Abstract

Having fought in Palestine in WWI, the British actor Vivian Gilbert went on to narrate his wartime experiences-first in a series of lectures, then in a best-selling book. Rooted in his thespian career, Gilbert's self-fashioning as an officer/crusader builds on an array of performances-on and off the stage-which reflect gender and class anxieties, typical of WWI British culture.
