Tristan's shadow : sexuality and the total work of art after Wagner by Adrian Daub( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Wagner conceived some of the nineteenth century's most influential operas-and created some of the most indelible characters ever to grace the stage. But over the course of his polarizing career, Wagner also composed volumes of essays and pamphlets, some on topics seemingly quite distant from the opera house. His influential concept of "Gesamtkunstwerk"--The "total work of art"-famously and controversially offered a way to unify the different media of an opera into a coherent whole. Less well known, however, are Wagner's strange theories on sexuality-like his ideas about erotic acoustics and the metaphysics of sexual difference. Drawing on the discourses of psychoanalysis, evolutionary biology, and other emerging fields of study that informed Wagner's thinking, Adrian Daub traces the dual influence of "Gesamtkunstwerk" and eroticism from their classic expressions in Tristan und Isolde into the work of the generation of composers that followed, including Zemlinsky, d'Albert, Schreker, and Strauss
Hitler's face : the biography of an image by Claudia Schmölders( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Schmolders demonstrates how the adulation of Hitler's face stands at the conjunction of one line stretching back to the eighteenth-century belief that character could be read in the contours of the head and another dating back to the late nineteenth-century quest to sanctify German greatness in a gallery of national heroes. Nationalism was conjoined to a forceful belief in the determinative power of physiognomy in Nazi ideology. The mad veneration of the idealized German face in all its various aspects, and the fanatical devotion to Hitler's face in particular, was but one component of a project that also encouraged the ceaseless contemplation of supposedly degenerate "Jewish" physical traits to advance its goals."--Jacket
Four-handed monsters : four-hand piano playing and nineteenth-century culture by Adrian Daub( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the course of the nineteenth century, four-hand piano playing emerged across Europe as a popular pastime of the well-heeled classes and of those looking to join them. Nary a canonic work of classical music that was not set for piano duo, nary a house that could afford not to invest in them. Duets echoed from the student bedsit to Buckingham Palace, resounded in schools and in hundreds of thousands of bourgeois parlors. Like no other musical phenomenon, it could cross national, social, and economic boundaries, bringing together poor students with the daughters of the bourgeoisie, crowned heads with penniless virtuosi, and the nineteenth century often regarded it with extreme suspicion for that very reason. Four-hand piano playing was often understood as a socially acceptable way of flirting, a flurry of hands that made touching, often of men and women, not just acceptable but necessary. But it also became something far more serious than that, a central institution of the home, mediating between inside and outside, family and society, labor and leisure, nature and nurture. And writers, composers, musicians, philosophers, journalists, pamphleteers and painters took note: in the art, literature, and philosophy of the age, four-hand playing emerged as a common motif, something that allowed them to interrogate the very nature of the self, the family, the community and the state. In the four hands rushing up and down the same keyboard the nineteenth century espied, or thought to espy, an astonishing array of things. Four-Handed Monsters tells not only the story of that practice, but also the story of the astonishing array of things the nineteenth century read into it [Publisher description]
The James Bond songs : pop anthems of late capitalism by Adrian Daub( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

You know the name. You know the number. And, strangely enough, you recognize the songs: "Live and Let Die," "Skyfall," "Nobody Does It Better" and of course "Goldfinger." For more than fifty years, the producers of the James Bond movies have felt the need to open their films with chintzy songs featuring puzzling lyrics about diamonds and guns. And for more than fifty years we've listened to, bought, and sung along with these songs. The Bond-songs make pop critics and pop historians of all of us - there is a canon of them, and whenever a new one hits the airwaves we compare it to that canon. This book is about the canon, but it's as much about the kind of audience that canon has turned us into. The Bond-songs are far more about us the consumers than they are about 007: they talk to us about what pop music has to do with work, they try to tell us what's great (and maybe not so great) about capitalism, they speak about aging and becoming obsolete. Following their trail of bizarre lyrics and retro instrumental gestures we trace a secret history of pop and of our changing ways of listening to pop over the last half century
Cult of the machine : precisionism and American art by Emma Acker( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A fresh look at a bold and dynamic 20th-century American art style<BR /><BR /> Characterized by highly structured, geometric compositions with smooth surfaces, linear qualities, and lucid forms, Precisionism fully emerged after World War I and flourished in the 1920s and 1930s. This insightful publication, featuring more than 100 masterworks by artists such as Charles Sheeler, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Charles Demuth, sheds new light on the Precisionistaesthetic and the intellectual concerns, excitement, tensions, and ambivalences about industrialization that helped develop this important strand of early American modernism.<BR /> <BR /> Essays explore the origins of the style--which reconciled realism with abstraction and adapted European art movements like Purism, Cubism, and Futurism to American subject matter--as well as its relationship to photography, and the ways in which it reflected the economic and social changes brought about by industrialization and technology in the post-World War I world. In addition to making a meaningful contribution to the resurging interest in Modernism and its revisionist narratives, this book offers copious connections between the past and our present day, poised on the verge of a fourth industrial revolution"--
The Doctor Faustus dossier : Arnold Schoenberg, Thomas Mann, and their contemporaries, 1930-1951 by Thomas Mann( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This complete edition of letters and documents between Arnold Schoenberg and Thomas Mann brings together two towering figures of twentieth-century music and literature, both of whom found refuge in Los Angeles during the Nazi era. Culminating in the famous dispute over Mann's novel Doctor Faustus, the correspondence, diary entries, and related articles provide a glimpse inside the private and public lives of these two great artists, the outstanding figures of the German-exile community in California. In the thicket of the controversy was Theodor Adorno, then a budding philosopher, whose contribution to the Faustus affair would make enemies of both families. Gathered here for the first time in English, the letters in this essential volume are complemented by rich primary source materials and an introduction by Germanic scholar Adrian Daub that contextualizes the impact the artists had on twentieth-century thought and culture"--Provided by publisher

Modernism and the cultural press in fin-de-siècle Vienna, 1890-1910 by Kathryn Joy McQueen( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation examines cultural journalism in Vienna from 1890 to 1910. It shows how, beyond aesthetic and philosophical developments of its cultural elite, fin-de-siècle Vienna was also an important moment of transformation and modernization in the world of the press. This alternate "modernist moment" within Vienna elicited among fin-de-siècle cultural commentators a growing narrative of journalistic decline, which assigned the press a pivotal role in the impending crisis of modernity. It also encouraged a wide range of stylistic innovation within the field of cultural journalism, in compliment to experimentation within emerging literary modernisms, visible across the genres of review, correspondence, reportage, and satire. The following study explores these dual aspects of press evaluation and stylistic innovation through a series of narratives that chart the varying thematic and stylistic responses of four prominent Austrian journalists, Hermann Bahr, Max Nordau, Max Winter, and Karl Kraus, to modernist challenges and changes brought by, and reflected in, the Viennese press. Within the context of each journalist's career and oeuvre, the respective chapters also discuss the various Viennese publications, with which they were most closely associated, including Die Neue Freie Presse, Moderne Dichtung, Die Deutsche Zeitung, Die Arbeiter-Zeitung, and Die Fackel. Through this spectrum of journalists, publications, and emerging journalistic genres, this dissertation views the fin-de-siècle media landscape as a potential alternative topography of Viennese modernism's aesthetics and ideologies. By focusing on the thematic tendencies and stylistic strategies of these four popular journalists, it addresses both the aesthetic and ideological implications of fin-de-siècle journalism, and gauges to what extent modernist agendas and ideologies influence the style, analysis, and reception of the emerging mass press
