About the Author

Franklin Rosemont was born on October 2, 1943, in Chicago, Illinois. His father, Henry, was a labor activist, and mother, Sally, a jazz musician. He edited and wrote an introduction for What is Surrealism?: Selected Writings of Andre Breton, and edited Rebel Worker, Arsenal/Surrealist Subversion, THE RISE AND FALL OF THE DIL PICKLE and Juice Is Stranger Than Friction: Selected Writings of T-Bone Slim. With Penelope Rosemont and Paul Garon he edited THE FORECAST IS HOT!. His work has been deeply concerned with both the history of surrealism (writing a forward for Max Ernst and Alchemy: A Magician in Search of Myth) and of the radical labor movement in America, for instance, writing a biography of Joe Hill. He died on April 12, 2009, in Chicago.

Even though Isadora Duncan was born at the turn of the last century, her wisdom and vision is powerful for readers today. Not only was she a powerful, woman/dancer/artist, but also a progressive philosopher. Feminist extraordinaire! If you want to learn more about this visionary read "her words". Everyone wants to tell you what she was like. Find out from Isadora herself.

Her autobiography is many times better but this is worth reading also for her views on life, art, and more . Her mind was brilliant , creative, original, humanistic and though not as well known for her writings and her perspectives as she should be, she is appreciated by most who are quite surprised once they do familiarize themself with her philosophy and her wonderful ability to put some very difficult to express ideas into words. I find her most inspiring in almost everything she did write about. And was a huge impetus for change politically and especially for women, but really for all human rights.

As the title sais, this is a compilation of the speeches and other writings of Isadora Duncan. It's well put together, organized in timeperiods (ex: chapter 1: Isadoras early years, etc). There are alot of shorter statements, wich is very nice.
