANNY, 1809-1893. ACTRESSES -- GREAT BRITAIN BIOGRAPHY. ACTORS FURNAS, JOSEPH CHAMBERLAIN, Jacket, Quarter-cloth and boards, 8vo, 24 cm, xiv, 494 pp, 8 pp of plates. From the blurb: "The dashing young Anglo-American horse-woman had already been a triumphant actress, a social lioness, a conspicuous writer, an unlucky wife, and a loving mother. Presently she would be a browbeaten divorcee, a self-propelled feminist, a powerful witness against black slavery, and the brilliant autobiographer of her over-flowingly full life.This new, leisurely biography is the first ever to utilize the full range of materials making up Fanny Kemble's dynamic story. The glow she shed was so intense that sober Yankee businessmen drove through snowstorms to hear her read Shakespeare, and Henry James, an intimate of her later years, called her "the first woman in London." Dukes and countesses, mountain guides, stagehands, ships' captains, Philadelphia lawyers, Roman coachmen, Shakespearean scholars, and slave owners (one of whom she married, to his and her great sorrow) had pungently good reason to remember her. Born into the greatest family of actors the English stage had ever known, she was as proud as she was brilliant. Fierce independence made her a spirited, tragic rebel against Victorian marriage. Distaste for tyranny and sympathy for suffering made her a bitter, eloquent foe of southern slavery." Inscribed and signed by the author on the front free endpaper. Very Good in slightly used dustwrapper.
