    Martha Graham was an American dancer and choreographer regarded as one of the foremost pioneers of modern dance, and is widely considered one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Graham invented a new language of movement, and used it to reveal the passion, the rage and the ecstasy common to human experience/5(8). Although scholars, including myself, use Blood Memory to quote Martha Graham as evidence, other academics and dancers themselves have asserted that Graham did not write or construct the “autobiography.” The cross-reading of archives uncovers the narrative history of the making of Blood Memory, and how Graham, editors, and handlers constructed and reconstructed the book.
