About this title


The interrelationship between music and literature continues to be a field of growing interest. This groundbreaking study examines the extensive use of musical allusion and imagery found in the novels of contemporary British novelist Iris Murdoch. Focusing primarily on eight novels that span Murdoch's thirty-five year publishing career, Darlene Mettler's investigation explores music in all its disparate forms and suggests a fascinating and innovative approach to the brilliant canon of Dame Murdoch.
