Rzewski's politically (or at least esthetically) efficacious “compromise” with tradition exposed a fault line within the politicized avant-garde of the late 1960s. On one side were those determined to remain true despite their political commitments to the esthetic principles of avant-gardism that had by then become a tradition in its own right; on the other were those for whom the political commitments of the so-called “new left” outweighed the esthetic. Sometimes the two commitments battled one another within the same unhappy creative personality.
