Abstract:

The first woman to be elected to the Academie Francaise and a close contender for a Nobel Prize, Marguerite Yourcenar remained characteristically indifferent to public life and professional honors. This program-shot on location at her hermitage on Mount Desert Island a year before her death in 1987-profiles the life and literature of a renowned novelist, poet, and essayist who viewed the world and even herself with a curious detachment. Best known for her historical novels such as Memoirs of Hadrian, excerpts of which are read by actress Janet Suzman, Yourcenar displays her remarkable range by reading lyrics from her offbeat Blues et Gospels.
