Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Musical fiction is a genre of fiction in which music is paramount: both as subject matter, and through the rhythm and flow of the prose, that is, music is manifested through the language itself. One publishing company, Coral Press, publishes only musical fiction. As part of their program to get musical fiction the respect it deserves, Coral Press hosts the Charts, a section devoted to the best in musical fiction, compiled by bibliographer Kellie D. Brown. Notable authors who have written novels of musical fiction include Don DeLillo (Great Jones Street), Tom Perotta (The Wishbones), Lewis Shiner (Glimpses), Roddy Doyle (The Commitments), Robert Dunn (Pink Cadillac), Nick Hornby (High Fidelity), and Scott Spencer (The Rich Man''s Table).

Echoes in the Text
51,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Literature's role in developing a musical canon emerges from this study of German fiction between 1880 and 1987. It provides a close analysis of the various ways in which music is involved in selected novels and novellas by Theodor Fontane, Arthur Schnitzler, Alfred Döblin and Martin Walser. Chapters on Fontane and Schnitzler examine each author's musical biography as background to the use of the art in his fiction. For today's readers, perhaps less familiar with the music on which these texts draw, the study enlarges their appreciation of these narratives by amplifying the resonance of the musical citations.

Music in Contemporary French Cinema
100,09 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book explores composed scores and pre-existing music in French cinema from 1985 to 2015 so as to identify critical musical moments. It shows how heritage films construct space through music, generating what Powrie calls "third space music," while also working to contain the strong women characters found in French heritage films through the use of leitmotifs and musical cues. He analyses fiction films in which the protagonists perform at the piano, showing how musical performance supports the performance of gender. Building on aspects of musical performance, and in particular the use of songs performed in films, Powrie uses a database of 300 films since 2010 to theorize the intervention of music at critical moments as a "crystal-song". Applying Roland Barthes's concept of the "punctum" and Gille Deleuze's concept of the "crystal-image," Powrie establishes the importance of the crystal-song, which reconfigures time as a crystallization of past, present and future.

A tradition in Black fiction--echoing throughout the canon--is the common casting of ordinary women into roles as secondary characters who explain their daily experiences through spontaneous, daily singing.

Attention is paid to these minor characters on the basis that this phenomenon of female singing in fact and fiction changes the way we read and understand Black women.
