A member of a circle of important 20th century Scottish poets including Hugh MacDiarmid, Sorley MacLean, Robert Garioch, and Sydney Goodsir Smith, MacCaig was somewhat unique in that he never attempted to write in Scots, and generally steered clear of making definitive political statements in his verse.

This book is much smaller than I thought (ok, I should have looked up the dimensions on the product description, my fault) but once you open it the pictures of the drawings are even smaller - 1/3 of the page for each! So so disappointed. I 'm thinking maybe the text will change my mind and I'll love reading it but I bought it for the drawings and they are reproduced in a very small format which takes everything away from the art. Yes, I am very disappointed. this books looks like something you can pick up on the sale table for 5 bucks at the big box book store. Definitely not worth the price. I may yet return it..not sure.

This slight book contains 60 excellent reproductions from among the Isadora Duncan drawings, numbering in the thousands, by Abe Walkowitz and some keen insights into the dance of Isadora Duncan by the author, a dancer, teacher and dance historian. Walkowitz, a leading American Modernist (born in Russia), became fascinated by the distinctive dance inventions of Duncan in the early years of the twentieth century and continued to draw her until his death. As the author points out, he was unique in his ability to capture the essence of her movement, to capture the source and nature of her dance through empathy with the process whereby these emerged from her innards to flow through her body. While there is a minimum of text, through artful use of the writings of Gertrude Stein and a number of others, the author provides insight into what these others, as well as she, herself, feel to be the impulsive force in Duncan's creation and implementation of her creative impulses.
I cannot judge the value of the book for students of the dance with which I am acquainted only as an enchanted onlooker, but I am delighted to find the American art world reminded of one of its superior pioneers and practitioners, The dozen or so, Isadora Duncan drawings I owned, as well as the representation of his once well-known figurative, abstract and urban paintings, which I also proudly displayed, persuade me that this small sample of his work will win him greater support from those who have known it existed. As a viewer of dance, the small volume did provide excellent guidance as to what makes her kind of dance tick.
