"This collection restores the luster to Ira Aldridge's reputation by examining his extraordinary achievements against all odds. The early essays offer biographical information, while later essays examine his critical and popular reception throughout the world. Here, too, are analyses of Aldridge's performances in some of his most famous roles, as well as surprising new information about his private life. Taken together, these diverse approaches to Aldridge offer a fuller understanding and heightened appreciation of a remarkable man who had an exceptionally interesting life and a spectacular career."--Jacket
