    One thought on “Time and the Dancing Image”

    1. Deborah Jowitt writes a very intelligent and interesting non-chronological overview of dance history. Her writing style holds the reader's interest, and even though I have read many similar books, her perceptive insights are original and thought-provoking.

    2. Although I'm a dance critic, I often find dance history tedious--all those names and descriptions! But Jowitt puts the dance into context with artistic and intellectual movements and finds some really fascinating connections along the way. I feel so much more educated now that I've read this. . .
