Editorial Reviews


"A work of genuine delights. . . . As one of the first serious attempts to examine a core repertory from a perspective shaped by deconstructionist theory, it is ambitious in aim and rigorous in technique." -- Robert Carl, Notes

"An important account of the discursive nature of a variety of canonic nineteenth-century musical texts. . . . Kramer's book in my judgment is a sign of life in musicology, and one that comes none too soon." -- Richard Leppert,Journal of Musicological Research

"[Its] importance for literary scholars lies in the models provided of cultural work beyond semantic confines, in the consequent rethinking of the categories of analysis, and incidentally in some fine accounts of passages of Wordsworth, Coleridge, Goethe, and others." -- Marshall Brown, The Wordsworth Circle

About the Author

Lawrence Kramer is Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Fordham University and a composer. His Music and Poetry: The Nineteenth Century and After (1984), is available from California in paperback.
