The visionary choreographerand dancer Isadora Duncan (1877 1927) not only revolutionised dance in the twentieth century but blazed a path within the art for other pioneers. While many biographies have explored Duncan's crucial role as one of the founders of modern dance, no other book has proved as critical as both a historical record and a vivid evocation of a riveting life as her autobiography. Now, in this redesigned and repackaged edition, this fascinating, even sensational work (New York Times), with its romantic effusions and idealistic sentiment, can be appreciated by a new generation. From her early enchantment with classical music and poetry to her great successes abroad, to her scandalous love affairs and headline-grabbing tragedies, Duncan's My Life still stands alone as a great document, revealing the truth of her life as she understood it, without reticence or apology or compromise (New York Herald Tribune).
