Chopin at the Boundaries by Jeffrey Kallberg

Book Description

The complex status of Chopin in our culture - he was a native Pole and adopted Frenchman, and a male composer writing in "feminine" genres - is the subject of this text. Combining social history, literary theory, musicology, and feminist thought, the author situates Chopin's music within the construct of his somewhat marginal sexual identity and explores how this should figure in our understanding of his compositional methods. Through this approach, Jeffrey Kallberg reveals a Chopin situated precisely where questions of gender open up into the question of genre.
