Summary
  • "Robert Gottlieb's immense sampling of the dance literature - by far the largest such project ever attempted - is both inclusive, to the extent that inclusivity is possible when dealing with so vast a field, and personal: the result of decades of reading." "It limits itself to material within the experience of today's general readers, avoiding, for instance, academic historical writing and treatises on technique. Its earliest subjects are those nineteenth-century works and choreographers that still resonate with dance lovers today: Giselle, The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake; Bournonville and Petipa." "With its huge range of content accompanied by the anthologist's incisive running commentary, Reading Dance will be a source of pleasure and instruction for anyone who loves dance." -- BOOK JACKET.
