9780748684618: Literature and Music in the Atlantic World, 1767-1867 (Edinburgh Studies in Transatlantic Literatures EUP)

This new study looks at the relationship of rhetoric and music in the era's intellectual discourses, texts and performance cultures principally in Europe and North America. Catherine Jones begins by examining the attitudes to music and its performance by leading figures of the American Enlightenment and Revolution, notably Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. She also looks at the attempts of Francis Hopkinson, William Billings and others to harness the Orphean power of music so that it should become a progressive force in the creation of a new society. She argues that the association of rhetoric and music that reaches back to classical Antiquity acquired new relevance and underwent new theorisation and practical application in the American Enlightenment in light of revolutionary Atlantic conditions. Jones goes on to consider changes in the relationship of rhetoric and music in the nationalising milieu of the nineteenth century; the connections of literature, music and music theory to changing models of subjectivity; and Romantic appropriations of Enlightenment visions of the public ethical function of music.

About the Author:


Catherine Jones is a Lecturer in English at the University of Aberdeen. She is the author of Literary Memory: Scott's Waverley Novels and the Psychology of Narrative (Bucknell University Press, 2003) and the editor, with David Duff, of Scotland, Ireland, and the Romantic Aesthetic (Bucknell University Press, 2007).

Review:


Literature and Music in the Atlantic World is an ambitious work of synthesis, and a down payment on what we can hope will be further generalizations drawn from Jones's deep engagement with the modes in which musical experience and aesthetic theory drew sustenance from each other, along with their impact on political life during a period of tremendous change and lively - sometimes overheated - international debate.
--European Romantic Review


[An] impressive and attractive book. -- Susan Wollenberg, University of Oxford, BARS review
