Summary:
Here, Levitz demonstrates how a group of collaboratoring artists - Igor Stravinsky, Ida Rubenstein, Jacques Copeau, André Gide and others - used the myth of Perséphone to perform and articulate their most deeply held beliefs about four topics significant to modernism: religion, sexuality, death, and historical memory in art.
