Through a study of the actress' films, records and writings, Gerda Taranow reconstructs the rigorously developed artistry that lay behind the superb performances. Analyzing each histrionic element and discussing repertoire she shows how Bernhardt adapted the techniques learned at the Conservatoire and in the theatre to her own particular strengths and limitations.
