The visionary choreographerand dancer Isadora Duncan (18771927) not only revolutionized dance in the twentiethcentury but blazed a path within the art for other pioneers. While manybiographies have explored Duncan's crucial role as one of the founders ofmodern dance, no other book has proved as critical- as both a historical recordand a vivid evocation of a riveting life-as her autobiography. Now, in thisredesigned and repackaged edition, this fascinating, even sensational work (New York Times), with its romantic effusions and idealisticsentiment, can be appreciated by a new generation. From her early enchantmentwith classical music and poetry to her great successes abroad, to herscandalous love affairs and headline-grabbing tragedies, Duncan's My Life still stands alone as a great document, revealingthe truth of her life as she understood it, without reticence or apology orcompromise (New York Herald Tribune).
