This outstanding collection of the great dancer's heretofore uncollected writings and speeches gives us a vivid new perception of her importance as an original and radical thinker. Starting with reminiscences of her San Francisco childhood, Isadora Speaks features her outspoken views on America, revolutionary Russia, education and the arts, life with Russian poet Serge Esenin, love, woman's emancipation, and dance as a radical force capable of transforming the world and changing life. Prefaced by dance scholar Ann Barzel, this new edition also includes an updated foreword by Franklin Rosemont, on Isadora's extraordinarily diverse and always expanding influence, and fifteen new illustrations.
