The English Review

January 1918 (Classic Reprint)

€ 16.04

Excerpt from The English Review: January 1918 And something in the particular elegance of the dance, the scenery, the avoidance of emphasis, the evasive, Winding turn of things, and, above all, the intellectual as well as sensuous appeal of a living symbol, which can reach the brain through the eyes, in the visual, concrete, imagina tive way, has seemed to make the ballet concentrate in itself a good deal of the modern ideal in matters of artistic expression. Nothing is stated, there is no intrusion of words used for the irrelevant purpose of describing; a world rises before one, the picture lasts only long enough to have been there: and the dancer, with her gesture, all pure symbol, evokes from her mere beautiful motion, idea, sensation, all that one need know of events. There, before you, she exists, in harmonious life; and her rhythm reveals to you the soul of her imagined being.
