Martha: The Life and Work of Martha Graham

9780091752194: Martha: The Life and Work of Martha Graham

Martha Graham was a visionary genius, a choreographer and dancer who single-handedly invented a new language of dance. She was also a tempestuous and unrelenting taskmaster and a woman who would sacrifice everything - love, friendship, money - for the sake of her art. De Mille was Graham's friend from the 1920s until Graham's death in 1991. This biography provides a portrait of the creator of "Clytemnestra", "Seraphic Dialogue" and "Appalachian Spring". De Mille also reveals Graham's stormy emotional life - including her failed marriage to Eric Hawkins, her forced retirement as a dancer at 72, her decline into alcoholism and her remarkable rebirth.
