The power of celebrity is the power of contradiction and paradox. Celebrities are extraordinary and typical, trendy and transcendent, vulnerable and omnipotent; they can seem simultaneously masculine and feminine, straight and gay, and the greatest stars appeal across ethnic, religious, linguistic and national boundaries. In this lecture, Sharon Marcus, the Orlando Harriman Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University, explores the dual nature of celebrity by focusing on nineteenth-century actress Sarah Bernhardt (1844-1923), known for much of her lifetime as the most famous woman in the world.
