Author: Sardou, Victorien
Note Relating to
Cather: In an 1897 Journal article, Cather reviewed Fanny Davenport's productions of several plays by Victorien Sardou: Fedora, La Tosca, Cleopatra, Madame Sans Gene, and Gismonda: "And there is only one Sardou. The matronly Fanny Davenport has been giving him to us all week and he is just as great as ever — in spite of Fanny."
In an 1895 Courier article, Cather review of Lillian Lewis as Shakespeare's Cleopatra: "I wish it had been Sardou's Cleopatra that Miss Lewis played, for, compared to Shakespeare's it is cheap and tawdry, it has less beauty to mar, less dignity to lose."
