Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

, the classic autobiography first published just after Duncan's death, is a frank and engrossing life account of this remarkable visionary and feminist who took on the world, reinvented dance, and led the way for future great American modernists Ruth St. Denis, Agnes de Mille, and Martha Graham.Documenting Duncan's own life as a dancer and as a woman--from her enchantment with classical music and poetry as a child in San Francisco and her intense study of classical Greek art in Athens, through the great strides she made in teaching, founding schools, performing, and collaborating with international artists, to her notorious love affairs and the tragic deaths of her own children-- reissued here is still as extraordinary as the woman who wrote it more than sixty years ago.

This autobiography covers the life of Isadora Duncan (1877-1927), whose innovative modern dance and lifestyle captivated the cultural scenes of America, Europe and Russia. Important events and issues explored range from her childhood love of classical music and poetry to the deaths of her children.

Synopsis:

Unquestionably brave, creative, and erudite, the free spirit Isadora Duncan (1877-1927) captivated the American, European, and Soviet cultural scenes with her innovative modern dance and un-self-conscious lifestyle.
