9780316860482: F.M.: The Life Of Frederick Matthias Alexander: Founder of the Alexander Technique
Review:

Michael Bloch has done the world a great service by writing this life of a man who deserves to be more widely acknowledged and celebrated. ( COUNTRY LIFE)

Bloch presents the facts in poised, gentlemanly prose, noting foibles without moralising, and dryly alive to amusing details. ( TLS)

From the Publisher:

The Alexander Technique is a method of muscular re-education, which has become standard training for actors, dancers and singers, and is practised for health reasons all over the world. Its founder, Frederick Matthias Alexander (1869-1955), was an Australian actor who stumbled upon it in the 1890s after studying himself in mirrors to discover why he had lost his voice. He realised that most people suffered from the same postural defects he had noticed in himself, and that this explained much of what went wrong with them. F.M. (as he was known) came to London in 1904 and became enormously successful. During the First World War he practised in America with equal success, converting the American philosopher John Dewey to his cause. He wrote four books (all still in print), and his supporters included Aldous Huxley, George Bernard Shaw and Stafford Cripps. He was, however, a difficult and argumentative man who made enemies. Towards the end of his life he embarked on a libel action against the South African government, which had accused him of charlatanism. He won, and went on practising and propagating his technique until his death aged 86.

Descripción Little, Brown Book Group, 2004. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: In 1892, a young Australian actor found himself afflicted by hoarseness whenever he started to recite. Observing himself in mirrors, he discovered his problem arose from habitual "misuse" of the relationship of the head, neck, and back. Gradually, he evolved a method for overcoming the problem. The man was F. M. Alexander, and his method became known as the Alexander Technique, a unique form of muscular re-education that is now practiced around the world and is standard training for actors, dancers and singers. In this meticulosly researched biography, Michael Bloch charts the life of Alexander; from his harsh beginnings in Tasmania to the dedication of followers like John Dewey and Aldous Hukley, he reveals the strengths and failings of a man now recognized as one of the innovators of his day.
