A Little Bit of Fluff – Theatre Royal Lincoln – 1916

Some thing called A Little Bit of Fluff is going like wild fire, so I’m told, and elsewhere Gabrielle Ray’s singing of A soldier bluff With a little bit of fluff On a Saturday afternoon the while she dances not in the Pavlova manner seems a fair specimen of what the public wants in war time. Strange, isn’t it, and just a little thoughtless, perhaps, and terrible but better, I suppose, than being all such sensitive plants, as, say, Maeterlinck, the Belgian poet. He is on the verge of despair because he can only remember the terrible loss of so many wonderful young lives and see so many incarnations of physical and moral vigour, of intellect and of glorious promise, pitilessly cut off in their first flower.”

The Bystander, 10th November 1915

The Dead Do Not Die, Maurice Maeterlinck
