Maxim Gorki

 Maxim Gorki (1868-1936), Russian writer.

Seroff, Victor: The real Isadora. New York, Dial Press, 1971.

 

 

  "I saw Duncan on the stage a few years before that meeting, when they used to write of her as a miracle, one journalist declaring quite astonishingly: Her exquisite body burns us by its blaze of flame. But I don't like and I don't appreciate dancing that is an expression of intellect...

  At Tolstoy's dinner she also danced, having first eaten and drunk vodka.

  Her dance seemed to me to depict the strug-gle between the weight of Duncan's age and the constraint of her body, spoilt by fame and love.

  These words are certainly not meant to be offensive to a woman. They merely speak of the curse of old age."
