Women of Note; Isadora Duncan
1877-1927. Isadora is considered by many to be the creator of modern dance. She was born in New York and did not leave America until 1899, one year after the SS Mohegan sunk—a British passenger steamer carrying her father, who died in the accident. She traveled to Europe, achieving success in cities such as London and Paris and quickly becoming an inspiration to other artists, poets and authors. In 1913 her likeness was carved over the entrance to the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées.
A communist, she expressed her views on stage—memorably in Boston, when she bared her breast to the audience and exclaimed, “This is red, so am I!”. She had two children out of wedlock and was married in 1922 to a Russian poet, 18 years her junior; Sergei Yesenin. Sergei was an alcoholic and left Isadora after a year, returning to Moscow—he committed suicide at 30 years old. After her husband’s death, Isadora had a passionate affair with another poet, Mercedes de Acosta, and love letters between the two women can be traced all the way into 1927, the year Isadora died. In one, she wrote: ”Mercedes, lead me with your little strong hands and I will follow you—to the top of a mountain. To the end of the world. Wherever you wish.”
Isadora died in France, when one end of the scarf she was wearing became caught in the wheels of her automobile and her neck was broken. The incident, infamous and iconic, is referenced in several artworks including plays, novels and poetry, such as in Sylvia Plath’s poem, Fever 103; One scarf will catch and anchor in the wheel…
