On Marvellous Things Heard



Product Description

Derived in form from Aristotle’s “Minor Work” of the same title, this variation of ON MARVELLOUS THINGS HEARD explores a range of literary appropriations of music, in terms of translation and metamorphosis. Part investigation, part inventory, and part invention(in the musical sense: a composition in simple counterpoint), this poetically-driven essay assays the narrating subject as she assays the subjects of literature, of music, and of silence. Printed in an edition of 250 with color plate supplied by artist Carrie Gundersdorf and an introduction by G. C. Waldrep.
