HOW TO ACQUIRE FACIAL MIMICRY 129
gentle irony, the sarcasm like fireworks, like bombs; thunderous gayety.
Is the mouth thick-lipped and red?
It will signify gayety, health, kindness, tender­ness, love, broad farce, roaring laughter, carnal appetite, debauchery of the city as well as of the village.
Whether it be the mouth of a great lady or mouth of a farm girl, large and red, thin and pale, every woman's mouth is a surprising accessory in the art of facial mimicry.
The dramatic artist has to develop the re­sources of his face, he has to master his eyes and his mouth. His eyes must be able to correspond to the thousand shades of human thought, the mouth must be under the control of an ever inventive intellectuality.
Your face must be the soft clay submitting to your will, your power of transfiguration.
