"Ce texte majeur du compositeur est un document essentiel pour comprendre dans quel esprit sa musique fut conçue. Il est formé de six chapitres d'inégale longueur : le Prologue et l'Épilogue, qui traitent essentiellement de questions esthétiques et musicales, dont celle de la musique à programme, entourent les quatre chapitres consacrés a Emerson, Hawthorne ,Les Alcott et Thoreau, qui correspondent aux quatre mouvements de la sonate, et où le compositeur développe une réflexion aussi bien esthétique que philosophique, avec ses implications politiques et sociales."--Page 4 de la couverture
