Myth and image in the dance of Isadora Duncan by Jeanne Bresciani( )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The cultural inheritance of Isadora Duncan undergoes 're-vision' via the imaginal theory of archetypal psychology, in contrast to 'revision' via deconstructionist thinking. Findings are based on new documentation from Duncan's library, from data provided by primary figures known to Duncan and through this researcher's intimacy with Duncan's masterworks. Discoveries led to definitive inclusion of Duncan within, both an 'archaeological' and an 'imaginal' Greece. Translations from a panoply of the ancients are among the mother lode of works, which validate Duncan's scholarly immersion in an 'archaeological' Greece. A comprehensive reading of varied sources attest to Duncan's lifelong operation within an 'imaginal' Greece: Duncan's writings, referential to antiquity; the apprehension of testimony by those close to Duncan's inspired, actualized sense of classicism; and participation in the mythopoetic material within the dancer's choreographic oeuvre
