⤖ Free Hardcover @Tango: The Art History of Love ⦜ PDF by Robert Farris Thompson 䏭 Starred Review Here at last is an antidote to those trite coffee table books that treat the tango with purple prose In language no doubt inspired by the lyrics of its subject, this serious volume examines and celebrates the cultural history of the famed Argentine dance, conveying its real passion and the author s passion for it Thompson, the renowned Yale Africanist and art historian, convincingly evokes the often obscured African roots of the dance, whose name comes from the Ki Kongo word for moving in time to a beat He then explores the tango s relationship to cakewalk and ragtime, Cuba s habanera and Rossini s operas, along with the mutual admiration between the father of tango, Carlos Gardel, and the tenor Enrico Caruso Thompson tells the stories of tango s composers and performers, from the female composer Eladia Blzquez to poet and lyricist Jorge Luis Borges Hollywood versions of the dance pale once Thompson begins to mine the riches of tango s rhythms, lyrics, philosophy and steps He explains the sinuous figure eight footwork of ochos, the boleo circular leg thrusts and the dramatic corte y quebrada cut and break steps that mimic the real life emotional combat of relationships There may be too much detail for generalist readers, and even devotees will need to pause to digest all of the information given Still, for fans of dance, music and cultural history, this is the real deal Bw illus Sept 30 Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Thompson inflames us with his reverence for the form Mikhail BaryshnikovThompson helps us understand the way artistry and ancestry combine to make an art form of the body The Washington PostElegant Uplifting and timely Thompson rescues tango from a one dimensional tristesse, mining in its working class origins emotions of defiance, freedom, self control, humor, love, and redemption Foreign Affairs Thompso treats tango as narrative art, literature and way of life By extensively tracing the lines of this rich suite of moves, Thompson s work gives a dance started in the early 1900s the weight of a centuries old form Newsweek From the Trade Paperback edition.
