Panaesthetics : on the unity and diversity of the arts by Daniel Albright( )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While comparative literature is a well-recognized field of study, the notion of comparative arts remains unfamiliar to many. This book addresses the fundamental question of comparative arts: are there many different arts, or is there one art which takes different forms? This book considers various artistic media, especially literature, music and painting, to discover which aspects of each medium are unique and which can be translated from one to another. Can a poem turn into a symphony, or a symphony into a painting? This book explores how different media interact, as in a drama, when speech, stage decor, and music are co-present, or in a musical composition that employs the collage method of the visual arts. Tracing arguments and questions about the relations among the arts from Aristotle's Poetics to the present day, this book illuminates the under-studied discipline of comparative arts and urges new attention to its riches

Quantum poetics : Yeats, Pound, Eliot, and the science of modernism by Daniel Albright( Book )

22 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a series of patient and original readings, Quantum Poetics demonstrates how Eliot, Lawrence, and others formulated what Albright calls "a wave-theory of poetry," a mode of expression intended to create telepathic intimacy between writer and reader and to encourage a whole new way of thinking about poetry and science as two different aspects of the same reality. This comprehensive study from a leading scholar of Modernism is a fresh examination of the relationship between science and Modernist poetry

Untwisting the serpent : modernism in music, literature, and other arts by Daniel Albright( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modernist art often seems to give more frustration than pleasure to its audience. Daniel Albright shows that this perception arises partly because we usually consider each art form in isolation, rather than collaboration
Modernism and music : an anthology of sources( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If in earlier eras music may have seemed slow to respond to advances in other artistic media, during the modernist age it asserted itself in the vanguard. Modernism and Music provides a rich selection of texts on this moment, some translated into English for the first time. It offers not only important statements by composers and critics, but also musical speculations by poets, novelists, philosophers, and others-all of which combine with Daniel Albright's extensive, interlinked commentary to place modernist music in the full context of intellectual and cultural history

Music speaks : on the language of opera, dance, and song by Daniel Albright( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Daniel Albright comes a collection of recent essays on music and on dance. In these essays, Albright strives to show that music history has an aesthetic of its own, and how music history interacts with intellectual history (from Rousseau and the Encyclopedistes to Paul de Man). The method of these essays is juxtapositive: by abutting music against literature and painting, and by abutting the musics of different centuries, Albright tries to frame a particular work, to isolate what is arresting and important in it." "The essays range widely, from Schubert Lieder to Loie Fuller to Xenakis and Elliott Carter; but they rarely stray far from opera, for the opera house is the venue where the performances speak the most intricate and significant language invented by our culture - a language that speaks in music, and words, and pictures, and light."--Jacket
Berlioz's semi-operas : Roméo et Juliette and La damnation de Faust by Daniel Albright( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most of his large-scale works nevertheless obey the strictures of some preexistent form, whether opera or symphony or mass or cantata; it is chiefly in these two experiments that Berlioz allowed himself full liberty to be Berlioz."
Beckett and aesthetics by Daniel Albright( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beckett and Aesthetics examines Samuel Beckett's struggle with the recalcitrance of artistic media, their refusal to yield to his artistic purposes. As a young man Beckett hoped that writing could provide psychic authenticity and true representation of the physical world; instead he found himself immersed in artificialities and self-enclosed word games. Daniel Albright argues that Beckett escaped from this bind through allegories of artistic frustration and through an art of non-representation, estrangement and general failure. He arrived, Albright shows, at some grasp of fact through the most indirect route available. Albright explores Beckett's experimentation with the notion that an artistic medium might itself be made to speak. This powerful and highly original book explores Beckett's own engagement with radio, film, and television, prose and drama as part of an attempt to escape the confines of the aesthetic. Albright's Beckett becomes a sophisticated theorist of the very notion of the aesthetic

Putting modernism together : literature, music, and painting 1872-1927 by Daniel Albright( Book )

12 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do you rationally connect the diverse literature, music, and painting of an age? Throughout the modernist era-which began roughly in 1872 with the Franco-Prussian War, climaxed with the Great War, and ended with a third catastrophe, the Great Depression-there was a special belligerence to this question. It was a cultural period that envisioned many different models of itself: to the Cubists, it looked like a vast jigsaw puzzle; to the Expressionists, it resembled a convulsive body; to the Dadaists, it brought to mind a heap of junk following an explosion. In Putting Modernism Together, Daniel Albright searches for the center of the modernist movement by assessing these various artistic models, exploring how they generated a stunning range of creative work that was nonetheless wound together aesthetically, and sorting out the cultural assumptions that made each philosophical system attractive. Emerging from Albright's lectures for a popular Harvard University course of the same name, the book investigates different methodologies for comparing the evolution and congruence of artistic movements by studying simultaneous developments that occurred during particularly key modernist years. Going beyond merely explaining how the artists in these genres achieved their peculiar effects, he presents challenging new analyses of telling craft details which help students and scholars come to know more fully this bold age of aesthetic extremism
