Music in the words : musical form and counterpoint in the twentieth century novel

Author: Alan Frederick Shockley

Summary:
There is a strong tradition of literary analyses of the musical artwork. Simply put, musicology - any writing about music - is an attempt at making analogies between what happens within the world of sound and language itself. This document considers this analogy from the opposite perspective : authors attempting to structure words using musical forms and techniques.
