Martha Graham in Love and War

Mark Franko

Oxford University Press

The 1940s and early 1950s are identified as a crucial period for Graham both professionally and personally. This chapter discusses Graham’s decline in the 1960s and the historical misapprehension of her contribution at that time. This chapter proposes that Graham was a foundational figure for the analysis of patriarchy that was launched at the end of the 1960s. It studies the importance of the mother-daughter relation in her work.

Keywords:   patriarchy, mother-daughter relationship, Martha Graham
