Eleonora Giulia Amalia Duse ( DEW-zay, 3 October 1858 – 21 April 1924), often known simply as Duse, was an Italian actress, rated by many as the greatest of her time, in keen competition with Sarah Bernhardt. She performed in many countries, notably in the plays of Gabriele d'Annunzio and Henrik Ibsen. Duse achieved a unique power of conviction and verity on the stage through intense absorption in the character, “eliminating the self” as she put it, and letting the qualities emerge from within, not imposed through artifice.
