Respect for Acting

"This fascinating and detailed book about acting is Miss Hagen'scredo, the accumulated wisdom of her years spent in intimatecommunion with her art. It is at once the voicing of her exactingstandards for herself and those she [taught], and an explanation ofthe means to the end."

Her principal asset in this treatment is hertruly significant imagination. Her 'object exercises' display awealth of detail with which to stimulate the student preparing ascene for presentation."
