Narratives of masculinity and femininity: two Schumann song cycles

Samuels, Robert (2006). Narratives of masculinity and femininity: two Schumann song cycles. In: Da Sousa Correa, Delia ed. Phrase and subject: Studies in Literature and Music. Oxford, UK: Legenda, pp. 135–145.



The confluence between music and literature, long hymned as sister arts, is a newly burgeoning field of critical inquiry. This innovative collection of interdisciplinary essays provides a valuable introduction to the field, mapping the contours of recent research and investigating the mutual aesthetic influence of the two arts and their common historical ground. The examination of literary works using music as an analogy for literary composition and agent of cultural value, and the consideration of musical works whose structure is derived from literary models will excite the interest of both professional scholars and students in the fields of musicology, literary studies and modern European languages.
