Synopsis: Written with a nimble and clear prose, Dancing Upon the Shore boldly confronts the intense passion--the tenderness, cruelty, jealousy, desire, heartache--of that enduring mystery known as love.
Dancing Upon the Shore (from the lyric poem "A Crazed Girl" by W. B. Yeats).
A Crazed Girl
That crazed girl improvising her music.
Her poetry, dancing upon the shore,
Her soul in division from itself
Climbing, falling She knew not where,
Hiding amid the cargo of a steamship,
Her knee-cap broken, that girl I declare
A beautiful lofty thing, or a thing
Heroically lost, heroically found.
No matter what disaster occurred
She stood in desperate music wound,
Wound, wound, and she made in her triumph
Where the bales and the baskets lay
No common intelligible sound
But sang, 'O sea-starved, hungry sea.'
W. B. Yeats New Poems, 1938
From the Back Cover: Cover design by Scott Gallagher and Andre Ajibade. Cover photograph by Arnold Genthe (Isadora Duncan dancing on the Beach).
