A Pordenone postscript on a subject very dear to my heart – Asta Nielsen.
While I was at the Giornate I was lucky enough to talk to scholar Julie K. Allen about her research into Asta Nielsen, including her English-language translation of the actress’s fascinating memoir, The Silent Muse, which was released by Boydell & Brewer earlier this year. It is a tremendous book. An engrossing read, which offers insights into Nielsen’s life and work and especially the world of Weimar Cinema.
I will let you know when that interview is available – it is for a forthcoming journal issue. But for now, you can buy yourself a copy of The Silent Muse, at a 50% discount, with the special offer on this flyer. The offer is valid until the end of October. I thought you’d like to know.
