H 1 Ballet in western culture : a history of its origins and evolution
Dance literature is enriched with the publication of this comprehensive presentation of the evolution and development of classical dance. With 'Ballet in Western culture', Carol Lee has distilled and integrated an enormous and diverse amount of historical, biographical, and artistic information with precision and clarity. The fascinating story of ballet is told anew with the insight of one who has spent a lifetime dancing herself. The author illuminates the many periods of dance, each in its historical setting, eloquently linking the ages from antiquity to present. Her colorful treatment of medieval and Renaissance dancing as expressions of society and politics is both informative and factual." -- P. ix.
