Rives, Amélie


Rives, Amélie
(1863-1945)
   A Virginian who married a Russian prince, Amélie Rives dramatized her own novel, The Quick or the Dead? (1888), and composed several blank-verse tragedies, including Herod and Miriamne (1888), Athelwold (1893), and Augustine the Man (1906). She demonstrated greater versatility in later plays, including The Fear Market (1916) and Allegiance, a 1918 collaboration with her husband Prince Troubetzkoy that centered on German-American frictions during World War I, after which she adapted Mark Twain's The Prince and the Pauper (1920) and collaborated with Gilbert Emery on a successful romantic comedy, Love in a Mist (1926). Turning to ancient Irish legends for her source, Rives also wrote The Sea-Woman's Cloak (1925).
