The visionary choreographer and dancer, Isadora Duncan (1877 - 1927) not only revolutionized dance in the twentieth century, but she blazed a path within the art for other pioneers.

In light of Duncan's innovations and their impact on her contemporaries in the press, in the arts and among the intelligentsia of Europe, she became a cultural phenomenon, with particular spiritual and `soul-ful' attributes. By 1903 when she was hailed in Germany as 'die gottliche, heilige Isadora' (the goddess-like one, St. Isadora) and carried triumphantly through the streets on unhitched carriages by the public she had shifted from a mere celebrity to a cultural icon.

While many biographies have explored Duncan's crucial role as one of the founders of modern dance, no other book has proved as critical - both as a historical record and vivid evocation of a riveting life as her autobiography. Now, 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 can be appreciated by a new generation.
