What Passion!

It’s All In The Delivery

The actress Helena Modjeska was highly regarded for her ability to breathe life and emotion into her performances.  One day she was giving a dramatic recitation at a dinner party.  The item she recited was well known in her native Poland and she delivered it with such zeal and passion that, even though they didn’t understand any of it, her listeners were moved to tears.

Now that’s talent!  And what was this wondrous piece of literature that could so touch the emotions of her listeners?

The Polish alphabet.
