Product Overview

Melopoetics, the study of the multifarious relations between music and literature, has emerged in recent years as an increasingly popular field of interdisciplinary inquiry. In this volume, noted musicologists and literary critics explore diverse topics of shared concern such as literary theory as a model for musical criticism, genre theories in literature and music, the criticism and analysis of texted music and the role of aesthetic, historical and cultural understanding in concepts of text/music convergence. These fourteen essays - united here not by a common ideology but by common subject matter - demonstrate how musical and literary scholarship can combine forces effectively on the common ground of contemporary critical theory and interpretive practice. The concluding essay by interdisciplinary historian Hayden White locates this ambitious enterprise of contemplating music and text in the larger context of intellectual history. *Author: Scher, Steven Paul/ Steven Paul, Scher *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 348 *Publication Date: 2006/11/23 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.98 x 9.01 x 0.77 inches
