|ISADORA: A SENSATIONAL LIFE|
most famous woman of the first quarter of the 20th century may have been
Mary Pickford, but the most influential, and the most notorious, was Isadora
Duncan. She was the progenitor and soul of a new art form, modern dance.
She was the prototype of the uninhibited young American whose freshness
and originality charmed jaded old Europe. And for decades she startled
respectable society -- even as she helped transform it -- with her flouting
of conventions, both onstage and off. You would have to go back to George
Sand or Byron to find a comparably galvanizing figure."
