Chopin at the boundaries : sex, history and musical genre
The complex cultural status of Chopin-he was a native Pole and adopted Frenchman, a male composer writing in "feminine" genres-is the subject of Kallberg's absorbing book. Combining social history, literary theory, musicology, and feminist thought, this book situates Chopin's music within the construct of his somewhat marginal sexual identity.
