Schubert's choice of poets has traditionally come under fire for the preponderance of mediocre talent, and yet many of these writers were highly esteemed in their day. The author has chosen four such poets--Gabriele von Baumberg, Theodor Körner, Johann Mayrhofer, and Ernst Schulze--in order to reexamine their lives, works, and Schubert's music to their verse. All four poets were vivid inhabitants of a vivid era, and their tribulations afford us added insight into the upheavals, the manners and mores, of their day.

Review:

The author, a professor of musicology at Notre Dame University, examines the lives, times, and oeuvre of four poets whose verses were set by Schubert: Theodor Koener, Ernst Schulze, Johann Mayhofer and Gabriele von Bamberg. The book, while somewhat esoteric for the general reader, offers valuable insights into the poets' styles and the events that shaped their lives and their work. If you have a strong interest in Schubert and his time, you will find this a very useful volume indeed.

Review:

"Simply stated, the book is interesting from beginning to end. Abundant examples from both poetry and music are included along with copious, information-laden endnotes and a substantial bibliography. This very important book is recommended for comparative literature and German language studies as well as music." Choice
