Franz Schubert by Lawrence Kramer

Book Description

This is the first book to examine Schubert's songs as active shaping forces in the culture of their era rather than as mere reflections of it. Responding to rising new forms of social organisation, Schubert discovered that songs could serve as a medium for shuffling and reshuffling the basic building blocks of identity and desire, especially sexual desire. His songs project a kaleidoscopic array of unexpected human types, all of whom are eligible for a sympathetic response, even the strangest and most disconcerting. Schubert sought to validate these subjective types without subordinating them to a central social or sexual norm. The book describes and contextualises this process and tracks it concretely in a wide variety of songs. Combining close attention to both music and poetry, the book addresses both specialists and non-specialists in a lively, accessible style unburdened by excessive jargon.

Books By Author Lawrence Kramer

Thought of Music by Lawrence Kramer Thought of Music, Paperback (February 2016)

What, exactly, is knowledge of music? And what does it tell us about humanistic knowledge in general? This book grapples directly with these fundamental questions - questions especially compelling at a time when humanistic knowledge is enmeshed in debates about its character and future.

Drum-Taps by Lawrence Kramer Drum-Taps, Paperback (June 2015)

As soon as the war ended in 1865, Whitman published the book, which includes some of his tenderest and most haunting poems. This book introduces readers to one of Whitman's achievements, a profoundly moving work of witness, courage, and lament.

Expression and Truth by Lawrence Kramer Expression and Truth, Paperback (September 2012)

Expression and truth are traditional opposites in Western thought: expression supposedly refers to states of mind, truth to states of affairs. This title features five theses that connect expression to description, cognition, the presence and absence of speech, and the conjunction of address and reply.
