Holmgren’s study is a truly transnational biography, elegantly written and immaculately researched. Its real achievement is to make Modrzejewska whole, not just by bridging two national narratives but by integrating her public and private personae. . . . Starring Madame Modjeska will be of interest
to scholars of nineteenth-century Poland, world theater, and American immigration. (H-Poland H-Net Reviews)
While theater enthusiasts will enjoy the care and detail that Beth Holmgren took with Starring Madame Modjeska, readers of history will appreciate the role this woman played on the world's stage. It makes for great drama. (newpages.com)
Starring Madame Modjeska is based on very solid archival research, yet it is written with lightness and grace―qualities inspired by the character of the formidable protagonist of this excellent book. (Slavic Review)
The breadth of Holmgren's research is impressive, as is her talent as a writer. Her achievement is to have put together from many disparate sources an immensely readable narrative. (Women's Review of Books)
Beth Holmgren's book is a monograph of Helena Modrzejewska/Modjeska . . . , the famous Polish-American stage star. The author's purpose was 'to introduce a little-remembered actress to a new American audience' . . . . This plan was successfully completed. Starring Madame Modjeska is not just a popularized biography but a result of meticulous research and intellectual elaboration. (Pol-Int)
