KIRKUS REVIEW

Articles, reviews and criticism from the N Y. Herald Tribune, Modern Music, The Kenyon Review, other magazines and dance media, which concentrate primarily on the ballet. From general discussion of the meaning of ballet he goes on to particular performances and performers, to repertory, and evaluation of various seasons. There are some career and professional biographical sketches of individual dancers, there is material on the music and decor for the ballet, there is historical perspective as well as current appraisal, and interpretation of dancing form as well as commentary on the many types of ballet productions. Dated from 1942, these give an expert's opinions for the dance-minded reader.
