Nijinsky Newspaper

€8.07 Members


This journal is a collection of notes left by the great dancer, formed of three parts - Life, Death, Feelings - and made up of anecdotes, memories, philosophical reflections in which appear the figures of his parents, his wife, his daughter, and of her friends dominated by the personality of Serge de Diaghilev. Slowly, over the pages, emerges, more and more clear and more and more sure, the madness which will not let go of Nijinsky and which he felt the prey until his death, which occurred thirty years after the writing of this notebook. "Would there be someone who, reading these lines, could not be moved and not feel the torments I endure?"
